Although both vehicles have excellent handling characteristics, the Odyssey has the stronger engine and better driving experience than the Pacifica, making it the better choice for owners who intend to spend a lot of time on the road. In addition, it has a larger cargo capacity than the Pacifica, a point that anyone with a family should consider. Finally, most reviewers agree that the Honda Odyssey provides more comfortable seating for the driver and passengers, which is a must for those long drives.

Seating Accommodations

When buying a minivan, one of the first questions you’ll ask is how many people it can hold. From family outings to carpool trips, a minivan needs to be roomy and comfortable. While both models are considered near the top of the line, the Odyssey edges the Pacifica out. For one thing, the Odyssey can seat up to eight people, compared to the seven seats the Pacifica possesses. In addition, spill resistant cloth upholstery and optional leather upholstery make for an excellent ride experience. Best of all, unlike the Pacifica, the Odyssey’s second-row seats can be adjusted laterally, backward, and forward with five different available positions. This can make it incredibly easy to find a comfortable position, whether the occupants are children or adults.

Cargo Space

Here the Odyssey is the clear winner, with 150 cubic feet of cargo space to the Pacifica’s 140.5 cubic feet. In addition, while the Pacifica has folding second-row seats, that feature made the seats less comfortable than the Odyssey’s removable second-row seats. In addition, an optional power liftgate with is available, including a hands-free version, which makes the Odyssey an excellent choice for older drivers and families where the adults may have their hands full handling their children.


Both the Honda Odyssey and the Chrysler Pacifica have the kind of performance that drivers and passengers will enjoy. However, the Odyssey’s standard nine-speed automatic transmission helps to edge out the Pacifica for the best handling minivan on the road. For those interested in the best possible performance, the Odyssey also offers a 10-speed automatic transmission. Its mileage is estimated to give 19/28 for city/highway driving, which is slightly better than the Pacifica’s 18/28 mileage.

For most buyers, the best minivan for 2018 will be the Honda Odyssey, even though the 2017 Pacifica remains an excellent minivan. However, it's best to get a close look at both minivans before committing to a choice.
