2014 Kia Sedona Performance

7.0
Performance

The 2014 Kia Sedona has a powertrain performance that's plenty quick, as well as handling that's just engaging enough for what most people will expect in a minivan. It's not as athletic and nimble-feeling as the Honda Accord, but certainly not short on responsiveness.

A 269-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 and six-speed automatic transmission sends power to the front wheels and offers relatively smooth, strong acceleration--although as with the rest of the Kia lineup, the accelerator can be a little touchy.

Powertrain performance for the Sedona is strong, but it's not a particularly athletic handler.

Both versions now include Sportmatic manual control. A hydraulic power-assist steering system, multi-link rear suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes all add up to what we've noted in past model years is a pretty comfortable ride but handling that's safe but uninspired.
