What used Kia Sedona MPV will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Kia Sedona MPV?
The Sedona gives you a lot of space for the price, especially the cheap V6 petrol version. All in all, that's probably the main reason people are attracted to a Sedona. However, it isn't such a bargain to run.
For a start, the V6 is likely to manage only 25mpg or so - and that will drop quickly if you like to hurry or drive in stop-start traffic.
The diesel fares noticeably better - reckon on mid-30s with sensible driving - but you have to balance the saving in fuel costs against the higher initial purchase price. For low-mileage drivers, the diesel may not make financial sense.
Insurance won't be too hefty, though - group 10 or 11, depending on trim level. And, that's just as well, because this is not a cheap car to maintain.
Typical service costs over three years are among the highest for a big seven-seater and will be hundreds dearer than, say, a Ford Galaxy, Citroen C8 or Renault Espace.
