Kia Sedona Overview

Missing for one year, the aging Sedona returns as a 2014 model. It has many features for the money but falls short overall. Controls are simple to use, fit and finish is good, and the cabin is has flexible storage capabilities. The 3.5-liter V6 and six-speed transmission provide spirited acceleration and par-for-the-course fuel economy. Handling is secure but not agile, the ride is stiff, and the driving position is flawed. Seating is limited to seven people instead of the more useful eight, and accessing the third row is a chore. Reliability has been below average. A redesign is due later this year.
