The 2017 Kia Sedona and the 2017 Toyota Sienna are two of the finer major minivans on the market, and their continued popularity and relevance are due to their quality and the comforts they provide. We'll take a look and see which is the ideal minivan for your needs.
The 2017 Kia Sedona is a carryover from 2016, but that was a great year for the minivan, as it nabbed several awards, including Autotrader's "Must Test Drive" for 2016, one of only ten models in the entire industry to make that illustrious list, thanks to its nice performance and comfort. The 2017 Sedona is much the same, with available First-Class Lounge Seating so your second-row passengers can move their chairs forward or backward, a feature which the 2017 Sienna does not have. In addition, the 2017 Sedona has an IIHS Top Safety Pick in the books. Which means the 2017 Sedona is among the most impact-resistant minivans on the market, making it perfect for long drives with the family or a group of friends, while the 2017 Sienna does not share this safety distinction.

The Kia Sedona has critics praising it for its "non-minivan" feel on the inside, with available Nappa Leather seat trim that provides ultimate luxury, and an available cooling glove box which is perfect for keeping those cans and bottles chilled when it's warm outside, or for when tensions get heated in the back rows and you need something to cool you off. The 2017 Sienna has neither of these features that make long drives or the daily commute a breeze.
While the 2017 Toyota Sienna has nice cargo room and it comes from a popular brand, it's absolutely stagnant compared to the luxury and the comforts the 2017 Kia Sedona provides. Another bonus: The Sedona is covered for 10 years or 100,000 miles for limited powertrain warranty coverage, as well as 5 years or 60,000 miles for bumper-to-bumper.
