If you're shopping for a minivan, it's a solid possibility you've seen a commercial for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, which has been all over the airwaves with spots featuring comedian Jim Gaffigan, among other commercials touting the new minivan's features. The 2017 Kia Sedona, on the other hand, has been quietly burnishing its reputation as one of the top minivans on the market, and a very affordable one at that, as the 2017 Sedona can be yours for just over $22,000 at Friendly Kia of New Port Richey FL, while our competitor is asking more than $24,000 for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica.
The 2017 Sedona also comes with nice features like available First-Class Lounge Seating in the top-line SXL trim, which enables second-row passengers to move their seats 11 inches total forward or backward, to wherever the conversation or games are, during road trips. With this Lounge Seating feature, you also can move up to 3.3 inches sideways to give you and a fellow second-row passenger additional room. The 2017 Pacifica does not have this feature.

So you've got a couple thousand dollars in your pocket in savings if you opt for the 2017 Kia Sedona, but that means it provides less minivan, right? Not so fast, as the 2017 Sedona has more cargo room in back, 142 cubic feet to the 2017 Pacifica's 140.5, and the Sedona also comes with available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto while the Pacifica does not. So while you're making hands-free calls and texts on the go in the Sedona, the Pacifica lags behind in tech options.
