2018 Kia Sedona

Pros: Spacious third row, versatile second-row seats on higher-end models, broad range of available comfort and convenience features, crossover-like styling is a bit more dynamic than some minivans

Cons: Not as much maximum cargo volume as class rivals, third-row seat is a bit cumbersome to fold into the floor, middling fuel-economy numbers

CG Says: The 2018 Kia Sedona is unchanged. Kia’s minivan seats seven or eight passengers. Highlights of the Sedona include a peppy 276-horsepower 3.3-liter V6, nicely finished interior, and available second-row seats that flip and fold forward to maximize cargo room. Available safety features include blind-spot alert, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, and lane-departure warning. The top line SX Limited model has optional reclining “First Class Lounge” second-row seats. The Sedona doesn’t outshine its more-established class rivals in any one area, but it is still a classy, well-executed contender that’s worth a look.
