The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Kia Sedona is one of the least expensive minivans on the market, but inexpensive is different than cheap. The 2008 Toyota Sienna minivan does almost everything right for the family, with a roomy, functional interior and great ride comfort, but there’s not a lot of personality.
