2018 Kia Sedona Advantages Vs. 2018 Pacifica

Both the 2018 Kia Sedona and the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica place a high value on the number of interior features for drivers and passengers. Looking deeper, we see that the divergence occurs in the quality and standard-vs-available status of these minivan-defining features.

For instance, entertainment is placed at a premium in the 2018 Kia Sedona. The base model offers a CD player, 5” touchscreen and high-quality audio system. Available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto give drivers access to navigation, phone and text messaging without distraction, while passengers get music, audiobooks and podcasts for entertainment.

An available rear seat entertainment system keeps passengers distracted and drivers free of distractions to ensure a safe ride. Speaking of safety, the 2018 Kia Sedona contains a number of safety features like Automated Emergency Braking (AEB), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Lane-Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and more.

Finally, you’ll enjoy the best peace of mind with a class-leading 5-year/60,000-mile limited bumper-to-bumper warranty which beats that in the Pacifica by almost 2x. The Sedona’s limited powertrain warranty of 10 years/100,000 miles also handily elevates it to the top of the class.

The 2018 Kia Sedona provides features that meet or beat class competitors, a style that is not even a contest and a price point that slots in well below expectations. It’s a premium experience with a price tag that makes it available for everybody. For more information on the 2018 Kia Sedona, or to schedule a test drive, contact us today!
