2016 Honda OdysseyIf you’re in the market for an exceptional minivan that will comfortably accommodate you and yours as well as deliver some of the very latest amenities, you’ll find what you’re looking for in the 2016 Honda Odyssey.

The Odyssey defeats various rival minivans in terms of its convenience- and comfort-boosting offerings, outdoing, for instance, the 2016 Toyota Sienna standard features.

We have performed a comparison between the Odyssey and the Sienna, identifying various features the Odyssey offers that the Sienna does not. Keep reading to explore them!

Packed with the Features You Want

One of the Honda Odyssey’s most admired amenities is its HondaVAC system, which is offered as a standard feature in the Odyssey SE and Touring Elite trims. This built-in vacuum cleaner makes cleaning up after trips and children an absolute breeze, and it’s something no busy parent can do without! Unfortunately for Toyota drivers, a built-in vacuum cleaner is not offered in any of the Sienna models, so you’ll have to go to the car wash with a supply of quarters in order to vacuum out your van.

A high-resolution Honda DVD rear entertainment system is another feature that helps make driving a more blissful experience when you have kids in tow, effectively eliminating those choruses of “Are we there yet?” This entertainment system comes standard in three of the 2016 Odyssey models and is available on a fourth trim. Taking onboard entertainment options even further, a Honda DVD UltraWide entertainment system with HDMI technology is further offered as a standard feature in the Odyssey Touring Elite model. In contrast, the Toyota Sienna’s entertainment system is not offered as a standard feature in any of the Sienna models; if you want an entertainment system in the Sienna, you’ll pay more for it, as it is only available as an optional upgrade for an added cost.

Other features offered standard for the base price in the Odyssey but not found in the base-model Sienna include:

  • Anti-theft stereo system
  • Power driver’s seat
  • Privacy glass
  • Seatback storage
