2018 Honda Odyssey vs 2018 Chrysler Pacifica
Having trouble finding a van that can keep up with your family? It can be hard deciding on a vehicle that will make driving with children easier and more convenient. So, to help you figure out which van you want, we compared two popular options: the 2018 Honda Odyssey and the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica.
Now, both vans offer plenty of accommodations that allow you to have more control while driving, better handling and even the availability to tow a small trailer. However, there are some differences between the two vehicles that can make the driving experience more functional. For instance, looking at the chart below where we have the base trim levels indicated, you can see that the Odyssey stands out compared to the Pacifica. Having plenty of storage room and more control of the interior climate can be very advantageous when going on a trip with the family.

Despite those differences, the Odyssey and Pacifica do offer similar safety technologies, fuel efficiency, passenger space and comfort features. These standard amenities include two 12-volt DC power outlets, Bluetooth® compatibility, tire pressure monitoring system, an auxiliary port and an in-wall vacuum on higher trim levels. Though, when looking at the higher trim levels, like the Odyssey Elite and the Pacifica Limited, there are more noticeable differences. For example, the 2018 Odyssey Elite, unlike the Pacifica Limited, features standard Adaptive Cruise Control, power sliding side doors, seating for 8, extra power outlets and second-row 40/20/40 split folding, reclining, removable bench seats.
Overall, the 2018 Honda Odyssey is able to offer more accommodations and versatility to families compared to the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica.
