Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Transit Connect will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Odyssey.

Convenience
With the Honda Odyssey, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Transit Connect, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Ford Transit Connect is a better financial choice over the Honda Odyssey, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Transit Connect is much higher than that for the Honda Odyssey.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Transit Connect is much slimmer than the Honda Odyssey, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Ford Transit Connect, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Odyssey.

Drivetrain
The Ford Transit Connect has much lower torque than the Honda Odyssey, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Transit Connect has a larger turning radius than the Honda Odyssey, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Honda Odyssey is clearly the choice over the Ford Transit Connect for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Transit Connect has a lot less horsepower than the Honda Odyssey.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Ford Transit Connect seats a lot fewer people than the Honda Odyssey. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Ford Transit Connect as you will in the Honda Odyssey.

Warranty
The Ford Transit Connect comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Odyssey.
