The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Kia Sedona brings a stronger seating and infotainment game to the minivan niche, and almost closes the refinement gap in the process. The Nissan Quest isn't the safest or most practical vehicle in the segment, but it is one of the better driver's choices.
