One of the benefits of a minivan is easy entry, and the Sedona doesn't disappoint.
some elements -- such as instrument bezels, rings and knobs -- feel a little flimsy, underscoring the advantage held by the Sedona's redesigned competitors

The 2014 Kia Sedona has plenty of interior room, and an interior that's spacious enough for seven; but it's not quite as delightful if you need to switch back and forth between carrying kids and other cargo.
There's nothing quite like Chrysler's trick Swivel n' Go seats (in the Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town and Country) or Honda's so-called Magic Seat (from the Odyssey) on the Sedona, but the third row is relatively easy to fold down and expand cargo. First- and second-row seats are quite comfortable, but as with most three-row vehicles the back row is tough to get to and will leave adults in a knees-up seated position.
Otherwise, the Sedona is simple and straightforward inside. It's been spruced up with a couple of updates over the years, yet relative to other models in its class the interior is a bit short on detailing.That said, there are plenty of functional, thoughtful details, like a dual-compartment glovebox, a very large center console, and eight cup holders in all.
We've found ride quality to be on of the strengths of the Sedona against its rivals; although there can be a bit of road noise on some surfaces, its highway ride especially is nicely controlled.
There's no clever seat-folding arrangement here, although the Sedona hits all the marks for family comfort.
