The staff at Edmunds.com tested the current version of the Sedona for a year and raved about it. Their typical comments wondered why more people weren't buying a Sedona over the much more popular Sienna or Odyssey. Frankly, it seemed obvious to me since Kia/Hyundai did not have the best reputation among Asian automakers. But the fact is this company has made huge strides in quality production in the past few years and their cars are now serious contenders. We decided to check out the Sedona after reading the Edmunds blog and talking to friends who own one. After the test drive, we were convinced, too. The Sedona drives like a sports car, with tight steering and a lively suspension. The V6 engine has a surprising amount of kick. Yet on a 2,500 mile round trip vacation this summer we consistently got 25 combined MPG. We love the seating configurations and storage capacity, especially the cargo well in the back that holds the rear seats when they're folded flat. The air conditioning is super-powerful, the brakes are flawless, and the other controls are mostly intuitive and thoughtfully arranged. We would like the front seats to be a bit more comfortable for the long hauls, and some of the controls and interior materials seem to be lacking in quality. But overall we're very pleased about our decision to go with the Sedona. I urge any family in need of a minivan not to pass it up as you make your choice.

the kia sedona is a very comfortable vehicle. it is quite roomy. however, it is sad to say that my old 1991 toyota previa gets better gas mileage plus came with a full sized spare tire.
Best Value for 7 passengers or more.

Saftey, value and comfort. The ease of use of the van is outstanding. The technology and innovations in this van ate amazing. After 2 months we are still discovering all the little things Kia has added that make this van so easy to drive and park. The saftey features are to many to list all of them.
What a joy to drive. More features than we thought we could afford, more luxury and more joy than we thought we would get for the price.
Safe, comfortable, and fun.
