There are few minivans, crossovers, or SUVs that drive as well as the sporty Mazda5.
Even the short-wheelbase 2009 Kia Sedona is larger than the Mazda5.
If you don't mind a peppy four-cylinder engine, then the Mazda5 is worth a test drive.
However, the Sienna doesn't drive with the same enthusiastic personality as the Honda or the Mazda5.
If you're shopping around but know you want a refined, high-quality driving experience, then the Honda Odyssey is the minivan for you.
The base Honda will be thousands of dollars more expensive than the least expensive Kia, so be prepared.
For those responsible for keeping kids happy while on the road, the vast number of features on the all-new Dodge Caravan makes this minivan a standout achiever.
The Dodge also offers in-floor storage and seating options not available on the Kia.
