With the 2018 model year, the Odyssey has stepped up its game. A total redesign is quite a big step for the van that earned the number one ranking from U.S. News and World Report. This magazine has also given the Odyssey it’s Best Minivan for Families Award. The 2018 Toyota Sienna, on the other hand, is not a departure from its predecessor. It contains some updates, but the basic design from 2010 remains in play.


The Honda Odyssey offers significantly more passenger space. It is rated at 172 cu.ft. while the Sienna is rated at 164 cu.ft. Perhaps that’s why the 2018 edition is offering standard seating for eight. The van has the room if you need the seating. Honda has also created more flexibility. The 38-cu.ft. hold can be expanded with the folding third-row seats. The center seat can be removed. The center outboard seats can slide sideways to create a variety of configurations. Of course, you can still get seven-seat editions like the Sienna’s standard layout.


The 2018 Odyssey has a new engine and a new choice of transmissions. With more horsepower than before the Honda is ready to challenge the Sienna and its eight-speed automatic. The Odyssey’s new body has lost weight by nearly 100 pounds. This improves fuel economy and handling. Also improving drivability, Honda engineers achieved an increase of 44 percent in torsional rigidity. Odysseys also have cylinder reduction technology to reduce fuel use during long cruises. Honda’s idle stop technology reduces city fuel use because it stops the engine at red lights. Although it doesn’t affect performance, Honda drivers are sure to like the new push button gear change system. Along with standard push button start, it offers certainty and simplicity.

Exclusive Features

The Honda Odyssey also has some features that you won’t find on the Toyota Sienna. Active noise cancellation is standard on every Odyssey. An available built-in vacuum is ready to clean up the mess your kids make. If your kids get rowdy or the toddler is crying, there’s Honda’s exclusive Cabin Watch. You can use this camera system to see what’s happening behind you. There is also a Car Talk system that is comparable to the Toyota Easy Speak microphone. While both the Sienna and Odyssey have a standard touchscreen, only Honda has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Crash avoidance is emphasized by both the Honda and Toyota minivans. Similar systems are offered on each with a few notable exceptions. Of the two, only the Odyssey offers a special blind zone camera that is housed in the passenger side mirror. A clear view of side traffic is broadcast to the touchscreen when the driver signals for it. Road departure mitigation helps prevent the Odyssey from travelling onto the shoulder and into danger.

There’s so much more to explore with the 2018 Honda Odyssey. Take some time to test drive at Honda of Chantilly.
