2013 Honda Odyssey vs 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan South FL

Just because its one of the lowest priced minivans doesn't mean that's the only reason the Dodge Grand Caravan is the dominant player in its class. The V-6, 3.6-liter engine with its six-speed automatic transmission also gets 25 mpg on the highway and has the quality reputation that comes with being in the Dodge family. This is one of the country's favorite family vans and it still has the same star attraction it had in the 1980s when it started the minivan craze. The Grand Caravan comes with a lot of safety features, which adds to its attractiveness. Traction control, antilock brakes and stability control are just a few of them. The SXT and the Crew models also come with the big seventeen-inch wheels for even more stability.

The first Honda odyssey was introduced to Americans in 1994 and was designed with families in mind. A great deal of changes and natural evolution have taken place since then. There's a lot of cargo space and the seating is comfortable. The main thing that the Odyssey has going for it, besides all of its charm and safety features is a built-in vacuum cleaner. This feature is quite attractive to moms and business people who have the task of transporting a lot of people around. We all know that when people get together messes can occur and having a vacuum cleaner in the car is a unique and very practical idea.

The Honda Odyssey seats seven passengers and the second and third rows of seats fold away to create a pretty good-sized cargo area. Honda has also made the van a lot quieter so you can hear yourself think or actually have a conversation with one of your passengers. Rearview cameras and audio storage come with the Odyssey along with Multi-information Display and a USB port.

Space, comfort and safety are what minivans are all about. Even though the Dodge Grand Caravan started the whole thing so many years ago, it continues to be in the forefront of the minivan culture. The Caravan has been designed and improved each year with comfort, safety and space in mind. There's a 143 cubic feet of cargo space in this van and that leaves plenty of room for seating comfort and safety. The cargo area easily carries a four by eight-foot piece of plywood when the seats are down. Regarding safety, the IIHS, (Insurance Industry for Highway Safety), gave the Caravan top points for safety and performance tests.  Besides comfortable seating and ambience, the Caravan's entertainment center makes driving a pleasure. 


Both vans are pretty comfortable and have a lot of safety features, however, the Dodge Caravan has more power and the cargo space is somewhat larger.
