2019 Kia Sedona vs 2019 Honda Odyssey

2019 Kia Sedona vs 2019 Honda Odyssey

While a large number of people are shifting their preference to the SUV, Kia is one of the last few stalwarts to carry a minivan in their lineup. Still the preferred method for transporting larger families, minivans now have a bit more appeal than in the past. Thanks to innovations both in style and interior comforts and conveniences, models like the Kia Sedona are a stellar choice for drivers everywhere. Take a look at this comparison between the 2019 Kia Sedona vs 2019 Honda Odyssey!

While the Sedona boasts some of the most luxurious seating arrangements and available amenities inside, the Odyssey is an iconic model as well. However, it’s the Sedona that comes out ahead with a bit more cargo space and passenger space. Check out the table below to see how they compare!

Highlights in the 2019 Sedona

While the Odyssey may get more attention, it’s the Sedona that actually comes out ahead in almost every category. First is the lower price tag. That nearly $3,000 difference in price is important to consider if you’re on a budget. Even with the smaller MSRP, the Sedona still comes out ahead in other major categories, such as an extra cubic foot of cargo space and an extra two cubic feet of passenger space.

That’s only the beginning. The Sedona has a greater towing capacity than the Odyssey, which is ideal for those who may want to tow a trailer behind their minivan. A larger fuel tank in the Sedona means you can go further on a full tank. Peace of mind is a premium, and you’ll have that with a longer bumper-to-bumper warranty in the Sedona (5 years/60,000 miles compared to 3 years/36,000 miles in the Odyssey). The advantages for the Sedona don’t end there, though. The standard infotainment system is better thanks to a 7-inch infotainment screen with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Odyssey’s standard infotainment screen is a smaller 5 inches, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are optional and not standard.

Even with the legacy and hoopla surrounding the Odyssey every year, Kia continues to appeal to drivers on a budget with the reliable and better-equipped Sedona.
