Safety; ride and handling; seating arrangement; value.
Kia has established their Sedona as a safety leader, with several standard safety features and important safety accolades, including the National Highway Traffic Administration's Five Star rating for all seating positions, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Top Safety Pick for 2006. As the model remains largely unchanged, these accomplishments should continue for 2008.
