Pacifica And Sienna Show 2017 Honda Odyssey How Its Done

By  | 

Way back when it first arrived on the market the Honda Odyssey was an innovative vehicle in the minivan segment. Today the vehicle is still a well-known name but it hasn’t really been able to live up the standards it once had.

Now that we are in 2017 things are looking good for minivans as in 2016 the segment seemed to pickup. The demand for pickup trucks along with crossovers has picked up. The Honda Odyssey however hasn’t been at the front of the growth in the sector and it has had to take a back seat to the Chrysler Pacifica.

In November 110, 435 units of the Honda Odyssey sold and this was down 4.7% during the same period the year before.

The Toyota Sienna also saw a steep decline and this was 6.8% down, however it did manage to beat the sales of the Honda Odyssey with 116, 622 sales. The leader among the segment is the Dodge Grand Caravan and this sold 120, 991 units with 34.7% growth in 2015.

The combined sales of the Chrysler Pacifica and the Chrysler Town and Country are 110, 888 and this means the Odyssey is well behind in the pecking order. The 2016 version isn’t going to change for 2017 and so we will have to see what Honda does with the 2018 Honda Odyssey.
