The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The aging Kia Sedona still offers the usual minivan virtues of people-carrying and cargo-toting, but there are newer, more flexible, safer choices. It's not as flexible as some minivans, but the 2012 Toyota Sienna is large, safe, and still has options for four-cylinder power and all-wheel drive.
