An Intriguing Alternative to the Minivan Frontrunners
The Kia Sedona offers competitive refinement and features to go along with the attractive pricing and warranty we've come to expect from Kia. It's not quite as cavernous as perennial favorites Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna, and its predicted resale values also trail those standouts, but as a unique mix of style, features and value, the 2018 Kia Sedona is worth exploring.
"From behind the wheel the 2018 Kia Sedona is one of the most fun minivans to drive. It’s powerful, responsive and out on the road it magically feels smaller than it really is. Unlike some of its rivals, the Sedona doesn’t make you feel like you’re the captain of a cruise ship. The minivan’s ride quality is smooth and comfortable, but the Sedona also handles well, with quick steering, good balance and excellent body control. It doesn’t lean way over in the turns and it doesn’t feel tipsy or top-heavy." Get more driving insight in our 2018 Kia Sedona full review.
Cool Exclusive Features
The Slide-n-Stow seating arrangement offers expanded cargo capacity without having to remove any seats. The Surround View Monitor provides a 360-degree bird's-eye view of the Sedona that makes parking -- and un-parking -- easier. The Smart Power Liftgate allows you to open the rear hatch without touching a thing when your hands are full. And the top-line Sedona's Nappa leather is addictively soft.

Sedona owner and KBB.com visitor Big Blue has this to say about Kia's minivan: "I love the interior of this van, you feel like it should have cost alot more than it did. The dash layout is perfect and the shifter is positioned just where your right hand falls feeling almost like a manual. The controls are clear and intuitive. The van drives very well, I agree it might be a little stiff for some people's taste but I enjoy the fact that it feels like you are driving the car not just riding in it. The steering feels concise and there is very little body roll." Read more Kia Sedona consumer reviews.
Starting Around $28,000
The 2018 Kia Sedona starts at just under $28,000 and tops out beyond $43,000 loaded with Nappa leather, second-row lounge chairs and a bunch of safety and convenience tech. But those are sticker prices, and you should expect to pay less. How much less? Build and price your own 2018 Kia Sedona to unlock this week's Fair Purchase Price, 5-Year Cost to Own and more.
