2015 Chrysler Town & Country vs Honda Odyssey
Multi-purpose luxury minivans like the Chrysler Town & Country and the Honda Odyssey offer excellent utility for the family, and coming in at the luxury end of the minivan tier they both offer similar features at a similar price point – impressive space-efficiency, improved fuel economy and nice infotainment options. Let’s take a look at some of the key differences between these cars for those looking for the best minivan for the money.
2015 Chrysler Town & Country LX

|Standard Feature||Satellite Radio|
|Standard Feature||DVD Player|
2015 Honda Odyssey LX
|Engine||3.5L Flex-fuel Engine|
|Standard Feature||Rear Door Pockets|
|Standard Feature||Cargo Tie Downs|
Performance & Exterior
The 2015 Chrysler Town & Country comes with a beefy 3.6L V6 flex-fuel engine offering just that little bit more grunt than the Honda Odyssey’s 3.5L V6 Gas engine. This translates into an extra 100 lbs. of towing capacity, 35 extra horsepower and 10 ft-lbs. of torque. The innovative flex-fuel engine allows the use of environmentally-friendly E85 alternative fuel.
Style-wise, few would disagree that the 2015 Chrysler has to take the win, with its all-new grille, winged logo and softer look. Honda’s attempt to hide the sliding-door tracks comes off as clunky in comparison, with the exterior looking significantly less refined that the Chrysler’s.
Interior & Styling
Although the same length and offering comparable interior room, the Honda Odyssey is an inch fatter and a full five inches taller than the Chrysler, revealing the extra work that Chrysler has put into the Town & Country to keep it leaner, meaner, and easier to drive around town.
Whereas both models come with 8-way power driver seats and 4-way power passenger seats, the entire 2015 Chrysler Town & Country range has leather upholstery and leather steering wheel as standard. The Odyssey is lacking the Chrysler Town & Country’s Electochromatic rearview mirror and luxury floor mats. The Chrysler’s cabin is well-decked out, with all plastic touches completed removed and instruments tastefully ringed in chrome.
Technology & Features
It’s in the technology features that the 2015 Chrysler Home & Country truly shines. The Honda Odyssey’s standard setup is rather basic when compared to the Home & Country’s video monitor and DVD player that come as standard. The Town & Country also offers remote keyless entry and a rear power liftgate door.
Both models have similar in-car audio systems, but the extra features that come with the Chrysler pips the Odyssey at the post. A separate rear audio system and satellite radio comes as standard, with a free 12 month subscription included.
