Friendly Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram (DCJR) put together this 2018 Chrysler Pacifica vs. Honda Odyssey comparison to help drivers in Penn Yan, Geneva, and Watkins Glen decide.

2018 Chrysler Pacifica vs Honda Odyssey: Passenger Room

With seating for up to seven people, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica is designed to keep your family comfortable no matter how long the journey is. There are three rows of seats and a total passenger interior volume of 165 cubic feet. An important aspect of this spacious cabin is that it’s wide enough to give everyone plenty of space. Going from front to back, there are 63.8 inches of front shoulder room, 63 inches of shoulder room in the middle, and 61.2 inches of shoulder room in the back seat. The 2018 Honda Odyssey is also capable of seating seven people but you’ll be in for a more cramped ride. Overall, the interior is smaller with 163.6 cubic feet of space for a little less passenger volume. It’s also tighter across with 63.1 inches of front shoulder room, 61.6 inches of shoulder room in the middle, and only 60 inches of shoulder room in the third row.

2018 Chrysler Pacifica vs Honda Odyssey: Cargo Space

While there’s plenty of room for the whole family, the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica was also built to be able to carry a lot of cargo. Its trunk features 32.3 cubic feet of space behind the back seats. To create more room, the Pacifica also sports Stow ‘n Go® 60/40 split-folding bench seats in the third row. These also feature an available fold-into-the-floor capability. With the back row down, there’s now up to 87.5 cubic feet of cargo room. When you want to achieve maximum cargo capacity, you can collapse the middle seats with the second-row Stow ‘n Go® bucket seats. These can also fold into the floor and feature their own in-floor storage bins. An available power remote feature makes this as easy as the press of a button. Each row is designed to make loading more cargo easy and convenient. With both rows collapsed and folded, you’ll have up to 140.5 cubic feet of space! The 2018 Honda Odyssey is also able to carry a lot of cargo, but that doesn’t mean the Odyssey makes it easy. While there are folding rear seats, the only way to come close to the same amount of cargo room is to manually remove the second row of seats.

2018 Chrysler Pacifica vs Honda Odyssey: Infotainment Systems
