Looking for a minivan that offers your family everything you need and more? Both the 2015 Honda Odyssey and the 2015 Chrysler Town and Country fit the bill. However, only one of these minivans truly stands out. At Benson Honda, we think the Odyssey takes the cake in its class. Here are some reasons why:
- The Odyssey has safety extras like daytime running lights and available collision and lane departure warning systems. The Town and Country doesn’t offer these distinguishing safety specs.
- The new Honda Odyssey was one of the few minivans named a “Top Safety Pick Plus” by the IIHS. The Town and Country did not earn this title.
- The new Honda Odyssey boasts an available in-vehicle vacuum for its Touring trim level. The Town and Country doesn’t offer this super handy feature.
- Consumer Reports predicts that the 2015 Odyssey will be 31% more reliable than the 2015 Town and Country.
- Motor Trend found that the new Odyssey accelerated faster than the new Town and Country in speed tests.
- The Odyssey’s larger tires give it better traction than the Town and Country.
- The Odyssey’s 18-inch wheels also give it an edge in terms of handling in comparison to the Town and Country’s 17-inch wheels.
- Fully independent suspensions and speed sensitive power steering also enhance handling in the Odyssey. Without these features, the Town and Country may be more difficult to maneuver.
- The Odyssey seats 8 passengers, while the Town and Country only seats 7.
- Computer-generated active noise cancellation keeps the Odyssey quieter than the Town and Country, which doesn’t have this feature.
- According to Kiplinger’s, the Odyssey offers a superior resale value to the Town and Country. And Intellichoice estimates the Odyssey’s five-year ownership costs are less than the Town and Country’s.
