Expert Quotes:

Impressive cornering limits (which will rarely, if ever, be explored in the real world)
Kelley Blue Book

commendable cornering feel offers confidence enough to weave around the road's unexpected obstructions
Edmunds




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.

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.

 

Conclusion

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

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.
