2023 Toyota Sienna vs. Honda Odyssey

Comparison

The Toyota Sienna and the Honda Odyssey are great minivans, but the Toyota Sienna provides some unique options. Available in all-wheel drive, the Sienna minivan offers exceptional handling and cutting-edge technology to keep passengers connected and entertained. A spacious interior and customizable seats provide a convenient and comfortable experience, making it an ideal family car. Similarly, a handsome exterior, modern safety, and comfort features make the Toyota Sienna a compelling offering in this vehicle segment. 

 

The Toyota Sienna bears a name that’s almost as beloved as the Camry. Toyota celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Sienna nameplate with the inclusion of a limited edition trim, of which only 2,525 units will be produced for the U.S. The hybrid-only Toyota Sienna is a statement made of metal and shows that minivans don’t have to look and feel bland. The Sienna is Toyota’s only minivan, but with such a compelling package, it’s likely the only one you need.

 

The Odyssey was Honda’s first minivan, and it used the Accord platform to deliver a fun but refined ride. Its fifth generation has come a long way in refinements and improvements. With a beefy V6 engine, modern safety and comfort technologies, and a removable 2nd row, the Honda Odyssey is a well-built minivan that deserves respect as a worthy contender.

Conclusion

Are you still wondering which to pick: Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna? While both the Sienna and Odyssey are compelling minivan offerings, the Toyota Sienna has a hybrid drivetrain and available all-wheel drive, which the Odyssey does not. A brawny exterior design, a slew of comfort and safety features, and superior fuel economy ratings make the Sienna a prime choice among family haulers and a tough competitor in this head-to-head comparison between the 2023 Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna. 

  • The Sienna base model has a lower MSRP than its Honda Odyssey equivalent. The entry-level Toyota Sienna LE starts at $36,885 MSRP, while the Odyssey’s entry-level trim has a baseline MSRP of $37,490.
  • The top-of-the-line Toyota Sienna Platinum trim also comes with more standard luxury features than its Honda Odyssey equivalent. Its second row comes standard with premium leather-trimmed captain’s seats. It also comes equipped with a Panoramic View Monitor with a 360-degree Overhead View and a 12-speaker JBL® audio system. The Sienna also comes with a four-zone climate control system for an extra cozy cabin — all of which are features absent from the Honda Odyssey.
  • The Toyota Sienna has significantly superior fuel economy ratings compared to the Honda Odyssey. On FWD configurations, the Sienna has EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 36 mpg across the board. In comparison, the Honda Odyssey has an estimated rating of 19 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg combined. The Toyota Sienna also bears a Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) rating, marking it vastly more eco-conscious than conventional gas-powered minivans like the Honda Odyssey.
  • All Toyota Sienna trims are available in an electric on-demand AWD configuration, allowing the hybrid minivan to handle various road conditions through superior traction and power distribution. None of the Honda Odyssey trims, even its top trims, offer AWD. The Toyota Sienna also comes equipped with ECVT, which provides a refined ride and enhances fuel economy compared to a conventional automatic transmission by ensuring peak engine performance across all speeds through precise gear ratio adjustments.
  • Every new Toyota Sienna comes equipped with standard safety features such as Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 and Toyota’s Star Safety System™, as well as a 1-year trial to Safety Connect®. While the Odyssey offers similar safety features, HondaLink® Subscription services are available only on the Touring and Elite trims.
