Shopping for your family's next car here in Fairfield, CT? See how our new Chrysler Pacifica stacks up against the Honda Odyssey!

If you're in the market for a new minivan, you know that there's a myriad of different options out there. However, while we might be a bit biased, we here at Scap Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram firmly believe that the new Chrysler Pacifica is one of the most compelling options on the market today. With its upscale style, cavernous interior space, over 100 different safety and security features, and even a few helpful bits of in-car tech that are sure to make your daily drives markedly more enjoyable, the new Chrysler Pacifica easily stands out from the crowd.

Now, if you're a savvy shopper, and we know you are, you're likely doing your due diligence and researching other minivan models to compare to the new Chrysler Pacifica. Fortunately, we've done that for you. In fact, we've put together a competitive analysis to show you how the new Chrysler Pacifica compares to a close segment competitor, the new Honda Odyssey.

Pricing

For those with growing families here in Connecticut, saving money is always important, especially when it comes to your next car. Fortunately, when it comes to saving you money, it's hard to beat the value of the new Chrysler Pacifica. Coming in at a competitive MSRP of $28,995, the new Chrysler Pacifica makes a smart bet for budget-conscious families here in Connecticut.

 

By comparison, the Honda Odyssey is significantly pricier, clocking in at a starting MSRP of $29,990. And while that may not break the bank, we think you'll find that when you compare these two minivans, you'll see that with the Honda Odyssey, you're often paying more and getting less.

Size and Capacity

Both the Chrysler Pacifica and the Honda Odyssey are spacious on the inside, accommodating up to eight passengers. And while the Chrysler Pacifica does offer a bit more overall passenger room, the real difference between these two minivans is in ow they utilize their interior space. The Chrysler Pacifica features an innovative Stow n' Go® seating and storage system that makes it easy to make the most of all the space the new Chrylser Pacifica has to offer. The second row seats easily fold down into the underfloor compartments, opening up ample space for extra cargo and providing easy access to the third row. And with all seats upright, those underfloor storage compartments make for great place to store small items.

As for the Honda Odyssey, it may be similar in size, but it lacks a comparable system to the Stow n' Go® seating offered by the Chrysler Pacifica. That means if you want a little extra room for cargo, you'll have to make room in your garage, because you're going to have to actually remove the seats to get it.

Features

When it comes to the minivan segment, it's all about the available features. As we mentioned before, the Chrysler Pacifica comes available with over 100 different safety and security features, some of which even helped it to earn the highly prized IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Award in 2017. Now, the Honda Odyssey also has some safety tech, but it only earned the less prestigious Top Safety Pick award in 2016.

Safety features aside, you'll find that both the Chrysler Pacifica are packed with smart features ranging from an intuitive infotainment systems to available integrated vacuum cleaners. However, perhaps one of the best features of the new Chrysler Pacifica is its available UConnect® Theater system, which features two crisp 10.1-inch HD touchscreens mounted to the back of the front seats. Offering a Blu-Ray player, dual HDMI inputs, wireless headphones, Bluetooth remotes, and even downloadable games and apps, the UConnect® Theater system on the new Chrysler Pacifica makes it only too easy to keep your kids occupied on longer drives. As for the Honda Odyssey, it also features an available rear-seat entertainment system, but it only has one screen mounted to the ceiling, meaning if one of your children wants to watch cartoons and the other has their heart set on a movie, there's going to be a bit more friction on your family road trip.
