Although the segment has been thinned by brands exiting in favor of third-row SUVs, minivans are still an incredibly practical vehicle for those looking for comfortable transportation for five or more passengers. With a minivan, you have third-row seats that are nearly as big, thick and deeply pitched as a second-row seat in an SUV. You also typically have over 100 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats folded, an amount SUVs haven’t really been able to get close to.
With most minivans looking pretty stale, the Kia Sedona has challenged the class to be more than just practical, however. With its large grille and muscular, SUV-like proportions, the Kia Sedona asks drivers to expect more in their minivans. For 2019, it’s better than ever with sporty accents and a refined interior. Up against the 2019 Kia Sedona, the Toyota Sienna hopes to pull some of its value points. Let’s see how they do:
2019 Kia Sedona
2019 Toyota Sienna
|21.1 gallons||Fuel tank size||20 gallons|
|Yes/Yes||Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility||Yes/No|
|166 cubic feet||Passenger space||164 cubic feet|
|10 years/100,000 miles||Engine/powertrain warranty||5 years/60,000 miles|
|5 years/60,000 miles||Limited warranty||3 years/36,000 miles|
|$27,200||MSRP starts at||$31,315|
While the 2019 Toyota Sienna comes closer than most to matching the incredible and enduring value of the 2019 Kia Sedona, it can’t quite get there.
After all, the 2019 Kia Sedona offers more fuel range, the ability to connect to Android smartphones and a larger interior that allows passengers more comfort.
It also has Kia’s industry-best 10-year/100,000-mile engine/powertrain warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile limited warranty for everything else. While both brands have hung their hats on reliability, Kia stands behind their van until nearly the 2030s. That’s pretty impressive.
