Odyssey vs. Pacifica: Which Minivan Is Better?

Minivans are a great way to get a bunch of people, plus a lot of luggage, from one place to another. And among modern minivans, two of the best are the 2021 Honda Odyssey and 2021 Chrysler Pacifica

So, now’s the time to drop minivan preconceptions about wood-paneled exteriors, peanut butter-smudged seats, and juice boxes strewn all over the floor. 

In fact, the Odyssey and Pacifica boast a number of features unavailable on a vast majority of popular sport-utility vehicles. Would you like rear seats that fold completely out of the way? Or, how about a built-in vacuum to make the cabin spotless after a Cheerio and potato chip-fueled road trip? One of these two minivans even offers optional all-wheel drive – you’ll have to keep reading to find out which one it is.

While they’re more than a match for today’s most popular compact and midsize SUVs, which of these minivans pulls ahead of the other? We’ve broken things down into key categories, based on everything from safety scores and seat comfort, to predicted reliability, fuel economy, and towing capability. In the end, a clear winner emerged, though this minivan battle was closely fought.
