The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Kia Sedona is one of the least expensive minivans on the market, but inexpensive is different than cheap. Provided you don't expect too much of a zoom-zoom feel, the 2008 Mazda Mazda5 is one of the few good choices for buyers looking for minivan spaciousness in a vehicle that's especially fuel-efficient and maneuverable.
