Albany drivers have a few different family vehicle options available to them, with minivans still among the most popular choices available. Before driving home a 2016 Chrysler Town & Country LX for its price though, we recommend you compare it to what the 2016 Honda Odyssey LX has to offer so that you can be sure to have the minivan that best fits your family.
We have a breakdown of just a few of the differences between these two popular minivans to help make your decision easier.
Save in a Honda
There are two easy ways to think about savings when buying a new vehicle: short-term and long-term. In the short-term, the easiest way to save is to buy a minivan with a lower price:
- The entry-level 2016 Chrysler Town & Country LX has a starting price of $29,995.
- Honda’s new minivan, the 2016 Odyssey LX, includes features you won’t find on the base Town & Country, and it has a price of just $29,275 (MSRP).*
For long-term savings, you should look to the fuel economy and warranty. While both minivans have a 36-month/36,000-mile basic warranty and a 60-month/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, Honda leads on fuel economy:
- The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country LX earns just 25 highway and 17 city mpg for 20 mpg combined.
- The 2016 Honda Odyssey LX is rated at an EPA-estimated 28 highway and 19 city mpg for 22 mpg combined.**
The Features Advantage
Despite its lower price, the 2016 Honda Odyssey actually bests the Town & Country LX on standard features, including a power-adjustable driver’s seat, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and second- and third-row head restraints.
Honda’s minivan also comes out ahead on passenger and cargo room:
- The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country LX has 33.0 cubic feet of cargo space (expandable to 143.8 cubic feet) with 162.8 cubic feet of passenger room.
- The 2016 Honda Odyssey LX has a standard 38.4 cubic feet of cargo room (expandable to 148.5 cubic feet) and 172.6 cubic feet of passenger space.
