Expert Quotes:

Five stars, front and side impacts; four stars, rollover rating

Top Safety Pick

Visibility rearward from the driver's seat is especially good

Because of high crash-test scores, the 2008 Kia Sedona earns a superior safety rating from states that the Kia Sedona "has achieved a five-star crash certification in all seating positions from the Federal government, and a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety," and includes the "mandated frontal airbags," noting that "the Kia Sedona 2008 front passenger airbag turns itself off if a child is in the seat." reports, "Seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags that protect outboard occupants in all three rows of seats are standard" on every 2008 Kia Sedona model, while "all-disc antilock brakes incorporate electronic brake-force distribution."

More safety features are available with the EX trim, according to Kelley Blue Book: "Stepping up to the Sedona EX adds fog lights...[and an] auto-dimming rearview mirror."

Visibility is excellent all around. points out that "the thick windshield pillars can impede visibility to front corners, but there are clear sightlines elsewhere." says, "Visibility rearward from the 2008 Kia Sedona's driver's seat is especially good, an important contribution to safety, because the rear window is as big as it can be, and the headrests over the five rear seats sink down to the tops of the seats."


The 2008 Kia Sedona is a great value in terms of travel safety.

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.
