What Are the Main Differences Between the Chrysler Pacifica and Honda Odyssey?
As the minivan tug-o-war rages on, we're left at another draw for fuel economy. Both minivans tie with up to 28 mpg on the highway, putting them among the most efficient options in the segment. But for those seeking the most return in efficiency, we recommend the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid. The only plug-in minivan on the market to date, the Pacifica Hybrid can travel up to 32 miles on battery power alone and assures a combined driving range of well over 500 miles.
You may notice some defining differences inside the cabin as well. The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica has standard second- and third-row Stow ‘n Go™ seats, which conveniently fold flat into the cabin floor. This makes clearing out some extra cargo space quick and hassle-free. When not in use, the Stow 'n Go compartments double for small-item storage. In the 2020 Honda Odyssey, the third-row bench flips back and folds flat into the rear cargo floor, but the second-row seats must be manually removed to clear the cabin completely.
Both clearly designed with families in mind, the Chrysler Pacifica and the Honda Odyssey are available with their own backseat entertainment systems, but the Pacifica's superior setup can be had with two screens. The Odyssey’s entertainment system is limited to just one. And as a bonus, the Pacifica’s UConnect Theater comes loaded with apps and games to keep the peace on long drives.
The results show the Chrysler Pacifica is the minivan to have for 2020. But don’t take our word for it! Stop by our Fury Motors dealership in St. Paul, MN and explore the feature highlights for yourself.
