Pros & cons


Good equipment levels, easy to manoeuvre, hugely spacious interior, seven seats as standard


Boxy and dull styling, limited boot space

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.
