More Integrated Technology
The 2020 Honda Odyssey Elite has a responsive 8-inch touchscreen with an intuitive and clean UI to control the integrated Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Voice controls are similarly intuitive, meaning you don’t have to take your eyes off the road to control the infotainment system. The 2020 Honda Odyssey Elite also has a 550-Watt, 11-speaker premium audio system with multi-zone audio capability. The 2020 Toyota Sienna is ancient by comparison. The Toyota infotainment system is outdated and clunky, with awful animations and painfully slow operating speeds. It also has no Android Auto™ capability, so non-Apple users will be stuck without a dedicated interface for their devices.
Excellent Ride Quality
The 2020 Honda Odyssey Elite will surprise you. Despite being a minivan, it’s quite nimble, thanks to the strong 3.5-liter V6 and a refined 10-speed automatic transmission. The transmission doesn’t have to hunt for gears. It up and downshifts at appropriate times without fuss. The suspension handles bumpy roads well. The same can’t be said of the 2020 Toyota Sienna. While the Sienna isn’t atrocious, it’s not nearly as refined as the 2020 Honda Odyssey is. In particular, the 8-speed transmission in the 2020 Sienna is reluctant to downshift, making for some seriously lackluster acceleration in highway situations. Sienna owners have also reported engine issues at colder temperatures.
