2011 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite vs. 2011 Toyota Sienna SE

Where many car companies are abandoning the minivan genre in favor of more politically and socially acceptable SUV crossovers, both Toyota and Honda pulled out all the stops redesigning new for 2011 models. Do realize this review speaks only of the SE variant of the 2011 Toyota Sienna, which comes with a sporty yet still compliant suspension set-up, a sport steering rack eerily similar to that of last year's Odyssey.
In fact, the 2011 Toyota Sienna SE stands up as my favorite vehicle from this sometimes troubled automaker. Yes, the simple fact is that the most fun to drive Toyota is their minivan. Sure, Honda invented the fun to drive minivan with last generation's model, but this time out they focused their attention on a more experimental exterior design, whereas the Sienna SE looks like something built to carry giant loaves of bread. Yes, it is your typical minivan that looks a lot like a breadbox so don't expect any daredevil visual radicalism in the vein of Toyota's classic mid-engined space egg classic from the 1990s known as the Previa.
