The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Kia Sedona is a viable alternative to the four top-selling minivans, with a quiet and spacious interior, a very comfortable high-end seating option, a smooth ride, and a modern infotainment system. The 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan is an exceptional value among minivans, but some crash-test scores are cause for concern.
