Getting ready to purchase a new minivan can be a challenge for the average family. No potential buyer wants to spend too much on their next automobile, but most also know that it’s easy to end up with a disappointing ride if you’re only paying attention to the price tag! We here at West Michigan Honda Dealers want you to get the most out of your next car, so we’ve compared the price of the 2016 Toyota Sienna to that of the 2016 Honda Odyssey. Although the Odyssey has a slightly higher base price, it ends up being a much better deal overall.
Pricing and Trims
Both minivans come in five trim options. The Sienna’s trims tend to be slightly lower in terms of price, at least until you start looking into upgrades! For starters, the Sienna’s base trim is available for $28,850 MSRP, while the base LX trim of the Odyssey will cost you $29,550 MSRP.*
The difference in pricing increases slightly as we begin to look at the higher-end trims, but Honda’s pricing always remains competitive—especially considering the features that you’ll get for the Odyssey’s cost! The Premium XLE trim of the 2016 Toyota Sienna is priced at $38,605 MSRP. The top-of-the-line Odyssey Touring Elite is priced at $45,025 MSRP.*
Performance and Amenities
Choosing the 2016 Honda Odyssey will beget you many advantages, the first of which is improved fuel economy. In the Odyssey, you’ll get an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway and 19 in the city.** Its competitor, the Sienna, falls behind with only 25 mpg on the highway and 18 mpg city.
Additionally, you’ll enjoy more safety in the 2016 Odyssey, which received a better NHTSA Front Passenger crash test rating than the Toyota Sienna, and also comes equipped with electronic parking assistance! Complete with a power driver’s seat, seat-back storage, and 8.2 additional cubic feet of passenger volume—172.6 cubic feet to the Sienna’s 164.4 cubic feet—the Odyssey is the clear winner in this comparison.
