2018 Kia Sedona Vs. 2018 Honda Pilot

2018 Kia Sedona split screen with 2018 Honda Pilot

Transporting family or friends requires an ambitious vehicle. Within the marketplace, two popular options for this monumental task are third-row crossovers and minivans. While the former gives drivers all-wheel drive and a higher ride height, the latter is founded on offering the maximum possible space and comfort to make road trips and grocery trips equally as accommodating and cozy. While every vehicle on the market requires some sacrifice, drivers of either must choose which elements are the most important for their unique needs and situation.

Today, we’re going to compare the brilliant Kia Sedona minivan to the third-row crossover, Honda Pilot. We’ll look at both vehicles and compare their cargo and passenger carriage abilities through the lens of interior space, capability and comfort level as well as standard or available technology. So, buckle up or we’re turning this comparison around. Let’s see who makes the best vehicle for family transportation!

When it Comes to Comfort and Space, You Just Can’t Beat a Minivan

When it comes to offering plenty of comfortable space for up to 8 passengers, nobody does it better than the minivan. Although third-row crossovers pride themselves on their higher ground clearance and available all-wheel drive, the fact of the matter is that nine times out of ten, a minivan is the better option.

The 2018 Kia Sedona handily bests the 2018 Honda Pilot in terms of cargo volume, passenger space, standard interior features and peace of mind. It has a longer warranty, a better crash-test rating and is nearly $10,000 less expensive.
