Sedona’s SUV-like styling and decidedly premium interior helped it top the segment full of long-standing stalwarts, while beating its competitors in criteria like technology, features, and drivetrains.

The Kia Sedona has positioned itself as the leading minivan in the industry, winning many other accolades ranging from the J.D. Power APEAL Award to the 2015 Autobytel Van/Minivan of the Year.
