SAFETY | 7 out of 10
The 2014 Kia Sedona doesn't miss any safety points, but its crash-test performance in past years hasn't been in the top tier and we don't expect the modest changes made as this older model is carried over for another year.
That said, safety equipment is good, with standard items including anti-lock brakes; stability and traction control; and front, side, and side curtain airbags (that cover all three rows of seats). A backup warning system is also a standard feature in the base LX. Outward visibility isn't great compared to other vans, but it's better than most taller crossovers.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) hasn't extended any ratings to the 2014 Sedona, and there was no 2013 Sedona; but going back to the 2012 model, a cause for concern was its 'poor' roof strength rating. The federal government recently retested the Sedona, though, and it still stands up well, with five-star ratings across the board.
The 2014 Kia Sedona has all the safety basics expected in a minivan--but its older structure might put it a step behind in crash tests.
