South Jordan, Draper, and Salt Lake City families in the market for a minivan have probably already encountered the 2016 Toyota Sienna: with its phenomenal engine power, ample interior space, array of tech devices, and range of safety systems, it’s hard to miss. However, it is possible that you haven’t yet concluded that it’s the right minivan for you because you’re still holding out for a better alternative. So let us tell it to you straight: the 2016 Toyota Sienna is not simply a strong choice among many minivans—it’s the only choice. And once you realize that this vehicle leads the pack in terms of power, performance, dimensions, technology, and safety, we think you’ll agree. But just to be sure, let’s compare the 2016 Toyota Sienna to one of its arch-competitors, the 2016 Honda Odyssey. A formidable van, to be sure, the Odyssey is simply no match for the Sienna. Let’s see why.

 

Engine Force

First, there’s the question of engine power. Or, rather, the fact: the 2016 Toyota Sienna simply has more of it.

  • The 2016 Toyota Sienna – The base-line Sienna trim runs on a 3.5L DOHC 24-Valve with Dual VVT-i engine that gets 266 hp while also gathering 245 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, it features a Toyota Direct Ignition system, and a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission for superior handling. But in addition to all its power, the Sienna is remarkably efficient: it gets 18 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway, while also earning a title as an Ultra Low Emission Vehicle II.
  • The 2016 Honda Odyssey – Sure, the Odyssey is a powerful minivan: it features an aluminum alloy V-6 engine with Multiple-Point Fuel Injection and a 6-Speed Automatic Transmission, but it only generates 248 hp and gathers 250 lb-ft of torque.

Interior Space

Second, the 2016 Toyota Sienna gives South Jordan, Draper, and Salt Lake City drivers ample space, but it also ensures that they’re comfortable:

  • The 2016 Toyota Sienna – The Sienna features seating for 8 passengers, as well as generous room for cargo: 150 cubic feet behind the front seats, 87 behind the second row, and 39.1 cubic feet behind the third row. At the same time, it keeps passengers and driver comfortable no matter the season, with three-zone automatic climate control with air filter. Not only that, but it seats everyone in the lap of luxury, with leather-trimmed and heated front seats, an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and premium leatherette-trimmed 60/40 split 3rd row seats to ensure versatility.
  • The 2016 Honda Odyssey – The 2016 Honda Odyssey also provides seating for 8, and its multi-function 2nd-row center seat gives you some flexibility when it comes to deciding whether to use interior space for cargo or passenger seating. However, the Odyssey gives a smidgen less total cargo volume—148.5 cubic feet—than the Sienna, and, while it offers a comfortable and well-accoutered interior, it doesn’t offer precisely the same amenities as the Toyota.

Sophisticated Technologies

And the same story goes for smart technologies. The Toyota Sienna comes fully equipped with a huge range of exciting tech-systems to keep passengers and drivers informed, entertained, and engaged.

  • The 2016 Toyota Sienna – Entune App Suite gives drivers Salt Lake City, Draper, and South Jordan a selection of apps, including OpenTable, Pandora, iHeartRadio, MovieTickets.com, making it possible to finish planning out your evening while you’re already en route. Likewise, a 4.2 inch Multi-Information Display system keeps you abreast of important information, like gas levels, fuel efficiency, and destination locations. And the Sienna’s Predictive Traffic system ensures that you’ll have complete information about the traffic situation in the Salt Lake City area.
  • The 2016 Honda Odyssey – The Odyssey also offers an Intelligent Multi-Information Display console, allowing you to receive calls, locate information, and operate many features of your car. But at 8-inches, it seems a bit unwieldy in size. And while the Odyssey gives you HondaLink service, it does not offer Entune or the Sienna’s particular Predictive Traffic system.

Rock-Solid Safety

Finally, the Sienna also beats the Odyssey when it comes to safety, offering a range of powerful new systems to keep everyone protected while driving in the Salt Lake City, Draper, and South Jordan areas.

  • The 2016 Toyota Sienna – Here’s just a partial list of of what the Sienna has to offer:

    • Toyota’s Star Safety System, with Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-Lock Brakes, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, and Smart Stop Technology;
    • a Safety Connect System, with Emergency Assistance, a Stolen Vehicle Locator, Roadside Assistance, and Automatic Collision Notification;
    • a collection of airbags (for example, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, driver and front passenger knee airbags, rear seat-mounted side airbags, and front and rear side curtain airbags);
    • and a Pre-Collision System.
  • The 2016 Honda Odyssey – The 2016 Honda Odyssey gives you a Rearview Camera, Forward Collision Warning, a Lane Departure Warning System, and Electronic Brake Distribution, but it doesn’t offer the Star Safety System or the Safety Connect System.
