In the Odyssey written by Homer, Odysseus undergoes a 10-year journey home. But it won't take us nearly that long to show how the 2017 Kia Sedona is a superior minivan to the 2017 Honda Odyssey.
Let us count the ways: When you are shopping for a minivan, you want something comfortable, versatile and safe. Among these two only the 2017 Sedona was an IIHS Top Safety Pick, which means it’s one of the most impact-resistant minivans. And only the 2017 Sedona has available Nappa Leather for your interior seating trim in its highest SXL trim level, for a plush and decadent driving experience, while the Odyssey does not have this available fabric.
If you're also looking to save money – and who isn't? - then the 2017 Sedona can be yours on our lot with our available VIP Price for less than $22,000, while the 2017 Odyssey will run you more than $28,000 on competing lots in the Tampa FL area.

We've seen the 2017 Kia Sedona is a couple thousand dollars less for a starting price than the 2017 Honda Odyssey and it has the prestige of an IIHS Top Safety Pick, but it also has some available next-level driver-assist features like Smart Cruise Control, which automatically decelerates your Sedona when you're on cruise and you get too close to a vehicle in front of you, and Autonomous Emergency Braking, which pumps the brakes in an emergency if you are unable to do so. The 2017 Odyssey doesn’t have either of these features.
The 2017 Odyssey also doesn't have nearly the performance the 2017 Sedona has, which pumps out 276 horsepower thanks to a 3.3-liter V6 engine, which makes lane changes and merging onto the highway easy. On the other hand, the 2017 Odyssey has 248 HP as its peak performance level. No matter what you prefer – performance, price or features – the 2017 Sedona is a superior minivan, and we have it in stock at Friendly Kia, 5819 US Highway 19 in New Port Richey, FL. We also serve the Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg area, as well as Brooksville, Trinity, Tarpon Springs and Spring Hill.
