If you’re looking at buying the 2016 Kia Sedona based solely on its asking price, you might be in for a nasty surprise. Though the Sedona starts low, it also fails to equip many standard features that you’ll find at no added cost with competing minivans like the 2016 Honda Odyssey. In fact, the Odyssey even offers more pricing options and far stronger fuel-economy ratings.
Prices and Trims for the Sedona and Odyssey
The 2016 Honda Odyssey allows drivers to choose among six well-balanced trim levels, with options as follows:
- LX: $29,400 MSRP*
- EX: $32,550 MSRP*
- SE: $33,500 MSRP*
- EX-L: $36,050 MSRP*
- Touring: $42,305 MSRP*
- Touring Elite: MSRP $44,875*
Here’s how the 2016 Kia Sedona’s price and trim levels break down:
- L: $26,400 MSRP
- LX: $28,500 MSRP
- EX: $32,700 MSRP
- SX: $36,400 MSRP
- SXL: $39,900 MSRP
The 2016 Kia Sedona price may be lower from the outset, but a quick comparison of its features with those of the Honda Odyssey is enough to show that you get far more for your money with the Honda.
Less Fuel, More Features in the Odyssey
The 2016 Kia Sedona price might sound tempting, but there are other factors that add up to true value. Fuel costs are always a central concern; even the smallest of differences can really eat into your pocket over the years you’re driving the vehicle.
The 2016 Honda Odyssey offers one the most sophisticated powertrains around, resulting in mileage ratings of up to an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway,** while the Sedona tops out at 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
The Odyssey also provides drivers with far more standard tech features, including:
- 240-watt, seven-speaker audio system with subwoofer
- Front active head restraints
- 8-way power driver’s seat
