2011 Honda Odyssey Long Term Road Test

2011 Honda Odyssey vs. 2011 Toyota Sienna: Doors

June 23, 2011


2011 Honda Odyssey Touring
Sliding door thickness: 7.5 inches


2011 Toyota Sienna SE
Sliding door thickness: 7.5 inches

I spend a fair amount of time around minivans. It's a workplace hazard. But I was still surprised the first time I opened the slider on our 2011 Honda Odyssey. The door stuck out quite a bit. I naturally walked over to our 2011 Toyota Sienna to find it was just as obtrusive.

Of course there are safety structures to blame for some of the door thickness. But all minivans can't be created equal. Our fleet offers a sample size of 2. That isn't enough for me. This is where I need your help. Do you own a minivan? Does your neighbor? Any year. Any make. Grab a tape, measure the side doors and report back.
