The 2019 Honda Odyssey and the 2019 Toyota Sienna are both well-equipped minivans for families at all stages. But which one is the better buy? We compare the top-of-the-line Odyssey Elite with the top-tier Sienna Limited Premium, and it’s clear that the Odyssey offers a lower price, higher residual value, and better safety scores. It’s no wonder U.S. News and World Report calls the Odyssey an “excellent minivan.”


The Odyssey Elite has a better overall value than the Sienna Limited Premium. To compare, the Odyssey has a MSRP of $46,970*, whereas the Sienna Limited Premium will reach up to $47,335.

Safety is a top-priority for any vehicle, but is especially important in a minivan to protect the occupants inside the cabin and give drivers more peace of mind. The Odyssey earns the top scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)**, earning 5 stars for Front Passenger Crash Test and the Overall Frontal Crash Safety Rating.
