Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sedona than in the Toyota Sienna. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Kia Sedona and 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. In this case, the Kia Sedona will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Sienna.

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 its lower torque engine, the Kia Sedona doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Sienna.

Handling
The Kia Sedona has the same turning radius as the Toyota Sienna, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Kia Sedona will do just as well as the Toyota Sienna, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Kia Sedona has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Sienna.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Kia Sedona and the Toyota Sienna. 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.
