The stylish and redesigned 2018 Honda Odyssey has arrived, featuring an aerodynamic design, new cabin features and higher fuel economy ratings than before. Honda's latest version of its popular minivan is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine with a choice of two available transmissions, a 9-speed and 10-speed automatic. The 2018 Honda Odyssey offers an array of technology features for riders through its advanced display audio system. Plus, there is available built-in 4G LTE Wifi on upgraded models, allowing passengers to stay connected and even control some Odyssey settings from their smartphones.
One of the Odyssey's competitors is the 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan, which has been fitted with a 3.6-liter V6 engine, plus an automatic transmission with fewer gears than the Odyssey's available 10-speed. The Grand Caravan's last redesign was in 2011, meaning the overall design of the Grand Caravan will feel outdated to passengers -- especially when compared to the fresh 2018 Odyssey. The 2018 Grand Caravan comes with common standard safety features such as ABS brakes and airbags, but this minivan is about transporting passengers at an affordable price by sacrificing some comfort and features. The basic trim level comes with climate control, Stow 'n' Go seating and other convenience features similar to that of the 2018 Honda Odyssey.
Safety matters, and that is never truer than in a family-hauling minivan. The 2018 Honda Odyssey impresses with its 5-Star Ratings in the NHTSA Front Driver Crash Test, Front Passenger Crash Test and Overall Frontal Crash Safety Rating. In contrast, Dodge's 2018 Grand Caravan managed only 4-Star Ratings in the same safety and crash tests. For 5-Star safety in your family's new ride, choose the 2018 Odyssey!
The 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan ultimately has less seating compared to the Honda's 2018 Odyssey, as it offers seven seats with two inches less legroom compared to the Odyssey's seating for eight. Even with its Stow 'n' Go seating, the 2018 Grand Caravan only manages a maximum cargo capacity of 140.3 cubic feet versus the Odyssey's 144.9 cubic feet. For a minivan that is as good at hauling cargo as it is transporting family and friends, choose the 2018 Honda Odyssey.
