Few vehicles are both loved and despised as much as the minivan. As models of how to move passengers and cargo safely, comfortably, and economically, they’ve found a loyal base of buyers. But they’re also hated — including by some of those same loyal buyers — for being just short of anonymous. Despite how several automakers have allowed their minivan models to slide out of the limelight, minivans are still a very significant chunk of the new-vehicle market, with still more than a million sold per year in theU.S.

 

The Kia Sedona was originally introduced for the U.S. market for 2002, with a design that was successful for its impressive value even if it wasn’t quite up to the standards of refinement, packaging, and performance of top-sellers like the Honda Odyssey, Chrysler minivans, and the Toyota Sienna. Kia isn’t settling for good enough, though, as it’s already introducing a completely new design for the Sedona for ’06.

 

With a quick look at the outgoing Sedona’s specs, it’s easy to see why it wasn’t quite competitive performance-wise — it was a heavyweight, at over 4800 pounds, and so its otherwise generous 195 horsepower was only adequate. To start, the new Sedona was designed with weight savings as one of the priorities, and engineers managed to shed more than 400 pounds despite larger dimensions and increased standard equipment.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
