Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna. Yeah, minivans are more efficient in interior packaging and are easier to live with than an SUV unless you need to off-road. However, most of the 3 row SUVs now are just boxy minivans.

The new Odyssey, 2018 and newer, has been having some electrical and infotainment issues. 2011-2017 Odyssey is likely to be a little less reliable than the Sienna. There isn't really anything wrong with any year of the Sienna, so I would go with that. 2015 and newer was a slight refresh and I would recommend those years.

I personally like the interior and feeling of the Odysseys more, so I would go with the Honda. But for people who put reliability first, they should get the Sienna.

Seat comfort is highly subjective and dependent on your particular size and shape. I'd drive a bunch of them, including the Toyota and Honda but also the Kia Sedona and Chrysler Pacifica, and see which one you find most comfortable. I've personally had the most issues with Honda seats. I found the Kia the sportiest to drive of the bunch, if this matters. But it also has the smallest cargo area. The Chrysler is the most versatile, as you can fold both rows into the floor, but is also the most likely to require repairs. The Dodge Grand Caravan is the oldest design, but partly because it's been in production for over a decade has pretty good reliability. As with the Chrysler you can fold both seats into the floor. As a used car they should be relatively cheap. If you don't mind its blah stying, it could be your best bet.

The Honda is not recommended by Consumer Reports today. I'd look at Pacifca Hybrid with an extended warranty instead
