2011 Honda Odyssey Bests Field in Mileage Challenge

On Monday, Cars.com will unveil its latest Shootout, the Ultimate Minivan Challenge. We pit six recently redesigned and updated minivans against each other in a series of tests.

We can’t reveal the final results here, but we will let you in on which car won out in gas mileage: the 2011 Honda Odyssey. It shouldn’t be a surprise, as the Odyssey has the best EPA ratings of 19/28 mpg city/highway. But in real-world driving — mostly highway — it returned 25.9 mpg. The Volkswagen Routan, which is EPA-rated at 17/25 mpg, came in second, returning 25.1 mpg.

Check back Monday to see the results from rest of the field, which comprised the Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, Nissan Quest and Toyota Sienna.
