"Minivan" is a poor moniker for today's short-nosed family haulers. Take the 2018 Kia Sedona. At 201 inches long, it out-measures a Cadillac XTS sedan. Put it on the scales, and the reading will be shockingly close to two and half tons. Yes, the days of the truly "mini" van ended during the Bush administration, but that isn't a bad thing. All that acreage means the Sedona offers ample room for anything you can stuff in it, from people to plywood. Space is king in minivans – even if they have to become maxivans to get it.
