Toyota Sienna Vs. Honda Odyssey, 2013
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Odyssey than in the Toyota Sienna, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there’s not much difference between front seat comfort in the Toyota Sienna and the Honda Odyssey.
With the Honda Odyssey, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota Sienna, due to its tank size and fuel economy.
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Toyota Sienna is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Odyssey. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it’s built. Both the Toyota Sienna and the Honda Odyssey have similar Destination Charges.
The Toyota Sienna is a little narrower than the Honda Odyssey, so you’ll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Toyota Sienna takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Odyssey.
With similar torque, the Toyota Sienna and the Honda Odyssey are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.
The Toyota Sienna has a larger turning radius than the Honda Odyssey, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
If you’ve got something you need to pull, the Toyota Sienna will do just as well as the Honda Odyssey, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Toyota Sienna has a little more horsepower than the Honda Odyssey.
The Toyota Sienna has less seating than the Honda Odyssey, making the Honda Odyssey the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You’ll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Toyota Sienna as you will in the Honda Odyssey.
The Toyota Sienna comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Odyssey.March 22, 2013 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #940556abcd2Participant
A)Honda has better gas mileage
B)The odyssey is better made and can handle the wear and tear of kids much better
C)You usually get more bang for the buck with an odyssey. Especially if you are comparing an ex to a sienna le
D)The outside of the sienna is definitely more appealing and it is a bit shorter and a bit less wide. However, the interior trim and finish of the oddysey is better
D)The backup camera and audio system is much better on odyssey and you can only get comparable back up camera on the sienna if you go upmarket or as part of a package.
a) Honda has a proven damage waiver and is inclusive in the lease toyota is only gotten through a third party provider and tacks on 10-20 dollars per month(also provider might not be around when lease is up)
b)honda has gap insurance built in toyota you usually have to provide for or build into the lease
C)Honda is basically the only company left that has no lease end disposition fee and you can just give back the car as is. Toyota charges a $400 dollar fee at lease end if you do not purchase your vehicle or lease or purchase a new toyota/lexus at the end of contract.
P.s. If you are willing to take a chance Chrysler might save you alot but many people have spent significant and multiple times with repairs by the dealership even on short term leases.
Whichever you choose they are both good choices and may Hashem give you Hatzlacha wherever you may goMarch 22, 2013 9:06 pm at 9:06 pm #940557Veltz MeshugenerMember
On the one hand, the Sienna is cheaper. On the other hand, it also gets better reviews. So it can be a tough choice.March 22, 2013 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm #940558popa_bar_abbaParticipant

don’t be a sheep. quest.March 24, 2013 3:05 am at 3:05 am #940560a maminParticipant
I’ve had both. Absolutely no comparison, Toyota is a much better car. The pick up is definitely better and the ride is much smoother! We definitely did not spend any less on gas with our Odyssey.March 24, 2013 4:08 am at 4:08 am #940561spectrumParticipant
Thank you “a mamin”. That’s percisley what I was looking for, expeirience. But what years were both of them?
Anyone else can give feedback on their odyssey or sienna?March 24, 2013 4:11 pm at 4:11 pm #940562
You might want to wait untill the 2014 models are released, should be around September.
I hate the fact that Toyota has such long life cycles. And their ‘all new’ is just a minor appearance change.
I do like their quality though.March 24, 2013 6:21 pm at 6:21 pm #940563Veltz MeshugenerMember
2cents: According to Consumer Reports (which I read a while ago, so I don’t know if it still holds) cars tend to be higher quality later in the life cycle since they’ve been fine tuning the various capabilities and fixing little mistakes for six years. It might be worse for your street cred to be driving a car that looks just like the ’08, but it might be better value.March 24, 2013 8:27 pm at 8:27 pm #940564
Maybe yes maybe not, however the car I drive, was unchanged for five years, not even minor changes, the only change is the date on the manufacturing sticker.
