2018 Sedona advantages over the Toyota Sienna

Looking at several mini-vans for best resale value and cost to own statistics, we noticed the Sienna is in first and second place in areas. However, both the Sedona and Sienna have strong reputations with Warrington residence for providing years of trouble-free transportation. When searching for total comfort, versatility, and reconfigurable 8-passenger transportation, the Sedona and Toyota are two of the best matches you can compare.

In our advantages and disadvantages comparison, the Kia Sedona offers a distinctive car-like cockpit, you get a lot of features for the money, the second-row seats are more than versatile and the cabin is extremely quiet on rough highway roads. The points we found questionable are that the fuel economy is below our expectations, and the cargo capacity is off compared to rivals.

For the Sienna above average features, we found a roomy interior, good maintenance reliability, a powerful engine, and comparable gas mileage. What we didn’t like were the second-row seats are bulky, heavy and awkward to remove. Also, it offers fewer features than the Kia.

For our Warrington Sedona shoppers, we at Gateway Kia suggest the midrange EX. Kia fitted this trim model with great features at a reasonable price. Those features include a power liftgate, tri-zone climate control, power outlets, leather upholstery and enhanced shock absorbers for a more comfortable ride. Because Kia places safety as a priority, look to the EX for its Advanced Premium Technology package. This package adds the latest in Drive Wise safety aids such as blind-spot monitoring and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. It also has the performance to power up inclines, maneuver around town, and soak up those bumps in the road for a smooth, refined ride at highway speeds.
