2019 Honda Odyssey Trunk Cargo Space

The 2019 Honda Odyssey and the 2019 Toyota Sienna are both remarkable minivans for families at all stages. But which one is the better buy? To find out, we compare the top-tier trims of both vehicles—the Odyssey Elite and the Sienna Limited Premium. With a lower price, higher residual value, better safety scores, and a more spacious cabin, it’s clear the Odyssey outshines the Sienna. It’s no wonder U.S. News and World Report calls the Odyssey an “excellent minivan.”


The Odyssey Elite is the more affordable choice of the two minivans with an MSRP of $46,970*. To compare, the Sienna Limited Premium will reach up to $47,355. Comparably equipped, the Odyssey still comes at a great price at just $47,765* while the Sienna will cost up to $48,530.

Residual Value

For drivers who will want to lease or trade in their minivan one day, the Odyssey retains more of its value longer with 45% residual value after 36 months and 33% after 60 months. On the other hand, the Sienna will loose its value more quickly with just 40% residual value after 36 months. And after 60 months, the Sienna will only have 30% residual value.


Safety is important in any vehicle, but especially in a minivan to give drivers greater peace of mind as they transport their families on the road. The Odyssey earns the top scores from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)**, earning 5 stars for Front Passenger Crash Test and the Overall Frontal Crash Safety Rating. In those same categories, the Sienna fell short, earning just 4 stars.


The Odyssey also offers a more spacious cabin, with more head and leg room in the rear rows. Even tall adults will have plenty of space to sit more comfortably than in the Sienna, which is more cramped in the rear rows.

  • Odyssey – 39.2 inches in the 2nd row. 38.3 inches in the 3rd row.
  • Sienna – 38 inches in the 2nd row. 35.9 inches in the 3rd row.


  • Odyssey – 40.9 inches in the 1st row. 40.9 inches in the 2nd row. 38.1 inches in the 3rd row.
