2019 Kia Sedona vs 2019 Honda Odyssey

The minivan: it’s a vehicle not without controversy. People tend to either love it or hate it. But whichever side you fall on, it's hard to deny that this tried-and-true family transporter offers unparalleled roomy comfort and practical cargo capabilities, whether or not it’s currently in fashion.

The good news is that the 2019 Kia Sedona actually brings sleek style to the minivan game with its great look. On top of this, it boasts strong safety, intuitive infotainment, a buttery riding experience, and sturdy interior comfort. For 2019, users get updated tech and an added eight-speed transmission, among other treats. And it’s all coupled with a below-average starting price.

This is a pretty intimidating repertoire to go up against, but the 2019 Honda Odyssey thinks it’s up to the challenge. So be it. Let’s contrast the key features of each vehicle in our model… showdown? Nay- model deathmatch.

2019 Kia Sedona Technology Features

For 2019, tech gets an upgrade in the Kia Sedona. You get a larger standard infotainment screen, along with the much-vaunted Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integrations. There’s also newly available features like wireless phone charging and driver drowsiness monitoring.

Does the 2019 Sedona or 2019 Odyssey have more interior space?

The 2019 Kia Sedona stands out for having both better passenger and cargo volume than the 2019 Honda Odyssey, two major factors for minivan shoppers. This includes the key area of rear legroom, which can affect comfort significantly for backseat passengers.

If you spring for the right configuration, the 2019 Honda Odyssey can get slightly (two additional cubic feet) more cargo volume with the seats removed.  But note that in order to access this full volume you need to remove the second-row seats from your vehicle instead of just folding them down. What an inconvenience!

2019 Kia Sedona vs 2019 Honda Odyssey Value

Finally, the 2019 Kia Sedona offers everything above for a significantly lower price point than the 2019 Honda Odyssey. Honda tries to justify their beefy price by fitting the Odyssey with some questionable amenities. We’re just saying: do you really need an intercom to talk to your backseat passengers?
