There is no shortage of options when it comes to a new family vehicle, but we know that many of our Albany drivers still prefer minivans over family sedans or SUVs. One popular choice is the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country LX, but its standard features fall short of some of its competitors, like the affordably-priced 2016 Honda Odyssey LX.
We compared some key features and specs so that you can decide which one of these minivans is the right one for your family.
How the Features Stack U
The 2016 Honda Odyssey LX has a lower price than the 2016 Chrysler Town & Country LX, yet its standard features package looks a bit more impressive. The Odyssey LX comes with the following features you won’t find on the Town & Country LX:
- Power-adjustable driver’s seat

- Second- and third-row head restraints
When it comes to passenger and cargo space, Honda’s minivan leads the Chrysler as well:
- 2016 Chrysler Town & Country LX models only have 33.0 cubic feet of cargo room that can expand to 143.8 cubic feet. Passengers will have a total of 162.8 cubic feet of space.
- 2016 Honda Odyssey LX models, on the other hand, feature a standard 38.4 cubic feet of cargo space that can expand to 148.5 cubic feet. Passenger room comes in at 172.6 cubic feet for more overall room than the Chrysler.
