The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you like what minivans provide but don’t appreciate the looks of most of them, you might still keep the 2009 Nissan Quest on your shopping list. The 2008 Kia Sedona is one of the least expensive minivans on the market, but inexpensive is different than cheap.
