2015 Honda OdysseyAre you searching for a new practical family hauler here in Frankfort or Orland Park, IL? Don’t bother with a crossover when you know that you can find more seating, comfort, and valuable cargo space in a minivan. In fact, two leading minivans on the market today include the 2015 Honda Odyssey and the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country. While both offer many advantages, they also differ in some important ways. Let’s take a closer look to find out which one is for you!

Safety

When looking for a new vehicle, most families count safety among their top priorities. So, how do these two family haulers compare? According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the 2015 Honda Odyssey comes out ahead with a five-star overall rating, earning five stars in the front driver crash, front passenger crash, and overall frontal crash test safety. The 2015 Chrysler Town & Country only received four stars in all of those categories.

What’s more, the Odyssey comes out ahead with top ratings by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, while the Town & Country falls short, garnering a ‘Poor’ rating in the small front overlap crash test for it’s lack of front crash prevention.

Efficiency

The second priority most minivan buyers probably consider is fuel economy. The 2015 Honda Odyssey with automatic transmission is rated by the EPA at an impressive 19 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg combined*. The automatic 2015 Chrysler Town & Country is stuck at 17 mpg city, 25 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined. To top it off, the Odyssey also offers a larger gas tank.
