2016 Ford Transit Connect vs. 2016 Kia Sedona Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Transit Connect will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Sedona.

Convenience
The Kia Sedona requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Transit Connect, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Ford Transit Connect is a better financial choice over the Kia Sedona, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Transit Connect is much higher than that for the Kia Sedona.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Transit Connect is much slimmer than the Kia Sedona, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Ford Transit Connect, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Sedona.

Drivetrain
The Ford Transit Connect has much lower torque than the Kia Sedona, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Transit Connect has a larger turning radius than the Kia Sedona, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Sedona is clearly the choice over the Ford Transit Connect for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Transit Connect has a lot less horsepower than the Kia Sedona.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Ford Transit Connect seats a lot fewer people than the Kia Sedona. The Ford Transit Connect has less cargo space than the Kia Sedona, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Transit Connect is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sedona.
