Editor's Overview

A favorite with families looking for a comfortable, versatile and safe minivan, the popular 2018 Kia Sedona is available with seating for seven or as many as eight passengers. With a starting price under $28,000, the new Kia Sedona is also less expensive than the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna and it has a much longer warranty than the Chrysler Pacifica.

About my Kia van that I just love.

Lots space for storage. Love the color burgundy. Rides great heated seats. Push button doors I love them and trunk button. Great on gas. Love the backup camera and the beep warning sound if I get too close to anything backing up. This is my second Kia van last one ran great sold it when it reached 279000 miles.

- Lori F

Safety is top notch Kia wide and the Sedona ex is the best for the money.

This is the 5th Kia I have owned. Kia as a whole builds a very safe, reliable and comfortable vehicle with a warranty that cannot be beat. My new 2018 Sedona has power everything, and a beautiful leather interior. We are getting 23 mpg in mountainous west Virginia. Kia is my make of vehicle.

- Marty G

The Kia Sedona can hold up to 8 people comfortably.

This is a great, cost efficient van. Only complaint is the speaker system when it comes to watching DVDs on the entertainment center. There are no speakers in the middle row, which is a problem to the individuals sitting there. They cannot hear without it being blared in the front as well.
