CARS.COM — The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and 2018 Honda Odyssey are loaded with creature comforts both for parents and kids, but their second rows are where they shine — in very different ways. Parenting on the go is often a chaotic traffic jam of carpool drama, snot, giggles and tears, and minivans take some of the bumps out of the road. These two new vans have upped their game with seating, especially in the second row.
Chrysler’s segment-exclusive Stow ‘n Go seats that fold into the floor return as standard in the Pacifica, quickly and easily taking it from passenger van to moving van if need be. For 2018, the Odyssey has a Magic Slide second row that slides in many ways, making it very versatile.
Both are helpful features, but whose seating reigns supreme?
