Families have many choices for minivans, but a minivan that stands out from the crowd is the Kia Sedona, with its smooth ride, spacious interior, generous warranty coverage, and a multitude of features at an affordable price. The Sedona gets even better for the 2019 model-year with many upgrades, including bolder styling, a new 8-speed automatic transmission, and the newly available Rear Entertainment System. One of the minivan competitors of the Sedona is the Honda Odyssey. See how they measure up in this 2019 Kia Sedona vs 2019 Honda Odyssey comparison.
The 2019 Sedona offers plenty of space, with the ability to fit up to eight passengers and a passenger volume of 166 cu-ft. The 2019 Odyssey can also seat eight passengers, but it has a slightly lower passenger volume of 164 cu-ft. The Sedona has an abundance of cargo space as well, and the split-folding 60/40 second-row offers a great deal of cargo flexibility.
