Do 2016 Kia Sedona Standard Features Compete with Honda?

June 14th, 2016 by

2016 Honda OdysseyThe 2016 Kia Sedona standard features might look like a step up from minivans of five to 10 years ago, but are they able to compete with the options available to Mid-Michigan drivers now? We think that when it comes to minivans, there are few vehicles like the 2016 Honda Odyssey, so we put the Sedona up against Honda’s minivan in a side-by-side comparison of the features.

You can see the full details in our 2016 Kia Sedona review, but we’ve got a quick rundown of what separates the features of the Odyssey from its Kia competitor.

The Sedona L Features

The L trim level is the base model, and the 2016 Kia Sedona standard features start here. The minivans available in the current auto market have quite a few amenities in common, but the Odyssey has the edge over many competitors, including the Sedona, in some key areas:

  • Rearview Camera: The 2016 Honda Odyssey has a standard rearview camera sysem with guidelines for easy backing up. The Kia requires upgrades from the base trim level in order to have a rearview camera.
  • Touchscreen Infotainment System: The Odyssey comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that makes it easy to manage your media in one convenient place. While the Kia minivan does eventually have a touchscreen available, it requires multiple upgrades from the base trim.
  • Power-adjustable Driver’s Seat: Odyssey drivers can get comfortable without needing to fiddle with a bunch of levers and knobs; just push a button to have the chair move around until you get comfortable. Like the camera and the touchscreen, the Sedona requires upgrades for a power-adjustable driver’s seat.

Not only does the base trim of the Odyssey start off better than the Kia, Honda gives drivers six trim levels to the Sedona’s five, offering a greater amount of variety and high-end luxury features.

Test Drive an Odyssey

The 2016 Honda Odyssey has quite a bit going for it, and we think Mid-Michigan drivers will love all that it has to offer. Now that you’ve seen it beat the 2016 Kia Sedona standard features, visit a Mid-Michigan Honda Dealer near you to take a test drive. We’ll show you why the Odyssey is also one of the safest cars of 2016.
