You want the best for your family, so when it’s time to shop for a new passenger van, you’ll want to compare the convenience, safety, and technology options available in your top picks. At Burns Honda, we want to make the decision-making process quick and easy for families in Marlton, Mt. Laurel, and Cherry Hill. That’s why we’ve put together this comparison of the 2019 Honda Odyssey vs. Chrysler Pacifica for you.
Between rehearsals, family vacations, home improvement projects, and back-to-school shopping, your family has a lot going on—and you need enough space to accommodate all your activities. The 2019 Honda Odyssey provides more cargo space, with up to 158 cubic feet behind the first-row seat. The Chrysler Pacifica, on the other hand, only offers a maximum of 140.5 cubic feet of cargo space. Even when all the seats are in use, the Odyssey still wins, with up to 38.6 cubic feet of space behind the third-row seats, compared to 32.3 cubic feet in the Chrysler.
Honda also offers innovative Magic Slide 2nd-Row Seats™, making it easier for you to configure the second row to your specific needs. Slide a second-row seat closer to the door to buckle in a child seat, or slide it forward so you can reach it from the front row.
Both passenger vans offer a suite of driver-assistive technologies to monitor the road, such as Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning. But what about things happening inside the car? The 2019 Honda Odyssey has an available CabinWatch™ Rear Seat Monitor to help you keep an eye on the rear seats from the convenience of the display audio touchscreen—even in the dark, thanks to a night vision mode. The additional CabinTalk™ in-car PA system even makes it easier to talk to them, using the rear headphones or speakers when properly equipped.
While both the Odyssey and the Pacifica were awarded the 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK rating1from IIHS, the Odyssey received a crashworthiness score of “GOOD,” in each category. Additionally, the child seat anchors (LATCH) in the 2019 Honda Odyssey proved to be easier to use than the system in the Chrysler Pacifica.
The Honda Odyssey and Chrysler Pacifica both offer plenty of options to keep everyone entertained on longer trips, including available rear entertainment systems as well as a multitude of connectivity options for music, radio, and audiobooks. The 2019 Honda Odyssey has 50-plus technology features, including a Qi- and Powermat-compatible wireless phone charger so you can conveniently recharge your mobile phone without having to plug it in. The Pacifica doesn't come with this wireless charging option.
Plus, in the Odyssey, there’s no more arguing over what music to play: Everyone in the car can add their favorite song to the available CabinControl™ Social Playlist from their mobile device.
