The Kia Sedona may not be the best looking or most stylish people carrier around, but it's great value with a spacious interior, rear sliding doors and a good level of standard equipment on all models. The considerable size means there's plenty of room for passengers in the back and seven seats come as standard (the rear ones can be removed completely).

The Kia Sedona may not be the best looking or most stylish people carrier around, but it's great value with a spacious interior, rear sliding doors and a good level of standard equipment on all models. The considerable size means there's plenty of room for passengers in the back and seven seats come as standard (the rear ones can be removed completely). However it's not daunting to drive and a tight turning circle means tricky manoeuvres are pretty easy. Unsurprisingly, it's the strong diesel engine which is the most popular choice. Along with a smooth ride, even on rough roads, it means the Sedona is a comfortable and relaxed long distance family car. It was made even better in January 2010 when a seven-year warranty replaced the previous three year scheme.

What owners say...

 It has 7 full sized seats and they are removable. The seats dont fold down into the floor but this does give you much more room when in load shifter mode. The Galaxy and others that fold still take up...

 The interior space and versatility (when seats do move; see faults above) is superb making it a comfortable vehicle for a large family of 6 plus baggage.
