So here is My Black Berry 2015 Sedona EX with Premium package (Beware premium package is not as stated in Sedona dealer books (NO Memory Seats) Other thing to beware of (i'm new to KIa so others may know) UVO is not equal across the board (UVO with Jukebox) and UVO with eServices.... I wanted the eServices and had no idea of the differences, so I have the Jukebox.

I chose it over the Sienna:
Better Ride quality - more quiet - More bang for my buck - moderately more attractive - nicer interior - more dynamic driving experience (still a van) but better driving experience - found the front seats more comfortable - WARRANTY!!

Chose over Odyssey:
Because The 2014 I purchased in May 2014 (9300 miles) had already been to the mechanic 4 (YES 4) times, transmission was giving me issues. It would have been a tough choice had I not had that experience....but - Sedona has the more intelligently laid out interior, seats were more comfortable, ride was not as rough - road noise was not as prevelant, interior was more lively (more for a man), styling while unique is not polarizing, surprisingly I find throttle response better on the kia, WARRANTY!!


Best Value - Best choice for my family of 6 (4-kids and Wife)

I will say this.....

I dare anyone to drive this Kia, with an open mind, comparing it to the other vans on the market (Sienna, Odyssey, Quest, and the Twins) and not say that it is not only the best value, but a GREAT Vehicle.

It was easily first or second in EVERY category that I evaluated as important to my family during my market research with the exception of seating configurations and storage.

And I'm done... Almost... To those worried about gas mileage, I am averaging EXACTLY what I was averaging in my Odyssey so far. We'll see if this holds up over time....
20mpg (High mix of City driving)...I can't complain

That sure is pretty… my wife was concerned about a red van…. But when she saw that beautiful wine color she fell in love. I probably would have gone with the bronze/brown color should it have been available.

Garage

sure like the exterior and interior colours on your Sedona Daddy

Interesting feedback vs the Odyssey.
