Kia debuted the Sedona in 2002 as the least expensive minivan on the market that year. It had all the essentials families wanted and few frills. In 2006 the Sedona received a full upgrade which greatly improved passenger room, engine power, and driver safety. Over the ensuing years, it improved slowly but did not take the lead in its class. The Sedona took a year off in 2013 and reappeared in 2014 with a few changes, still a solid, if not top, contender in the minivan class.
Buyers looking for a simple minivan design with a comfortable cabin and excellent warranty will appreciate the Sedona. Those who want more tech and comfort options in a more sophisticated cabin often go with a competing brand.
