After looking into 2 of the most popular family vans that we have requests for, we have decided to a quick overview of the flexibility in the seating and trunk space you get between the Honda Odyssey and the Toyota Estima.
If your kids are slightly older and arent in booster seats then the Odyssey is a good car. Slightly smaller than the Estima, which makes it good to get down some of the narrower streets in Tokyo. But if you are planning to use the car for trips away you will find it limited in space, making everyone feel cramped.
In terms of size, the Toyota Estima is the larger of the two cars. The 3rd-row seats feel like proper seats that adults can use as well as having the handy option to fold one the 3rd row down flat and adding extra space for the trunk. This is very useful if you have buggy’s or are planning on going camping or a long trip.
