2019 Kia Sedona Vs. 2019 Chrysler Pacifica

split screen image showing 2019 kia sedona and 2019 chrysler pacifica side by side

Though often seen as symbols of resignation, minivans are an amazing value for the comfort, convenience and power you get. Unfortunately, their design hasn’t always been, let’s say, “cutting edge.” This lack of thought for how the vehicles were presented has contributed to their reputations as emblems of adult compromise and surrendering fun for function. Most minivans, after all, fit somewhere between “handheld vacuum cleaner” and “upside down great white shark” in terms of design.

Since its current incarnation, the Kia Sedona has stood for more. With a gigantic, “tiger’s nose” grille and muscular side panels, the Sedona maintains crossover-like proportions. For 2019, this elegance is being augmented by sporty contours and more aggressive front/rear-bumper styling cues. Today, we’re comparing the 2019 Kia Sedona to the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica, a more classically-styled van, to see which family-mover comes out on top!

Better Value Awaits with the 2019 Kia Sedona!

Although the 2019 Kia Sedona has not been released at the time of this page’s publication, Kia is obviously on track to deliver another vehicle that beats its competition with the 2019 iteration of their stylish and sturdy minivan.

Not only does the Kia Sedona give drivers more passenger space, more cargo space and greater reliability, but it’s also a vehicle that takes care of interior details. Available Nappa leather seating offers comfortable riding and a sophisticated look. The standard 7-inch UVO infotainment system allows you take advantage of Apple CarPlay/Android Auto functionality from the base model up.
