2014 Kia Sedona vs. 2015 Toyota Sienna Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sedona than in the Toyota Sienna. The Kia Sedona will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Sienna.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Sedona as you will with the Toyota Sienna, 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). Clearly, the Kia Sedona is a better financial choice over the Toyota Sienna, 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. Both the Kia Sedona and the Toyota Sienna have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Kia Sedona is about the same width as the Toyota Sienna. When looking at overall length, the Kia Sedona takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Sienna.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Kia Sedona and the Toyota Sienna are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Sienna is clearly the choice over the Kia Sedona for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Kia Sedona and the Toyota Sienna.

Utility
The Kia Sedona has less seating than the Toyota Sienna, making the Toyota Sienna the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Kia Sedona has less cargo space than the Toyota Sienna, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Sedona than that of the Toyota Sienna.
