The 2016 Honda Odyssey and the 2016 Kia Sedona are both leading minivans that you’re probably considering here in the Elgin and Crystal Lake, IL area if you’re shopping this segment. If you pick either one, you’ll get a modern family hauler with contemporary features, impressive fuel economy, and smart design. That doesn’t mean that these two minivans are equal, however, so read on to learn more about how they compare!

Performance and Efficiency

When it comes to performance for a minivan you want your powertrain and drivetrain to do a few things. First, you want to burn the least gas possible when ferrying around your family. Second, you don’t want to struggle to get up to speed with a full load!

When it comes to both of these aims, the 2016 Kia Sedona makes 248 hp with a 3.3L V6 engine. It earns an EPA estimated 18 mpg city/24 mpg highway/20 mpg combined. The 2016 Honda Odyssey makes 250 hp with its 3.5L V6 engine. It earns a 19 mpg city/28 mpg highway/22 mpg highway combined* estimate from the EPA with six-speed automatic and front-wheel drive.

It’s easy to see that the Odyssey is more efficient and more powerful, so it is the clear choice if your highest priority is efficiency and performance!


We know that one of your highest priorities is space if you’re shopping for a minivan. The 2016 Kia Sedona has space for 142.0 cubic feet behind the front seats with the rear seats folded down and 33.9 cubic feet behind the rear seats.

The 2016 Honda Odyssey provides a total of 148.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the second two rows folded and up to 38.4 cubic feet with the seats in place.

The Odyssey simply offers more cargo space. You might be surprised to learn that the Odyssey also beats the Sedona with more passenger volume in almost every dimension as well, making it simply the more spacious vehicle for you, your passengers, and your luggage.
