Starting at just $29,990, the 2018 Honda Odyssey is a premium minivan that offers comfortable rides for up to eight people. The 2017 Toyota Sienna is a minivan that also has many convenient features for large families. Protected by the Honda Sensing package, the Odyssey is a class leader in active safety. Featuring navigation with 3-D graphics, the vehicle’s 8.0-inch infotainment system is surely superior to the Sienna’s 7.0-inch Entune system.

Which Active Safety Features are Better?
When a front crash is likely, the Collision Mitigation Braking System brings the 2018 Honda Odyssey to a full stop. Before the brakes are applied automatically, you’ll be alerted by the Forward Collision Warning. You can also reduce the potential for an accident by prompting the Adaptive Cruise Control to maintain a safe following distance to another vehicle that’s directly in front. Staying within marked boundaries of a lane should be easy with some input from the Road Departure Mitigation System. The Lane Departure Warning senses the slightest deviation from an intended path on a road that has multiple lanes. Additional steering interference might be done by the Lane Keeping Assist System. This premium Honda minivan also includes the Blind Spot Information System and Cross Traffic Monitor. When backing up, you should rely on the rear camera that captures a wide-angle view with colored guide lines. Although some of the 2017 Toyota Sienna trims are available with the Pre-Collision System and Blind Spot Monitor, the Odyssey is the clear winner in active safety.
Which Van has Better Digital Technology?
An 8.0-inch touch screen with an electrostatic interface is installed in the 2018 Honda Odyssey. Generating a resolution of 720p, this premium display is paired with the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System that delivers directions on 2-D and 3-D maps. You may get additional guidance from Google Maps by syncing an Android smartphone with Android Auto. If you have an iPhone, just activate the Apple CarPlay feature. Although it supports Siri Eyes Free, the 2017 Toyota Sienna’s 7.0-inch Entune infotainment system isn’t tailored for the Android platform. This multimedia system has the Connected Navigation App, but you won’t see 3-D graphics of buildings and terrains. Whether it’s on SiriusXM Satellite Radio or HD Radio, you can enjoy plenty of great songs on the Odyssey’s 11-speaker audio system that’s rated at 550 watts. The Sienna is available with the 10 JBL speakers that are connected to these popular radio stations.
What’s the Difference in the Utility Features?
Front seats with multiple settings for heating and ventilation are standard in the 2018 Honda Odyssey Elite model. A driver’s seat with a 12-way power adjustment is designed for your daily driving needs. The seats in the second row are managed by the Magic Slide technology that facilitates entry and exit. With a single motion, you can conveniently adjust the Magic Seat in the third row. A climate control system with three zones will automatically change the temperature settings in the Odyssey. This advanced climate control unit even includes humidity control. Similarly, the 2017 Toyota Sienna has a tri-zone automatic climate control system. Both minivans come with sliding side doors that are designed with kids and pets in mind.
