The 2014 Minivan Race Heats Up

February 10th, 2014 by

When you’re looking for a new minivan, you know that you can find the 2014 Honda Odyssey at a Mid-Missouri Honda Dealer near you, right? We stock the whole lineup of Honda vehicles, and the Odyssey minivan is without a doubt one of our most popular family vehicles.

But there are some competing models—like the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country—that might catch your attention. Who wins in the minivan race?

Honda Comes Out Ahead

If you’re looking for a minivan, there’s a good chance you have a lot of driving after you. After all, the duties of a family vehicle are many, and they often involve driving all over town pretty regularly. So you’re going to want an efficient minivan, right?

That means you want the Odyssey. The 2014 Odyssey LX with automatic transmission gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 28 highway mpg and 19 city mpg,* compared to the 25 highway mpg and 17 city mpg of the Chrysler minivan. Those are savings that add up.

And then Honda also makes their minivan state-of-the-art, offering up one of the most modern standard features packages available. Here are just a few of the amenities:

  • Bluetooth phone and audio
  • Touchscreen infotainment system (Honda’s i-MID system)
  • Rearview camera system
  • Steering wheel-mounted controls

Can you get some of these or comparable amenities on the Chrysler minivan? Sure. But to get them all, you’ll need to upgrade. The come standard on the Odyssey. Honda is the new face of “standard features.”

If you go for the top-of-the-line Odyssey, you also get something you won’t find in another minivan: the HondaVac. A built-in vacuum that helps you keep your minivan spick and span.
