Families in the market for a large, convenient and well-equipped people-hauler might be interested in a high-quality minivan.

Both of these minivans are available with seating for up to eight passengers, with general seating for seven, and with plenty of family-friendly luxuries. However, time and again, the 2017 Pacifica shows that it is good to be new. This all-new minivan offers more horsepower, better mileage, and comes standard with several comfort features that the 2017 Kia Sedona lacks, like an eight-way power-adjusting driver seat and a six-speaker sound system (compared to four speakers standard on the Sedona).

Powertrain Options of the 2017 Pacifica
Another place where the Chrysler minivan excels in this 2017 Chrysler Pacifica vs 2017 Kia Sedona comparison is when it comes to powertrain. The Chrysler minivan is the only one in this comparison that is available with a hybrid powertrain option, but even when comparing the standard gasoline engines, the 2017 Pacifica excels. Its 3.6-liter V6 delivers 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet, while the 3.3-liter V6 on the 2017 Kia Sedona offers just 276 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. It would make sense that the 2017 Sedona would balance lower power and torque outputs with better fuel efficiency, but instead the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica also offers the top fuel-efficiency numbers in this comparison.
Both of these vehicles deliver convenience and safety options. The 2017 Kia Sedona comes with Slide-N-Stow second-row captain's chairs in many trims, and the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica has Stow 'n Go seats which easily fold forward. Both of these minivans have received the prestigious Top Safety Pick Plus honor from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Some of the safety features available on the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica that helped it earn that award include an automatic parking system, forward collision mitigation with automatic braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure prevention.
