2021 Kia Sedona vs. Its Competition

2021 Kia Sedona
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Sedona is nearly outgunned in every meaningful category by competitors—including those across the lot.

The Honda Odyssey and Chrysler Pacifica are our picks among minivans.

(The related Chrysler Voyager is a low-cost leader for families on a tighter budget.) The Toyota Sienna is similarly aged, like the Sedona, and both are past their sell-by dates.

The Kia Telluride and Kia Sorento are three-row crossovers available on the same lots; we named the Telluride our Best Car To Buy 2020.

Take a look there.

Quick Specs
5.7
The 2021 Kia Sedona is a van when only a van will do; competitors and even Kia offer better family vehicles.
The 2021 Kia Sorento crossover finds a new look but the same mission: it’s the smaller hauler compared to the Telluride.
7.2
The 2020 Chrysler Pacifica is everything you could want in a large family vehicle, crossovers be damned.
6.7
The 2020 Honda Odyssey has nearly everything we like in a family vehicle, minus the ground-up Cheetos in the back.
7.5
There’s substance to the 2020 Kia Telluride’s style.
5.5
The 2020 Toyota Sienna balances impressive power and available all-wheel drive with unimpressive crash-test scores.
