2019 Kia Sedona vs 2019 Honda Odyssey

A combination of exceptional initial quality, versatility, and room for the whole family make the Kia Sedona and the Honda Odyssey two of the most popular vehicles in their class. Long known as one of the most reliable 8-passenger vehicles on the market, the Honda Odyssey had few peers, until now. The KIA Sedona matches up well to the Odyssey in some areas, and takes the lead, in others. An MSRP of about twenty percent less than that of the Odyssey gives the Sedona an edge in almost any head-to-head comparison. So the next question buyers might ask would be "is the Odyssey that much better, if at all?" Here's a head to head comparison of the entertainment, technology, interior, safety, and performance features of the base trims of the Kia Sedona vs. the Honda Odyssey that may shed some light on the subject.

Entertainment and Technology

Both the 2019 Sedona and 2019 Odyssey get high marks for entertainment systems that feature touchscreen controls, USB and audio input jacks, AM/FM/CD/MP3 radios, and Bluetooth connectivity. Each model also comes with built-in Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. 

Interior

The base model Sedona and Odyssey also offer buyers an exceptional level of comfort, as well. Heated front seats, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, premium cloth upholstery, and air conditioning all come standard on both models. Kias "Slide-n-Stow" feature lets owners easily fold second-row side seats into a flat upright position for more cargo space, or easy access to the third row. 

Safety

The Sedona and Odyssey are two of the safest large SUVs on the road today. Both come standard with a wealth of modern safety technologies including electronic stability control, four-wheel anti-lock brakes, electronic brake distribution, and hill-start assist. The Sedona LX also comes with rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera, at no extra charge.

Performance

For 2019, the Sedona LX and Odyssey LE each come equipped with somewhat similar powertrains - a six-cylinder, DOHC 24-valve engine linked to an automatic transmission with front-wheel-drive. Both use regular unleaded and get respectable fuel economy, as well.

The following chart lists some of the similarities and differences between the 2019 Kia Sedona and the 2019 Honda Odyssey.

Kia and Honda SUVs both offer buyers a tremendous level of comfort, performance, safety, and versatility. But, when it comes to buying a 2019 Kia Sedona in Calgary, nobody offers the great prices and an incredible level of service as South Trail Kia.
