2013 Toyota Sienna vs. 2013 Honda Odyssey
You can try to fight it. You can hold your breath and stomp your feet, like your kids do. Or you can just relax and accept the fact that it’s time to buy a minivan. If you can find solace in anything, you can feel better in knowing that today’s crop of minivans are more powerful, more fuel-efficient and have a wider range of options than the oversized cargo haulers we were herded into as children. Now that you have reached the final stage of grief, acceptance, you can start looking at minivan options. Today we are going to compare the 2013 Toyota Sienna vs. the 2013 Honda Odyssey.
Both vehicles are powered by a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine. However, where the Toyota Sienna minivan, currently available at Toyota of Naperville starts to score points in the 2013 Toyota Sienna vs. the 2013 Honda Odyssey battle is in the arena of horsepower. The Sienna is rated for 266-horsepower to the Odyssey’s 248-hp. All Toyota Siennas come with a six-speed automatic transmission that will get the minivan an Environmental Protection Agency fuel-estimated 18 miles per gallon in the city and 25 miles per gallon on the highway with the front-wheel drive powertrain. The all-wheel drive option for the Sienna drops two miles per gallon on both sides of the equation.
The Honda Odyssey does not have an all-wheel drive option but does have a pair of transmission options; a five-speed automatic that gets 18 mpg (city) and 27 mpg (highway) and a six-speed version that gets 19 mpg/28 mpg. A difference of two or three miles per gallon is a veritable wash in the comparison of the 2013 Toyota Sienna vs. the 2013 Honda Odyssey.
At Toyota of Naperville, our goal is not to sell you a vehicle. We want to help you make the best informed decision you can. And when it comes to choosing a minivan like the 2013 Toyota Sienna vs. the 2013 Honda Odyssey, it is the little things that can help you make the final call. Both minivans have their little niceties that are engineered to make things more convenient. One of the more interesting features that the Toyota Sienna has to offer is a second row bench seat that is a 40/20/40 split. It allows the center section to slide forward toward the driver and front passenger to give them easier access to a baby in a car seat.
Also our minivan has a wider array of technology options, especially at the higher trims. With the Toyota Sienna you can have all the usual things like a large 8-inch touchscreen interface and you have the option of having a dual entertainment system in the rear seats that allows for two different media to be played or watched at the same time.
