Honda Odyssey vs Sienna: Interior and Cargo Space

Honda OdysseyWhether shuttling the kids between after-school activities or loading up the entire family for a week-long vacation at the beach, the Odyssey and Sienna are designed to fit your busy and ever-changing day.

Boasting 158 cubic feet of total cargo volume compared to the Sienna’s 150 cubic feet, the Odyssey’s configurable One-Motion 60/40 Split 3rd-Row Magic Seat® folds flat to fit all sorts of bulky items. Need a little help climbing in back? Thanks to its Magic Slide 2nd-Row Seats™, even your taller passengers will have no difficulty stretching out over a long journey.

Honda Odyssey vs Sienna: Comfort and Convenience

When the weather turns chilly, each minivan can maintain a cozy environment from wherever you’re seated, thanks to their tri-zone automatic climate control systems. Getting out the door also is made simpler, thanks to the Odyssey’s and Sienna’s power liftgates and keyless entry systems with Push Button Start.

Those needing to keep their eyes simultaneously on the road and inside the cabin will appreciate the Odyssey’s smart features like Honda CabinWatch® with night vision along with an available Honda CabinTalk™ microphone.  By comparison, the Sienna doesn’t offer either of these features.
