I call this the un-minivan because it feels way more like a crossover to drive than a minivan. It handles well for a vehicle of its size, and has plenty of get up and go! This is a fully loaded Sedona - heated and cooled front seats, overhead camera system, heated steering wheel, two large sun roofs, two Napa leather all the way around, 19" chrome wheels, adaptive cruise control, rear cross traffic alert, lane departure warning, and the list goes on. There are a few things that I was surprised that the Sedona does not have that my 2015 Hyundai Sonata does have considering that they have basically the same Vehicle Management console. We are missing a tire pressure monitoring system that displays all four tires in real time, electronic parking brake with auto hold, and the Stop & Go feature in the adaptive cruise control (the Sedona will automatically turn the system off if you are in bumper-to-bumper traffic or not maintaining the desired speed for certain amount of time whereas in the Sonata, it will stay on until you turn it off). Aside from those missing features and a bit of a stiff ride, an excellent overall value and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the market for a 7 passenger crossover or a minivan. The only reason I gave it 4 stars for quality is because the first time I had to open the hood, I couldn't get it closed again because the hood latch needed some lubrication. A quick trip to the dealer resolved that in 5 minutes.
