2015 Honda Odyssey vs 2015 Kia Sedona
There are tons of different types of vehicles to choose from on the expansive automotive market, in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Whatever your needs may be, there is a segment for you to consider out there somewhere. The popularity of these different classifications fluctuate much like any market, and with the increase in available crossover utility vehicles we have seen a decrease in minivans on the market. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t still represented with some great options, like the Honda Odyssey. We decided to pit the safest minivan on the road against one of its competitors by comparing the 2015 Honda Odyssey vs 2015 Kia Sedona to see what kind of differences and advantages are family vehicle has with its rival.
Advantages of the 2015 Honda Odyssey
Taking a look at the table above you can see that both minivans are certainly comparable to one another, but the Honda Odyssey seems to take the cake in many different areas. Its biggest advantage comes in the way of highway fuel efficiency, where it consumes more than a litre less per 100 kilometres. Space is one of the most important specifications in the minivan class, and while its edge isn’t huge the Honda Odyssey can accommodate nearly 5 extra cubic feet of cargo and provides 6.5 cu. ft. of extra room for your passengers to move about in.
Where the Sedona seems to have an edge is in power ratings, as it has 28 horsepower more than the Odyssey. But the Odyssey in turn has a bit more foot-pounds of torque so it isn’t as dominant as it might appear. And remember how we mentioned that the Honda Odyssey was the safest minivan on the road? That statement is backed up by the fact that it was the only minivan on the market to achieve a 5-star overall safety rating from the United States’ NHTSA.
