It might come as a surprise if you haven't been paying attention, but the 2016 Kia Sedona and the 2016 Honda Odyssey are at the pinnacle of the minivan class. Why is this, you ask? They both have the sturdy construction that earned them 2016 International Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Picks for 2016, which makes them safe for you and your passengers, but they both also come with premium features that make them standouts among minivans. We'll put them side-by-side and see which one best suits your needs.

The Honda Odyssey is a perhaps a better-known minivan, since it's been in production since the 1990s. But that won't mean a thing when we tell you the 2016 Kia Sedona is available at prices starting at nearly $10,000 less than the 2016 Honda Odyssey at Friendly Kia with our VIP Pricing, versus the competition's price.

In addition, the 2016 Odyssey lacks the combination of climate control and seating options that will make your family and friends happy, options which the 2016 Kia Sedona has. For starters, the 2016 Sedona has lounge seating, where second-row seats can recline and move closer to or further away from surrounding passengers. The 2016 Sedona also has available heated front seats and rear seats and an available heated steering wheel, which comes in handy if you're bringing the kids back from the pool or it's chilly outside, while the 2016 Odyssey only has available heated front seats - the kids in back are out of luck.

The 2016 Kia Sedona has 11 percent more horsepower than the 2016 Honda Odyssey, with 276 HP in all model options, compared to the Odyssey's 248 HP. This way the Sedona will make it easier for you to merge onto the highway or to get a nice jump as lights turn in the city.

The 2016 Sedona also comes with a sturdier manufacturer guarantee, as all Kia vehicles come with a 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and a five-year/60,000 basic warranty, while the 2016 Odyssey comes with a lesser coverage package, with a five-year/60,000-mile limited powertrain and three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty. And if we're preaching to the choir by now, and you're interested in the Sedona's combination of comfort, value and features, then listen to what some of the other members of the chorus have to say: Autotrader.com named the 2016 Kia Sedona one of its "10 Must Test Drive Vehicles for 2016," while it finished as the top minivan in the 2016 AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction awards.

The Kia Sedona is a slam-dunk for the top minivan available, and we're glad to have it at Friendly Kia.
