TCC’s Bottom Line
If you're supporting a small business and need a scaled-down van to fit its needs, the 2012 Ford Transit Connect Wagon fits the bill. The aging Kia Sedona still offers the usual minivan virtues of people-carrying and cargo-toting, but there are newer, more flexible, safer choices.
