Better In Every Way – The 2019 Honda Odyssey in Bristol, Wisconsin
It’s battle of the minivans in today’s topic for Honda of Kenosha, and we’re ready to tell you all about the 2019 Honda Odyssey in Bristol, Wisconsin. So without further ado, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty and compare this Honda to the 2019 Kia Sedona.
Not only will you have a better fuel economy with the Odyssey (19 city/28 hwy* vs. 18 city/24 hwy), but you will also have features to improve its fuel efficiency and reduce pollution! Hidden away under the Odyssey’s hood, is a special engine control system that improves fuel efficiency by shutting down half of the engine’s cylinders. The Sedona doesn’t have this feature, nor can it automatically turn off the engine when the vehicle is stopped. On the Odyssey Touring and Elite models, when the vehicle comes to a stop from traffic or stoplights, the engine will turn off saving you fuel while reducing pollution. Once you’re ready to move again, the engine will automatically come back on, ready to go. When you’re ready to fill up the tank, you won’t have to meddle with a gas cap because this Honda comes standard with a cap-less fueling system. With this, the fuel filler automatically opens and closes when the fuel nozzle is inserted or removed, eliminating the old gas cap and reducing fuel evaporation.
So you stay visible under all conditions, the Odyssey has Daytime Running Lights, and according to studies conducted by the Canadian government, this can significantly reduce daytime accidents. Studies show that driving with daytime running lights cuts down on accidents by 11%, but the Sedona doesn’t offer this feature making it less conspicuous. If you’re ever in an accident and unable to call for help, the HondaLinkAssist will use a GPS receiver and cellular system to alert emergency personnel to your location if the airbags deploy. The Sedona doesn’t offer either of these features, so you might not feel as safe.
Moving on into the interior of this impressive minivan, you’ll feel how spacious it is since there are five more inches of passenger space throughout the cabin than in the Sedona. You’ll also notice the Odyssey is quieter because of the computer-generated active noise cancellation technology. This system removes annoying vibrations from the passenger compartment, even at low frequencies for a quiet, relaxing ride. For those in the third row, a center folding armrest will help make the rear passengers more comfortable; another feature lost on the Kia Sedona.
