How does the Honda Odyssey compare to the new Chrysler Pacifica?
The Chrysler Pacifica may be a new model in the minivan market, but the Honda Odyssey LX is still a solid machine that beats the Pacifica LX in a few key metrics. The first thing you have to consider is people. The minivan was created to get as many people as possible as efficiently as possible from point A to point B. Here both models feature seating for seven, but the amount of room provided tells a different story.
The Odyssey LX provides over 8 cubic-feet more interior room for passengers, and somehow it does this while being both slightly shorter and slightly narrower than the Pacifica LX. Not only does the Odyssey LX have more interior room overall, it also provides more shoulder room in the front, and more legroom in the back, giving you and your passengers more room to stretch out and relax.
Speaking of more room, not only does the Odyssey LX have more room for passengers than the Pacifica LX, but it also has more room for cargo by 8 cubic-feet. Let’s face it, though a minivan is built for moving your family, it will also be need to handle its fair share of cargo. On that front, it’s good to know that you will have the impressive space of the Odyssey.
We’ve established that the Odyssey LX is more spacious, but it is also more maneuverable too. When it comes to a turning diameter, the Odyssey LX manages a surprisingly tight 36.7 feet. On the flip side of that, the Pacifica LX cuts a much wider arc at 39.7 feet, making it much harder to maneuver especially in tight parking situations.
