2014 Honda Odyssey

While crossover SUVs are becoming an increasingly popular choice for families looking for a versatile, spacious new automobile, the classic minivan is still the king of family vehicles. On minivans like the newly updated 2014 Honda Odyssey, you’ll find a variety of family-friendly features that make every trip a little bit easier. Plus, minivans like the Odyssey offer more passenger and cargo space than just about every other type of car on the road. If you’re in the market for a minivan in the Orland Park area, you may have heard about the Town & Country, a minivan made by Chrysler. But how does the Town & Country compare to the Honda Odyssey?

Top Safety Scores

When it comes to choosing a good family car, safety should be a top priority. In this category, the Honda Odyssey is the clear choice, receiving a perfect five-star score from the NHTSA, as well as high scores from the IIHS in a variety of tests. The Town & Country on the other hand, only earned four stars out of five from the NHTSA due to relative weak performance in frontal impact tests. The Odyssey’s forward collision and lane departure warning systems are also not available on the Town & Country.

A Smooth, Serene Ride

Behind the wheel of the Honda Odyssey, you can tell the engineers worked hard to make the ride as quiet and calm as possible. Road and wind noise are all but silenced, as the Odyssey glides over rough roads with ease. On the other hand, reviewers have noted that the Town & Country is lacking in both suspension quality and sound insulation, with the engine being particularly harsh and loud during acceleration.
