Here at Lehighton Kia, our customers have been gearing towards the all-new 2020 Kia Telluride when shopping for a 3-row vehicle. However, many of them still question if they should instead go with a minivan like the 2019 Kia Sedona. If you are in the same boat, we are here to help with a special comparison that we created.

Should I Buy the Telluride Crossover or the Sedona Minivan?

Honestly, we love the 2020 Kia Telluride and the 2019 Kia Sedona minivan equally, but one might work better for your needs over the other. 

As a crossover, the Telluride is stylish yet capable of getting off the highway and into raw nature – which makes it a great choice if your family loves camping, fishing, and other outdoor activities. It also offers a stronger towing capacity than the Sedona, which means that you can pull a bigger boat or a livestock trailer with a couple of horses. While it offers plenty of room for gear, the Telluride offers significantly less cargo space than the Sedona. 

Some drivers might be a little skeptical about driving a minivan due to the memories of their youth, but we promise that the Sedona is not your Mom’s minivan from the 1990s. One reason that we love the sleekly-styled Sedona is the convenient sliding side doors. If you have kids who don’t always know their own strength, those sliding doors can prevent dings and dents in neighboring vehicles when you are in the crowded parking lot at Target. The extra space offered by the Sedona also means more gear and luggage for your next road trip – or more deliveries if you are an entrepreneur! 

In order to decide if the Telluride crossover or the Sedona minivan is right for you, we invite you to visit us here at Lehighton Kia and take both vehicles out for a couple of test drives!
