2018 Kia Sedona vs Toyota Sienna

2018 Kia Sedona in Quakertown PA

One of the most useful vehicles ever designed is a mini-van. In fact, mini-vans are referenced with soccer moms, which makes them a household word. Our featured model in this class is the 2018 Kia Sedona. The Sedona offers the most attractive body lines in automotive design, and yet, it gives owners the luxurious first-class experience for the money.

Like all the Kia models, the Sedona is loaded with technology and convenience, and its performance is nothing to turn your head from. In every trim level, you get amazing standard comfort and convenience features that up to 8 Quakertown PA passengers can enjoy. For this year’s model, Kia designers focused heavily on utility and passenger enjoyment. All these great amenities transferred to the 2019 Kia Sedona, which delivers that same stylish exterior and the sought-after euro-fashioned front grille. The 2019 Sedona is an excellent minivan perfectly sized, spacious, packed with tech features, and, you look good driving it.

2018 Sedona advantages over the Toyota Sienna

Now, you may be considering the handling performance and speed of both the 2018 Kia Stinger and 2018 Ford Mustang, but it’s important for us to point out the differences in what the manufacturers sought to accomplish. For engine options, both Kia and Ford let drivers choose between two that focus on performance and fuel efficiency. Our one-to-one comparison ends there, that’s because both models seek to accomplish two very different things while simultaneously delivering speed.

The 2018 Ford Mustang is not a luxury vehicle, and nor does it pretend to be. Many of the interior sophistication and comforts of luxury sports sedans are removed from its design, and instead, Ford provides the traditionally known performance vehicle. You’ll see this right away when looking at the interior features. Offered in some of the highest trim level options for the 2018 Ford Mustang, Kia out-classes the muscle car in climate control, audio system, and infotainment.

The 2018 Kia Stinger’s luxuriously-furnished interior includes 5 full seats and 60-40 folding split rear seats, 4-door access, fastback design, and heated front seats. Looking past the standard features offered in both cars, they each have a body style and build that serves as an indicator of their function. So, these features help demonstrate the Stinger was designed to be your daily life as much as it was to be a performance sports car.

In comparison, the 2018 Ford Mustang designers adhere to the tradition of a performance driving experience. The 2-door coupe only offers 4 seats with limited rear head and legroom, which is roughly 6” less for legroom and 3” less for headroom than the Stinger provides for its rear passengers. The Kia Stinger also offers three times the space offered by Mustang.

Both vehicles are designing prodigies, but beyond the speed and performance, these cars are very different. So, if you’re looking for speed, day-to-day functionality, and comfort, the Stinger is a superior car inside and out.
