The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Of the available minivans, the 2009 Kia Sedona is one of the most affordable, but it doesn't skimp on what counts for families. Provided you don't expect too much of a zoom-zoom feel, the 2008 Mazda Mazda5 is one of the few good choices for buyers looking for minivan spaciousness in a vehicle that's especially fuel-efficient and maneuverable.
