2014 Ford Transit Connect vs. 2014 Kia Sedona Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Transit Connect than in the Kia Sedona. 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
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Transit Connect as you will with the Kia Sedona, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Transit Connect will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Sedona. 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 the same turning radius as the Kia Sedona, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Transit Connect and the Kia Sedona. The Ford Transit Connect has significantly less cargo capacity than the Kia Sedona.

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