How Much Does a 2021 Kia Sedona Cost?

The 2021 Kia Sedona is offered in LX, EX, and SX trim levels, with 7- or 8-passenger seating. Last year’s base model, the L, has been discontinued. The Sedona LX ($30,400, plus $1,120 destination) is equipped with dual power side doors, air conditioning, stain-resistant interior fabric, a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, 12 cupholders,and 17-inch alloy wheels. Cruise control also is standard on the LX, along with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and a 6-speaker stereo. If you order a Sedona EX ($33,700), it comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, tri-zone air conditioning,and a power liftgate. Other noteworthy standard niceties include heated front seats, a cooled glovebox, and wireless smartphone charging. Standard safety tech on the EX includes a blind-spot monitor, a rear cross-traffic,and parking sensors front and rear. Automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control, we’re happy to report, are available as options on the EX. The Sedona SX ($41,500) is quite a bit more expensive than the EX, but it does have a lot more standard equipment. Besides a sunroof, LED headlights and taillights, second-row captain’s chairs, and power front seats, the SX comes with an 8-speaker Harman Kardon audio system and an 8-inch touchscreen with navigation. Also significant: The Sedona SX has firmer sport shock absorbers and a thorough standard safety suite that includes automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert,and a 360-degree surround-view monitor. The greatest number of options are available on the mid-level Sedona EX. It can be ordered with the sport shock absorbers, as well as a smart power tailgate, a sunroof, a cooled glovebox,and a 115-volt inverter behind the center console. Moreover, the EX can be ordered with several good active safety features like automatic emergency braking, a lane-departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. While a trailer hitch is available on all three trim levels, a dual-screen rear entertainment system can be ordered only on the EX and SX models The Chrysler Voyager and Dodge Grand Caravan, for the record, are priced lower than the Kia Sedona. The Chrysler Pacifica, Honda Odyssey, and Toyota Sienna are priced higher.

2021 Kia Sedona vs the competition

2020 Dodge Grand Caravan — Yes, the Grand Caravan is still being built, and this proven machine continues to sell well because it’s priced well below $30,000. Not the van if you’re looking for modern safety technology. 2020 Chrysler Voyager — Chrysler’s Voyager is a de-contented version of the Pacifica minivan, so it looks good and has an attractive MSRP but not much in the way of advanced safety tech or other options. 2020 Chrysler Pacifica — The Pacifica is sleeker and more powerful than the Sedona, and it has a more stylish interior. It’s also available as a plug-in hybrid (PHEV). However, a loaded Pacifica costs thousands more than a similarly equipped Sedona. 2021 Honda Odyssey — The Honda Odyssey has more power, a larger and more versatile interior, and better fuel economy than the Sedona. Its driving dynamics and advanced safety features are highly refined. 2020 Toyota Sienna — The outgoing Sienna’s 3.5-liter V6 is strong, and this is the only current minivan to offer AWD. Emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning and automatic high beams are standard on every 2020 Sienna. 2021 Toyota Sienna — An all-new Toyota Sienna arrives later this year as a 2021 model. All will feature a hybrid powertrain with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine supplemented by two electric motors. The rear wheels of the available new AWD model are driven exclusively by electric motors, not the gasoline engine. Used Toyota Highlander Hybrid — While not a minivan, a used 2015-2017 Toyota Highlander Hybrid will give you room for seven passengers, exceptional reliability, and great fuel economy without the soccer-mom minivan stigma.
