You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

The Toyota Sienna is the biggest rival to the Odyssey. It has Toyota's popular six-speed automatic transmission and 3.5-liter V6 that provides smooth power and good fuel efficiency. The Sienna is also available with all-wheel-drive, a class-exclusive. The Sienna loses the fuel economy race to the Odyssey, though, and many of its options are bundled into expensive packages. The Chrysler Town & Country and the similar Dodge Grand Caravan are the only minivans to offer Stow 'n Go, the feature that allows both the second and third-row seats to fold into the floor. The Chrysler Group minivans therefore win the versatility race. They also have available DVD screens for the second and third row and are available with technology like cross-path detection. Where both fall down is in build quality, which isn't as good as the rest of the class. And they both restrict maximum seating capacity to 7, instead of 8 like in the Odyssey and Sienna. Some luxury features are not available on the Grand Caravan and Town & Country gets expensive when loaded up with options.

While the minivan bench might not be that deep, as major automakers GM and Ford have been out of the game for several years, the Odyssey is one of the strongest forces of the segment. All versions come well-equipped with safety and comfort features, and there are child seat connection points in both second and third rows, something many crossovers do not have. EX and higher get 8-passenger seating and power sliding doors to make packing passengers in easier. And high-end Touring and Touring Elite models have luxury car-grade features to keep drivers happy. This is all of what puts the Odyssey in contention for best-in-class honors year after year.
