The 2016 Toyota Sienna standard features certainly represent an advancement from past Toyota minivans, but is it enough to be competitive in the Hampton Roads auto market? What is it that you need in a minivan? We think that when you compare the amenities of the latest Sienna to the 2016 Honda Odyssey, you’ll see that Honda’s minivan simply gives drivers more in the way of features, fuel economy, and passenger space.
2016 Toyota Sienna vs. 2016 Honda Odyssey
There are three main areas that a vehicle like a minivan needs to excel in to serve a family well: fuel economy, cabin space, and features.
First, take a look at all of the amenities you’ll find on a 2016 Odyssey that are unavailable or require an upgrade to the 2016 Toyota Sienna standard features:
- 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system
- Seven-speaker CD stereo system
- Power-adjustable driver’s seat
- Stereo anti-theft system
- Vehicle theft-deterrent system
- Privacy glass
- Floor mats
When it comes to cabin space, the Odyssey comes out ahead as well:
- 2016 Honda Odyssey LX models feature 172.6 cubic feet of passenger volume.
- The 2016 Sienna L only has 164.4 cubic feet of passenger space.
While both of these vehicles are powered by a V6 engine, Honda gives drivers more power and a superior fuel economy:
- The 2016 Sienna L has a 3.5L V6 with 245 hp and earns 25 highway and 18 city mpg.
- The 2016 Honda Odyssey LX features a 250-hp 3.5L V6 and gets an EPA-estimated 28 highway and 19 city mpg.*
All of those differences add up to some pretty significant advantages for the Odyssey.
Drivers looking for more than these standards will be happy to know that the 2016 Odyssey has six different trim levels available to Hampton Roads drivers, giving you a wide range of features to choose from. The Sienna only has five trim levels.
