The Kia Sedona is a sort of outlier in the Kia lineup, because of all the brand's vehicles, this van has never been updated with the modern, Euro-chic look that has drawn new buyers in.
So that puts it at a disadvantage next to nearly every other minivan on the market.
The Honda Odyssey is the most recently updated of these vans; it has top safety ratings in every category, better fuel economy than the Sedona, and more engaging handling, plus a more versatile layout.
But it's more expensive.
The Dodge Grand Caravan and Toyota Sienna both offer more easily reconfigurable layouts, too.
Meanwhile the Nissan Quest has excellent passenger comfort, a smooth powertrain, and almost a luxury-vehicle feel inside.
Mazda's Mazda5 is a true minivan, and it's a unique alternative in the market, offering good fuel economy and an eager, nimble driving feel while still packing in seating for six and a price tag that's lower than that of these other vans.
