The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Kia Sedona is a spacious, comfortable family van, but it lacks the modern design flair and high-value presentation that marks the rest of the brand's lineup. With the best flexibility and infotainment in the minivan world, the 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan also satisfies families with great safety scores and good gas mileage.
