There are more than a few options when it comes to hip, ultra-functional minivans. If you’re in the market for one, chances are you’ve been looking at the 2015 Toyota Sienna and the 2015 Honda Odyssey. Both come from trusted brands and offer plenty of features on their base models. To make your decision easier, we’ve compared each base model and boiled them down to a few important differences.

Safety and Warranty Stats

For minivan owners, safety is absolutely vital. Both the Sienna and Odyssey offer a large number of basic safety features, like full airbag systems, height-adjustable front seatbelts with pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, and electronic stability and traction control. Both vehicles also garnered 5 star crash tests from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, though the Sienna gained slightly higher scores in some areas.

The Sienna does offer a few key safety features that the Odyssey does not. The Sienna offers standard Safety Connect technology, which automatically notifies emergency services if needed. The Sienna also has optional features like a Cross-Path Warning system, all-wheel drive, and Pre-Collision Warning System with responsive seatbelts.

The Sienna also has the edge on warranties, with completely covered scheduled maintenance for 2 years or 25,000 miles. There are also more Toyota dealerships than Honda dealerships, making maintenance more convenient for many drivers.

Performance and Power

While it’s a close race, the Toyota Sienna pulls ahead when it comes to pure power. The Sienna is outfitted with a 3.5L DOHC V6 engine that delivers 266 hp, while the Odyssey has a 3.5L SOHC V6 engine with 248 hp. The Sienna also has the edge when it comes to acceleration—reaching speeds slightly faster than the Odyssey, while also managing to have a quicker stopping distance due to larger brake rotors. The Sienna can go from 0 to 30 mph in just 2.6 seconds, but it takes the Odyssey 3.1 seconds. The minivan from Toyota can decelerate from 60 mph to 0 mph in 177 feet, but with the Odyssey, it will take 179 feet to stop from 60 mph. The Sienna also provides a smoother, more stable ride due to a longer wheelbase and added rear stabilizer bar in the suspension.

Design and Ergonomics

Ergonomically smart design will ensure you don’t feel frustrated during your car trips. The Sienna offers optional remote start, standard easy entry system, one-touch locking power windows, standard automatic headlights, and extendable visors. These amenities are not matched by the Honda Odyssey.
