The Toyota Sienna has been given the tongue-in-cheek nickname "Swagger Wagon," and while that is a fun nickname, the 2017 Kia Sedona needs no embellishment to show how versatile and comfortable it is. We will compare these two minivans to see which is the superior ride for your large group or cargo needs!
First off the blocks is the available price for the two models. At Friendly Kia we have the 2017 Sedona available for a VIP Price starting around $22,000 while our competition has the 2017 Sienna at starting prices of more than $33,000. Not only is the 2017 Sienna around 50 percent more affordable at Friendly Kia, when you step into this minivan you will notice nice features like available heated first- and second-row seats and First-Class Lounge Seating, where you can move the seats in the second row 11 inches total forward and backward to get closer to the fun in either the front or back row. But there's more; the 2017 Kia Sedona comes loaded with so many features and advantages that don't come with the 2017 Toyota Sienna, it puts a dagger in the swagger wagon.

The 2017 Kia Sedona also was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick, which means it is among the most impact-resistant minivans, while the 2017 Sienna did not share this prestigious honor. And while 2017 Sienna comes with a fine entertainment and audio package in its own right, the 2017 Sedona's UVO eServices come with the ability to sync up with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which means you can hook up your compatible smartphone and access your music playlist, among other benefits. Toyota vehicles do not come with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto compatibility.
There's so much to recommend about the 2017 Kia Sedona, from its high impact resistance to its seating options and starting price, that it’s a clear winner over the Toyota Sienna. We are happy to carry the Kia Sedona at Friendly Kia, 5819 US Highway 19 in New Port Richey, FL.
