OdysseyFeature4If you’re in the market for a new family vehicle in West Michigan, we know you have tons of choices available to you, and you might be looking at the 2014 Toyota Sienna Limited for its value, but if you are, we recommend you take a minute to think about the 2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite.

It has no trouble going toe to toe with the Sienna, and we think you’ll be happier with what you get for your money in the Odyssey.

The HondaVac Sets it Apart

We’re going to start with the most obvious feature, the one that’s getting a ton of media attention and has drivers flocking to the Odyssey Touring Elite: the vacuum. If you didn’t know about the HondaVac, you did read that right. The Odyssey Touring Elite comes with a built-in vacuum designed in collaboration with ShopVac to help keep your minivan spick and span.

Tired of having to take the car to one of those big industrial vacuums and pump it full of quarters? You won’t have to anymore, as the HondaVac lets you use it for up to eight minutes after you’ve shut off the vehicle, giving you the ability to clean up any spills before they become problems.

The fact is that this convenience will be enough for many drivers, but it’s just the start of the differences between the Sienna Limited and the Odyssey Touring Elite. The other important one we want to point out to you is fuel economy. The Odyssey Touring Elite with automatic transmission gets an EPA-estimated 28 highway mpg* while the Sienna Limited AWD V6 only manages 23 highway mpg.

The Odyssey has the advantage at multiple trim levels, too, whether you’re looking at the Touring Elite or the basic LX. See how the Odyssey LX compares to the Sienna L.
