2014 Honda Odyssey LX

Though many Chicago-area drivers are switching to SUVs and crossovers for family vehicles, the minivan still reigns supreme, and we think the 2014 Honda Odyssey is the leader of the pack. Available now at Community Honda in Orland Park, IL, the Odyssey not only features seating for the whole family with plenty of storage space, but also has some of the best standard features in its class. Models with forward collision warning systems are the only minivans on the road that have earned the Top Safety Pick+ designation from the IIHS too.

But there is no shortage of minivans these days; how does the 2014 Nissan Quest stand up to the Odyssey LX?

A Fuel Efficient Minivan!

There were days when drivers had to simply resign themselves to their minivans being gas guzzlers, but those days are long gone thanks in no small part to Honda engineering.

Drivers of the Odyssey LX with its 3.5L V6 engine and automatic transmission can enjoy an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway,* while the Quest is only capable of 25 highway mpg. That’s a difference that will add up as you pile the miles on.

Keep the Family Entertained

One of the toughest parts of shopping for a family vehicle used to be finding one that could easily take care of entertaining the family while you’re on the road. Honda makes that simple with their new suite of standard features:

  • Built-in rearview camera
  • Steering wheel-mounted controls
  • Honda’s i-MID infotainment system with touchscreen interface
  • Bluetooth connectivity for phone and streaming audio
  • Pandora internet radio

The Quest does offer features like a rearview camera and Bluetooth at higher trim levels, but drivers would have to at an increased cost.

When drivers upgrade the Odyssey, they get real upgrades, like the built-in HondaVac vacuum cleaner found at the Touring Elite trim level.
