On both vans, you’ll find front-wheel drive and an automatic transmission for a well-balanced, composed ride every time. When it comes fuel economy, the Sienna earns 19 mpg city/27 mpg highway while the new Odyssey earns 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway** with its base engine and 9- or 10-speed automatic. Both are economical in the city, but the Odyssey will go a bit further on the highways around Kamuela.
