With its balance of space and performance, the well-rounded 2017 Toyota Sienna offers Atlanta area drivers the overall experience that they need. With its elegantly appointed and spacious cabin, along with its selection of interior comforts, there is no minivan better equipped to take care of your family. Take a look at this side-by-side comparison with the 2016 Kia Sedona, and see for yourself how impressive the Sienna is with a test drive at Marietta Toyota.


With seating for eight, the new Toyota Sienna is equipped to cart the whole family — and some friends — from Marietta to Smyrna and beyond. Its 3.5L V6 engine gives it 296 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque, and its standard front-wheel drive train works to make sure that your ride is confident, assured, and effortlessly smooth. The Sienna also features an anti-vibration sub-frame body, which reflects this commitment to a graceful, quiet ride as well. This makes it an enjoyably experience, but its twist-beam rear suspension and 119.3-inch wheelbase makes it a capable experience. And with a selection of active safety features like enhanced vehicle stability control, smart stop technology, and Safety Connect roadside assistance, the Sienna guarantees you’re in safe hands.

And with an independent multi-link rear suspension, the Sedona is less equipped to balance a smooth ride with a capable one, and it lacks the nuanced handling of the Sienna. Likewise, the Sedona does possess safety features like electronic stability control and cornering brake control, but it lacks the wide selection and high-quality of safety features that the Sienna offers.
