5.0

Very spacious with lots of room for long trips.

We have a family of 5 with a dog. I traded in our 2020 Kia Sportage for the 2021 Kia Sedona. Now we can all fit comfortably in the 8 passenger Sedona which comes equipped with plenty of luggage space and removable seats. Very satisfied with this model not to mention I previously owned the 2016 Sedona and loved it then.

5.0

Good value

This car has room enough for eight and when you need the cargo space, the 3rd row seats fold away and the second row is easy to push forward. Lots of zip from the 6 cylinder engine, smooth ride.

5.0
