Is your growing family in need of more space for your daily travels around Turlock, CA? If you're in the current market for a new minivan model, there are tons to pick from on today's auto market, but few can compare to the long-lasting and agile performance and comfort of the new Toyota Sienna. But how does this new minivan compare to one of its top competitors, the Honda Odyssey? If you're prepared to move the family into a new minivan, here's why choosing the Toyota Sienna works in your favor.


If you're searching for strength and horsepower for the California hills and highways, the Toyota Sienna offers the standard 3.5-Liter V6 engine with the Direct Shift eight-speed automatic transmission, which makes for responsive gear exchanges and control beneath 296-horsepower. The Honda Odyssey has a smaller engine, the 280-horsepower V6 engine.


For the family who is seeking more space and comfort for their road trips to Disney Land or the weekly errand and grocery runs, the Toyota Sienna offers leather-trimmed seating for all eight passengers, whereas the Honda minivan only offers seating space for up to seven. Looking for a van that holds massive capability and practicality when it comes to moving larger items with your car? The Toyota Sienna offers a max 150 cubic feet of cargo interior with all seats folded forward; the Honda Odyssey only gives a total of 144 cubic feet which may be tight when bringing home larger items.


When it comes to standard safety, the Toyota Sienna model's base trim comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense P which gives drivers the utmost peace of mind on the roads and highways with innovative driver-assist features like the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beams, and the Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. Features such as these are only available in the upper trim options of the new Honda Odyssey.


Whether you're traveling locally in Turlock or gearing up for your next California road trip, the Toyota Sienna prepares drivers with all the essential tech they could ask for on the roads. The Sienna gives drivers a larger seven-inch touchscreen with up to five USB charging ports. The Honda Odyssey comes standard with a five-inch touchscreen and gives you and your family a mere one center console USB port, and two in the second-row, which may not cut it for the family multimedia charging needs while on the go.

Also, at a standard level, the Toyota Sienna gives you Amazon Alexa compatibility, Apple CarPlay, and Siri Eyes Free along with the Scout GPS Link that connects you easily to your next unknown route or destination. At a standard trim level, the Honda doesn't offer either but does have a Bluetooth handsfreelink®.
