2020 Chrysler Pacifica vs Honda Odyssey: Passenger Room
With seating for up to eight people, the 2020 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 interior passenger volume of 165 cubic feet. An important aspect of this spacious cabin is 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 row, and 61.2 inches of shoulder room in the back seat.
The 2020 Honda Odyssey is also capable of seating eight passengers, 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 row, and only 60 inches of shoulder room in the third row.
2020 Chrysler Pacifica vs Honda Odyssey: Cargo Space
While there’s plenty of room for the whole family, the 2020 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 a Stow ‘n Go® 60/40 split-folding bench seat in the third row. These seats also feature an available fold-into-the-floor capability.
When you want to achieve maximum cargo capacity, you can collapse the middle seats with the second-row Stow ‘n Go® seating and storage. These bucket seats 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 2020 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 entirely.
2020 Chrysler Pacifica vs Honda Odyssey: Infotainment Systems
During all your trips, the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica makes sure you stay informed while your passengers are entertained. Up front, your dashboard is available with an 8.4-inch display with integrated voice command and Bluetooth®, plus voice text reply to stay connected and safe while you drive. You’ll also find great music options here, like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Moving back a row, the available Uconnect® Theater features two HD touchscreens for second-row passengers to enjoy. There are built-in games and apps, multiple headphone jacks, and a Blu-ray™ DVD player for your kids to enjoy their favorite movies while you drive.
The 2020 Honda Odyssey also features an infotainment system, but it’s smaller at only eight inches. Additionally, the rear seat entertainment system in this minivan only offers one screen, so there may be some arguing over what to watch.
