Most American drivers seeking a new minivan only need to compare 2019 Honda Odyssey vs. 2019 Toyota Sienna. These two industry-leading models sit right at the front of the segment, so we decided to compare their two upper-level trims: Honda Odyssey Elite and Toyota Sienna Limited Premium.

The Toyota Sienna price comes in at $47,530 vs. a Honda Odyssey price of $46,970*, but does it provide added value to match a higher price?

Safety

Safety will always be a major factor for minivan drivers, so even small differences in crash-test scores and safety technology will feel significant.

Only the Honda Odyssey achieved:

  • 5-stars for NHTSA** Overall Front Star Rating and Front Passenger Side.

The Honda Odyssey is also the only model of the two with a Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM).

Cargo Space

Both the Toyota Sienna and the Honda Odyssey can carry plenty of cargo, but the Honda still manages to pull ahead:

  • Cargo Space Behind the 2nd Row: Up to 92 cubic feet in the Honda vs. just 87.1 in the Toyota.
  • Cargo Space Behind the 1st Row: Up to 158 cubic feet in the Honda vs. just 150 in the Toyota.

That’s enough room to lay a stack of 4-by-8 plywood sheets when the Honda Odyssey’s seats are folded. It even provides more legroom for added comfort:

  • 1st Row Legroom: Up to 40.9 inches in the Honda vs. 40.5 in the Toyota.
  • 2nd Row Legroom: Up to 40.9 inches in the Honda vs. 37.6 in the Toyota.
  • 3rd Row Legroom: Up to 38.1 inches in the Honda vs. 36.3 in the Toyota.
