To see how the 2016 Honda Odyssey stacks up against the Kia Sedona minivan, continue reading below!
Minivans are all about convenience and spaciousness, and those are two of the many areas where the 2016 Honda Odyssey shines. Honda's popular minivan provides more passenger volume than Kia's Sedona, and that extra space can be felt throughout the cabin. Odyssey passengers will enjoy more second-row and third-row legroom, more second-row headroom and hip room, as well as more shoulder room for all seven passenger seating positions. When deciding on which minivan to drive, it is tough to argue against choosing the one with more space for your family, friends, and loved ones.
If you are going to be transporting up to seven passengers in your new minivan, then you certainly need lots of space for their gear. Thankfully the 2016 Honda Odyssey has cargo space galore -- or up to 148.5 cubic feet, to be precise. Standard cargo volume, meaning when all seven seats are in the upright position, is rated at 38.4 cubic feet in the Odyssey, compared to just 33.9 in the Kia Sedona. When you fold down the rear seats of both minivans, you will find that the Odyssey's maximum cargo volume of 148.5 cubic feet eclipses that of the Sedona, which provides a mere 142 cubic feet. It is clear that when cargo and passenger space matter when choosing a minivan for your family, the 2016 Honda Odyssey comes out on top!
From driving the kids to soccer practice to family road trips over spring and summer break, families with minivans put a lot of miles on their vehicles; that is why finding a fuel-efficient minivan is such a smart choice. You can save thousands of dollars over the lifespan of your minivan if you choose a fuel-sipping model like the 2016 Honda Odyssey. Thanks to its 3.5-liter V6 engine, connected to an efficient automatic transmission and powering the front wheels, the 2016 Odyssey minivan achieves an impressive EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 19 city/28 highway/22 combined mpg. That compares very favorably to its rival from Kia, the Sedona minivan, which only manages to return an estimated 18 city/24 highway/20 combined mpg rating. As you can see, in combined city/highway driving, the Odyssey tops the Sedona by two mpg! A difference of two mpg will definitely start to add up over the many miles that you and your family put on your new minivan. For a minivan that allows you to visit the gas station less frequently, get into the 2016 Honda Odyssey!
While torque may not be the first thing that comes to mind when shopping for a minivan, it is actually quite crucial. When your minivan is loaded down with passengers and/or cargo, you will want to know that you have the power to manuever through traffic safely, and that is where the torque comes into play. Offering more standard torque than the Kia Sedona, the 2016 Honda Odyssey is better prepared for hectic daily driving, as well as for hauling cargo or kids around town! Given that the Odyssey also weighs less than the Sedona, you are sure to notice the boost in power and capability when you compare these two out on the roads.
If you are looking for a new minivan that comes nicely equipped in standard base trim, then look no further than the 2016 Honda Odyssey. Standard on the 2016 Odyssey is Honda's innovative Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines, which provides drivers with a better view of what is behind the vehicle, thanks to its three different angles: normal, top-down, and wide. Kia, meanwhile, only fits its Sedona minivan with a basic one-angle rearview camera. A number of the 2016 Odyssey's other standard features, like its Front Active Head Restraints, power-adjustable driver's seat, and anti-theft stereo, are not offered on the Kia Sedona base model. You would have to upgrade if you would like those features added to a Kia Sedona, which means a heftier price tag for your new minivan. Other popular standard features on the 2016 Honda Odyssey minivan include:
The 2016 Honda Odyssey and Kia Sedona are both extremely safe minivans, as they each achieved the NHTSA's 5-Star Overall Rating for crash tests. One reason to choose the Odyssey over the Sedona for safety is that Honda provides Front Active Head Restraints as standard on the Odyssey, whereas Kia does not offer them on the base Sedona. With the 2016 Odyssey, you can also get the available Honda Sensing™ system, which includes a host of smart technologies to better alert the driver to possible obstacles or collisions.
