The 2021 Kia Sedona minivan sits across the good deal from extra attention-grabbing loved ones crossovers and autos. (That it shares the similar showroom as the Telluride crossover is just not honest, guy.)

Even now, some households can not escape the have to have for cozy transportation for two or extra little little ones. And for comfort, it is really hard to top a van. 

It earns a 5.7 TCC Rating, which is many thanks generally to its spacious interior. (Study extra about how we level automobiles.)

Kia still left the Sedona by yourself for 2021, which suggests like past calendar year, it is obtainable in L, LX, EX, and SX trim ranges for at least $29,000 all the way to extra than $forty two,000. 

The Sedona’s boxy physique covers a cavernous interior that seats up to 8 with a lot of cubbies for storage and units. 

Rivals these as the Honda Odyssey and Chrysler Pacifica seem improved, but the Sedona receives the basics ideal. Every single van is equipped with at least a 7.-inch touchscreen with smartphone computer software, Bluetooth connectivity, and very good place. 

We choose top trims like the EX and SX not only for their leather-based upholstery, but also since those are the only Sedonas that get active safety functions these as automatic crisis braking (optional on EX, and conventional on SX).

Every single van is powered by a 3.3-liter V-six that tends to make 276 horsepower and drives the entrance wheels only by way of an eight-velocity automatic transmission. Ability isn’t the Kia van’s contacting card, but it rides nicely and steers easily and returns about 21 mpg merged, in accordance to the EPA. 

Federal testers gave it generally top marks for crash safety, and the IIHS had generally very good things to say. 

Even though the van begins for considerably less than some competitors, the Sedona EX is the trim we’d choose for—but only after adding just about $5,000 in alternatives to incorporate lifesaving safety tech. That places our suggested van at about $40,000, which include spot, and ideal in the gun sights of improved vans from Honda and Chrysler. Not to point out that Telluride, too.
