KBB Editors' Overview

By Scott Oldham -- Contributing Editor

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. Available in five trim levels, the 2018 Kia Sedona fits a range of budgets, and with a starting price under $28,000, it’s less expensive than the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna. All five are powered by a strong 276-horsepower 3.3-liter V6 and smooth 6-speed automatic transmission, a combination that gives the front-wheel-drive Sedona ample acceleration. The new Sedona also offers a smooth ride, a well-crafted interior and a much longer warranty than the Chrysler Pacifica. Many high-tech safety systems are available, including Autonomous Emergency Braking and Blind Spot Detection. When equipped with Forward Collision Warning, the new Sedona earns a Top Safety Pick + rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

You'll Like This Car If...

If you’re looking for a stylish family hauler with a smooth ride, a comfortable interior and the highest safety ratings you’ll like the 2018 Kia Sedona. It’s also a strong value, with a cavernous interior, a powerful V6 engine, a class-leading warranty and a starting price around $28,000.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you’re looking for an all-wheel-drive minivan you’re looking in the wrong place. Only the Toyota Sienna offers all-wheel drive in this class. Also, the Kia Sedona is not offered as a hybrid. The only hybrid in the minivan class is the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, and it is the most fuel-efficient minivan available.

What's New for 2018

Changes to the new Kia Sedona for 2018 are limited to a few new available colors. Silky Silver replaces Bright Silver, Celestial Blue replaces Midnight Sapphire and Beachwood Pearl is no longer available.

Driving It Driving Impressions

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. You’ll be surprised how much this van likes to get thrown around. And it has plenty of power. The large 3.3-liter V6 has a strong kick off the line and its 276 horsepower give it a satisfying surge of passing power out on the highway. Steep grades, even when the Sedona is packed with people and possessions, are not a problem.

Favorite Features

Optional on the SX and standard on the SX Limited trim levels, the Around View Monitor makes parking and maneuvering the 2018 Kia Sedona much easier, especially in tight spaces. It uses cameras mounted around the minivan’s exterior to provide the driver with a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of the vehicle and its surroundings.

Optional on the 2018 Kia Sedona LX, EX and SX, and standard on the top SX Limited trim level, this system reads the road ahead for obstacles in your path, including vehicles or pedestrians. If it determines a collision is imminent and the Sedona’s driver is not taking action, it will apply the brakes for you.
