2015 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 2015 Kia Sedona is redesigned on an all-new platform with a new V6 engine, crossover-SUV-like styling, and new technology features. Highlights of the model 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. The topline Limited model has reclining “First Class Lounge” second-row seats. The new 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.
