If you’re in the market for a minivan, then various considerations are likely on your mind as you explore models, such as spaciousness, price, and safety features.

Space Showdown

Whatever other traits they may share, consumers who are shopping for a minivan are looking for space. Whether it be abundant seating for family members, your carpool group, or business clients, you need room for plenty of passengers.

When it comes to passenger space, the Odyssey offers seating for up to eight occupants, while the Town & Country can only accommodate seven passengers. The Odyssey also offers greater passenger volume, with 172.6 cubic feet compared to the Town & Country’s 163.5 cubic feet.

The Odyssey also features superior cargo room, offering 38.4 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the third seat, compared with only 33 cubic feet in the Town & Country, 93.1 cubic feet with the third seat folded, compared to just 83.3 cubic feet in the Town & Country and a total cargo volume of 148.5 cubic feet, compared with only 143.8 cubic feet in the Town & Country.

If you need more hauling capacity than the interior cargo space will accommodate, then the Odyssey provides 3,500 pounds of hitch-behind towing capacity, compared to just 1,600 pounds of towing capacity onboard the Town & Country.

Safety Standoff

When it comes to protection for you and your passengers, the Odyssey wins the day.

In crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the 2016 Odyssey received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score,* which is the highest rating the NHTSA gives. By contrast, the 2016 Town & Country received only 4 stars overall.

The Odyssey has also been named a 2016 TOP SAFETY PICK by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, while the Town & Country was not included on the IIHS list at all for the 2016 model year.

The Odyssey also offers safety features that are not found onboard the Town & Country, including:

  • Forward Collision Warning (standard in Odyssey EX-L, Touring, and Touring Elite trims)
