When it comes to styling, the 2008 Kia Sedona minivan is plain but well proportioned. Detailing is minimal. The most notable thing about its look is that it’s available in two body lengths, unlike most other minivans on the market today.
Generally, reviewers approve of the Kia Sedona 2008 styling. A test driver at Mother Proof comments that the Kia Sedona "lured me with its cute looks...it seemed more stylish and better-looking than other minivans." MyRide.com has this to say: "the [Kia] Sedona looks classy and stylish...if the 2008 Kia Sedona's styling isn't unique, it is clean and crisp, and classy." Kelley Blue Book agrees, at least on the idea that the Kia Sedona's styling isn't unique, remarking, "Except for its vertical taillamps, the 2008 Kia Sedona doesn't carry itself much differently than a Toyota Sienna, which wouldn't be impossible to mistake for a Honda Odyssey."
Inside, the Sedona is just as straightforward in terms of style and function, and reviewers were less than impressed with it. Car and Driver notes that "some of the interior trim is cheap-looking," while Kelley Blue Book observes that the Kia Sedona 2008 has "wood-look trim that's reminiscent of wood-paneled wagons and dens from the Brady Bunch era." And although ConsumerGuide says that all controls in the cockpit "are within easy reach, are nicely sized, and are clearly marked," J.D. Power proclaims, "If there's evidence showing how Kia is able to undercut Honda and Toyota on price, the interior is where you’ll find it."
