Pay more for what, exactly?

2011 Kia Sedona EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Our 2011 Kia Sedona is our second minivan (we have four children aged seven and under). Traded in a VW Passat wagon, and it hurt to say goodbye to our last car with any "coolness" factor. Our other minivan is a Toyota Sienna. The Sedona is an improvement upon the Passat in every way. Far more fun to drive, with great pickup and handling. We added leather, which makes it look sharp. The interior gives the impression of being larger than the Sienna's. And other than a higher sticker price, we are not sure what advantages the Sienna offers. The Kia's mileage around town is somewhat less than advertised--around 16 mpg--but it is up to the Toyota's quality in every other way. Safe and reliable.

Best Features

Backup camera. Alloy wheels. Power-lift back gate, power doors, power front seats (driver and passenger). Effortless "stow and go" third-row seating.

Worst Features

As always, Kia's plastics are obviously and unmistakably plastic. Their quality is fine--thick and unbreakable. But aesthetically, they are a cut below the competition's.
