The 2014 Honda Odyssey vs. the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country
Easton drivers know to visit Silko Honda in Raynham for the latest in Honda vehicles, and that includes the 2014 Honda Odyssey. Available now along with the rest of the current Honda lineup, the Odyssey can seat up to eight people. The minivan features versatile seating and storage space, making it an amazing choice for a new family vehicle.
The minivan market is highly competitive, though. Is there anything a vehicle like the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country has to offer that could put it ahead of the Odyssey? Let’s take a look.
Save Behind the Wheel of an Odyssey
When you choose the Odyssey LX, you’re looking at a price of $28,825 (MSRP), but drivers of the Town & Country pay $30,765 (MSRP). That’s a savings of almost $2,000 for the Honda vehicle.
The savings don’t stop there, either. The 2014 Odyssey LX with automatic transmission gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg on the highway* compared to the Chrysler’s 25 highway mpg. That’s just more and more savings.
Choosing Honda Means More Features
Not only is the Odyssey less expensive and more efficient, but you simply get more when you choose the Honda minivan. Here are some standard features on the entry-level Odyssey:
- Bluetooth phone and audio streaming
- Touchscreen infotainment system
- Steering wheel-mounted controls
- Rearview camera system
Can you get some of these features on the basic Town & Country? Of course. But if you want them all, you’re going to have to upgrade a minivan that already costs more than the Odyssey.
And if you upgrade both vehicles to their top level trims? Well, again, they are some of the most competitively equipped minivans on the market today, and yet the Odyssey still comes out ahead because it’s the only minivan on the market that has an available vacuum cleaner. The HondaVac is found on the Touring Elite trim of the 2014 Odyssey and nowhere else. The choice looks clear to us.
