The 2019 Honda Odyssey and the 2019 Toyota Sienna are both remarkable minivans, but when compared side by side which one comes out on top? Comparing the top-of-the-line Odyssey Elite to the Sienna Limited Premium, it’s clear that the Odyssey offers more space, better safety scores, and a better overall value. 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. With an MSRP of $46,970* for the Odyssey, the Sienna Limited Premium will reach up to $47,355.

Residual Value

Honda’s reputation for excellence and high residual value is no different with the Odyssey which has a 45% residual value after 36 months and 33% after 60 months. For drivers leasing or hoping to one day trade in, a high residual value means the vehicle will hold more of its value for a longer period of time. The Sienna will loose its value more quickly with just 40% residual value after 36 months. And after 60 months, the Sienna will only have 30% residual value.


Safety is a top-priority for any vehicle, but minivans especially need to achieve top safety and crash test scores to 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. In those same categories, the Sienna fell short, earning just 4 stars.


The Odyssey offers a spacious and cavernous interior for both passengers and cargo. Even tall adults sitting in one of the rear rows will have more head and leg room than the Sienna.


  • Odyssey – 39.2 inches in the 2nd row. 38.3 inches in the 3rd row.
  • Sienna – 38 inches in the 2nd row. 35.9 inches in the 3rd row.


  • Odyssey – 40.9 inches in the 1st row. 40.9 inches in the 2nd row. 38.1 inches in the 3rd row.
  • Sienna – 40.5 inches in the 1st row. 37.6 inches in the 2nd row. 36.3 inches in the 3rd row.
