2018 Chrysler Pacifica vs 2018 Honda Odyssey
In this 2018 Chrysler Pacifica vs 2018 Honda Odyssey comparison, the Chrysler minivan offers several significant advantages over its Honda rival. One category where it excels is size. While both models offer parents and children a generous seven- or eight-passenger seating capacity, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica has a slightly larger maximum cargo space. With the rear seats folded down, this model can deliver up to 140.5 cubic feet of cargo space, while the 2018 Honda Odyssey offers just 138.5 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. This means that the 2018 Pacifica has a slight advantage over the Honda model when it comes to carrying capacity.
Some attractive features that both minivans offer include Wi-Fi, rear entertainment systems, and respectable crash-test ratings. However, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica comes standard with the SafetyTec suite of safety systems while the base 2018 Honda Odyssey LX is not available at all with the Honda Sensing driver assistance advantages.

Safety and Powertrain Advantages on the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica
The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica has a lower starting MSRP than the 2018 Honda Odyssey, but it offers several powertrain advantages. The Pacifica’s standard 3.6-liter gasoline V-6 offers 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, compared to the 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 that comes on the 2018 Honda Odyssey. However, the 2018 Pacifica is also available with an attractive plug-in hybrid powertrain that offers up to 84 MPGe when driving on the highway.
Either of these models can serve as a safe and comfortable transportation option for families, thanks to easy-folding seats and many standard and available features. However, we like the confident design of the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica. Even though the 2018 Honda Odyssey was redesigned for the new model year, in our opinion it doesn't match the practical and attractive design of the Pacifica.
