Several years ago, the minivan segment began declining in popularity until it had all but disappeared. Only a few select brands continued to manufacture them and those that did profited from continuing to perfect the model. The Kia Sedona was one of those minivans. We thought we’d see how the Sedona measures up to another of the long-running minivans on the market by pitting the 2019 Kia Sedona vs 2019 Dodge Grand Caravan in a side-by-side comparison.
You can see just how comparable to one another these two minivans are after just a simple glance at the table up above. But to break things down a bit better, we thought we’d move through the table row by row, starting at the top which kicks things off in the Sedona’s favor. While it’s not a huge advantage, even a single extra mile per gallon in terms of combined fuel efficiency will ultimately lead to some savings at the pump.
The Grand Caravan fires back in the second row with a small advantage of its own, delivering an extra 7 horsepower. That would hardly be noticeable in a real-world side-by-side comparison, let alone in our written one. The only real advantage either of these minivans has over the other is the extra 2.8 cubic feet of cargo space the Sedona offers to fit whatever you need to bring along with you. The fourth row just shows that both minivans offer seating for up to 7 passengers!
If you think you might be interested in a 2019 Kia Sedona of your own, despite giving up a whopping 7 horsepower, be sure to schedule a test drive right here at Classic Kia of Carrollton. We look forward to seeing you behind the wheel.
