I had assumed that SXL was only available with the 7 seat captain chairs but just found out that it is only on the limited option.
I am trying to decide between SX with the advanced tech package and the base SXL.
The only differences I notice are 19 inch wheels, chrome handles, fancy bumpers, different fog lights. Both don't get sunroof in 8 seat option.
The mpg seems lower on SXL (probably due to the wheels?)
Any other differences?
I will only speak of the 2016 through 2018 Sedonas, I cannot speak for the new 2019 refresh, especially since there is no more SXL version for 2019.
If you are short on cash, need a van for your young family with small kids, and are willing to buy used, which I highly advise you (these vans depreciate despite their goodness and principally due to the general population refusing to recognize how good the Sedona are...), Continue to read:
1) I would have, and most people (if not @//) would be perfectly fine with the SX version, it has everything that you need and nothing that you don't. The only reason I got the SXL is because I wanted to splurge for myself for the additional cosmetic and bling bling bits...
I wanted the 8pax in the highest trim because this is a car/van we are planning to keep for 10+ years. (I don't like chrome wheels on the SXL, but I like the other chrome bits on the exterior).
2) I dont how many child car seat (if any) that you are planning to use on the 8pax configuration, but the Sedona UNFORTUNATELY and ONLY has 3 spots with anchors (BOOOOO!!!) The Other vans in the segment all have at least 4 or more....
The Sedona has two anchors in the middle row and only ONE on the right side of the 3rd row. (BOOO)
I wish my 8pax Sedona has sunroofs, 8speed, electric hand brake rather than the archaic foot/hand brake, auto rain sensing wipers, and at least 4 anchors for child seats, then it would have been the perfect van.... (A three pedal manual shifting option would be ideal, but I am in dream Land now)
I truly believe the Sedona is highly underated by EVERYONE and is unfortunately / sadly so easily dismissed by members of the auto press....
I test dove the Pacifica before buying the Sedona, I do not regret my choice.
