The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Of the available minivans, the 2009 Kia Sedona is one of the most affordable, but it doesn't skimp on what counts for families. The 2008 Toyota Sienna minivan does almost everything right for the family, with a roomy, functional interior and great ride comfort, but there’s not a lot of personality.
