What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The Sedona has stacks of space, a good diesel engine and sliding rear doors

Against The petrol engine is thirsty and the cabin isn't especially versatile compared with other MPVs

Verdict This big, practical load-hauler is cheap to buy, but not quite so cheap to run

Go for… 2.9 diesel

Avoid… 2.5 V6 petrol

Kia Sedona MPV
  • 1. Inspect the interior trim for signs of abuse; and check the carpets, which can become bobbly quickly
  • 2. Any engine can give trouble, but checking the oil's condition and looking for exhaust smoke can show up potential problems
  • 3. The Sedona is a roomy, unpretentious seven-seater with, at best, mediocre road manners
  • 4. Inspect all the bodywork for rust, especially the seams
  • 5. The sliding rear doors can be a problem, so ensure they work properly
