The Kia Sedona has it going on. It’s a pretty sharp not-so-little package that comes together quite nicely. Plenty of power from its 276-pony V-6 – check.

Pretty slick, even down to its plush leather seats in the Limited trim.


Expect big things in 2017 from the Pacifica, in its first full year of sales. Despite hitting the market in mid-2016, the Pacifica managed to sell 62,366 units in the US. It could rival the top three…
