We've found the Kia Sedona to operate just underneath the surface of more popular family haulers like the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna.
The Sedona is just as adept at moving kids and gear as the other two, but isn't as versatile or as attractive those can be.
Admittedly, we're smitten with the Chrysler Pacifica, something we like very much—even in base trim–but it can be very pricey in top trims.
We’re also fans of the latest Odyssey, which has great road manners and a flexible cabin.
The Sienna offers all-wheel drive, and the Odyssey boasts some great common sense features like a vacuum, but the Sedona holds its own in value.
Dodge still sells a Grand Caravan, if you’re looking for the least expensive van you can buy, but crash safety and features are way behind the times.
If not a minivan, why not a great crossover like the Honda Pilot? It’s a minivan in most ways, save for the side doors.
