Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Sedona than in the Chrysler Pacifica, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chrysler Pacifica and the Kia Sedona.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chrysler Pacifica is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Sedona. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chrysler Pacifica is much higher than that for the Kia Sedona.

Dimensions
The Chrysler Pacifica is a little wider than the Kia Sedona, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Chrysler Pacifica takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Sedona.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chrysler Pacifica transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Kia Sedona.

Handling
The Chrysler Pacifica has a larger turning radius than the Kia Sedona, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Chrysler Pacifica will do just as well as the Kia Sedona, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Chrysler Pacifica has a little more horsepower than the Kia Sedona.

Utility
The Chrysler Pacifica has less seating than the Kia Sedona, making the Kia Sedona the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Chrysler Pacifica as you will in the Kia Sedona.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chrysler Pacifica is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sedona.
