2016 Toyota Sienna vs 2016 Honda Odyssey
While you’ve heard us mention that the minivan segment has been steadily decreasing in popularity for years, there are still two titans that stand tall above the other stragglers. We can’t believe it’s taken us this long to make the comparison, but we thought it was about time we pitted the 2016 Toyota Sienna vs 2016 Honda Odyssey to see the similarities and differences between the two and discover what types of advantages the Sienna might have over its biggest competito.
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota Sienna
We created the table above to show those differences and similarities, and as you can see the Toyota Sienna tends to get the nod. Let’s start at the top with performance, where both minivans are quite comparable. But even though they’re close, the Sienna still has a pretty decent advantage in the way of 18 horsepower. That’s not a huge leg up, but it is enough to note.
Turning towards capacities, many people might have thought the Odyssey would be the front-runner as its vehicles are known for being quite spacious. Not in this case, however, as the Sienna has an extra 0.7 cu. ft. behind the back row and an extra 1.5 cu. ft. with all of the seats folded flat. Again, that’s not a massive advantage, but it will let you fit just a little bit more luggage or cargo into the van when you’re on the go. However when it comes to tagging things along behind you, both minivans are equal in that they offer a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs.
Even though its advantages are small, we think this comparison shows that the 2016 Toyota Sienna might be the smarter option in the minivan segment.
