2019 Kia Sedona vs. Its Competition

2019 Kia Sedona
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

In the minivan market, two top dogs vie for our attention.

The Honda Odyssey comes with plenty of safety gear in most trims, though its transmission can annoy.

We like the Chrysler Pacifica a lot, especially in hybrid form, but not every version comes with active safety tech.

The Toyota Sienna comes standard with automatic emergency braking and can be had with all-wheel drive but is otherwise starting to feel outdated.

If price is the only concern, the Dodge Grand Caravan is tantalizingly cheap, though it performed poorly in crash tests.

If you’re set on a Kia but can’t commit to a minivan, the three-row Telluride is new this year and is the automaker’s biggest SUV yet.
