Performance and Utility

The Kia Sedona touts a standard 3.3-liter V6 engine capable of generating 276 horsepower. That's plenty of "oomph" to deliver a swift ride on the highway and through the city. The model isn't just quick; it further boasts an impressive towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. That's more than enough grit and muscle to transport your outdoor toy like an ATV or haul your extra camping gear in tow. The Honda Odyssey features a 3.5-liter V6 engine that's also nimble in in-city and throughway driving conditions. Akin to the Kia Sedona, the Honda Odyssey also boasts a 3,500-pound tow rating. It's a pretty even playing field in the performance arena! However, the Kia Sedona also offers a larger gas tank capable of storing up to 21.1 gallons - the Odyssey only offers a maximum storage capacity of 19.5 gallons.

Exterior and Interior Design

Life will suddenly become a lot less stressful with the Kia Sedona and its many offered convenience features. Such amenities include a Smart Power Liftgate system that opens when its system monitors and senses your Smart Key system. You won't even have to swing your leg to open the trunk! Honda offers many of the same exterior features, but you'll need to pay more to enjoy them.

The interior of a minivan is arguably its most important and crucial feature. It's tough to find a proper balance between comfort, convenience, and room for cargo versatility, but the Kia Sedona showcases a cabin that will let you hold all the cards. This minivan features a cockpit design similar to an SUV offering a commanding view of the road and excellent visibility. In terms of comfort, the Sedona sports heated and ventilated front seats with three heating levels and an optional tri-zone automatic climate control system. The Honda Odyssey features available heated and ventilated first-row seats as well as a leather-trimmed interior configuration with top-market materials.

Other features include the Slide-N-Stow Seating arrangement, which allows you to tailor your vehicle's interior to fit your needs. The model also sports optional power-sliding anti-pinch doors. The Honda Odyssey boasts a Magic Slide second-row seat configuration and the CabinWatch and CabinTalk functions through which you can monitor your children and speak to them through a crisp speaker system.


The Kia Sedona will let you stay in touch and entirely content as you motor around completing your errands with its featured wireless charging pad, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and top-market optional Harman Kardon sound system. The Honda Odyssey meanwhile boasts the same smartphone integration systems as well as a multi-angle rearview camera system. However, the Odyssey only boasts the same type of infotainment system with an upgrade to the EX trim level. The base model only includes a five-inch screen and no smartphone integration. The Kia Sedona offers value from the base model on up!

Helping to ensure you're confident and in control while out and at the wheel, the Kia Sedona sports a diverse range of active driver-assistive features that are here to protect you and what matters most.

  • Blind-Spot Collision Warning System
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection
  • Park Distance Warning and more!

The Honda Odyssey also offers an array of driver-assist features, including the likes of a Road Mitigation System, Collision Mitigation System, and Lane Keeping Assist System - you'll just need to pay more for the Honda lineup's features.

What's the Verdict?

We'd suggest exploring the Kia Sedona as a candidate for your next vehicle choice due to its reliable nature, versatile build, and affordable price tag!
