Minivans have a few features that every family expects, with “enough room for the family and some friends” and “sliding side doors” being toward the top. Perhaps the most important for many families is the fuel economy. Before settling on the 2016 Town & Country mpg ratings, we want to put it up alongside a top competitor—the 2016 Honda Odyssey—so that you can see which of these two vehicles might better fit into the family budget.
How Does the Fuel Economy Stack Up?
While both of these minivans are powered by a V6 engine to give you plenty of power when you’re in a hurry and need to make up for lost time, the Odyssey offers a superior fuel economy than the 2016 Town & Country mpg ratings, making it easier on the wallet:
- The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country has earned an EPA-estimated 25 highway and 17 city mpg for 20 mpg combined city/highway.
- 2016 Honda Odyssey models have an EPA-estimated 28 highway and 19 city mpg for 22 mpg combined city/highway.*
And it might seem like those numbers are close enough to be negligible, but the fact is that you’ll notice the difference in how often you’re filling up shortly after owning your new vehicle.
That’s not the only advantage of the Odyssey, either. We compared Honda’s minivan to the 2016 Town & Country features to give drivers a better idea of which minivan is outfitted to best fit their needs. Honda still continues to redefine how drivers think of “standard features,” and Chrysler is still catching up.
Test Drive an Odyssey
The fuel economy is just one part of a very large picture, and the only way for you to know for sure if a minivan is right for you is to get behind the wheel and take it for a drive. We can show you all around the new Odyssey and introduce you to its many exciting features; starting off with the new Special Edition trim is a great way to get a well-equipped and technologically advanced minivan without needing to go for the top-of-the-line trim level, too.
