    Had some 1st hand interstate saddle time in a petrol 8seater Sedona not long ago. Almost 8k of blessed & trouble-free miles in 3weeks or so....was the lone driver, as always.Kia Sedona 2.2 Diesel - Is this best minivan? Is it better than Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna?
    Good rear luggage space. Served the people hauling chores well. Loaded 6-8pax most of that trip + packed luggage. Consistently 20mpg highway.
    Would I get a luxury variant if I wanted 1? No. Was the drive fun? Yes, more from the company & the route than the appliance itself. The expected driver & passenger comfort it did give though. Do I miss it? Not really. Reliability? Took that rental w/ 24k+ mi, returned w/ 32k on the clock...too soon to conclude for 1 that saw good roads, but it gave no tantrums. Was I grateful? Of course!Kia Sedona 2.2 Diesel - Is this best minivan? Is it better than Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna?Kia Sedona 2.2 Diesel - Is this best minivan?

    If one's looking for a people hauler that will be owner driven, the base Sedona should be in the mix. I won't go 11seater on this, if there is such an option. Maintenance & support? I have no experience w/ koreans locally. I hope they're good......Otherwise, to avoid regrets...there are always those proven Toyotas...the Innova, HiAce....or the Alphard.Kia Sedona 2.2 Diesel - Is this best minivan?

    That generation of kia carnival is more robust and the 2.2 liter engine is also used in sta fe and sorento...already proven reliable! I think the grey market carnival have the 8 speed auto while the local is only 6 speed.. not sure.. check with dealers..

    You might wanna rethink & factor the permanent new normal in. Carpooling may be a thing of the past.Kia Sedona 2.2 Diesel - Is this best minivan? Is it better than Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna?
    Might as well spend that moolah saved on a fun 2seater instead? No alibis needed to deny hitchers?Kia Sedona 2.2 Diesel - Is this best minivan? Is it better than Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna?Kia Sedona 2.2 Diesel - Is this best minivan? Is it better than Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna?
