2016 Honda Odyssey vs 2016 Ford Transit Connect Wagon
There have been rumors that the Odyssey will enter its fifth generation for the 2017 model year, but even if those rumors become reality the finally version of the minivan’s fourth generation still makes an excellent option for any growing family. We thought we’d take a closer look at our favorite minivan and see how it measures up to one of the few other vans that we haven’t yet pit it against, by comparing the 2016 Honda Odyssey vs 2016 Ford Transit Connect Wagon. The Ford Transit Connect is a versatile vehicle that can be equipped either for cargo or, in the case of the Connect Wagon, for people in a similar fashion to a minivan like the Odyssey.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda Odyssey
As you can tell by looking at the table above, although the Ford Transit Connect is a versatile vehicle and definitely has the ability to act as a people-moving minivan, it doesn’t do it nearly as well as the Odyssey. Starting from the top of the table, the Odyssey dominates it in terms of power. While power might not be the most essential specification to a minivan, it is still important for drivers to enjoy their experience behind the wheel, and an extra 79 horsepower is a pretty big advantage in that regard.
But it is the interior space of the vehicle where the Odyssey truly drives things home. Behind the back row of seats, the Connect Wagon only provides 15.7 cubic feet of space to fill with luggage or whatever you and your numerous passengers need to bring along. The Odyssey delivers well over twice that amount of space – an extra 22.7 cu. ft. to be exact. And with the seats folded down, an extra 44.3 cu. ft.
Passenger volume is even more important than cargo in a minivan, which is why the extra 29.4 cu. ft. of space for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in is such a huge advantage. If you’d like a huge boost and power and plenty of extra space, then the 2016 Honda Odyssey is the minivan for you.
