The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.0
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 Nissan Quest may have the best road manners of any minivan, but it lags in safety and space, two musts for most minivan buyers.
