Kia Sedona

BASE PRICE RANGE: $22,200-$28,800*

WHAT'S NEW: The Sedona is available as a base-model short wheelbase or as a long-wheelbase minivan in LX or EX trims. The 3.8L V-6 was recalibrated for 2010 for improved refinement. There are new chrome accents inside and out, and the EX gets a new rear spoiler. A rearview backup camera is standard on the EX and optional on the rest of the line.

COOL FACT: One of very few minivans on the market offered in two wheelbase lengths.

SUM UP: BEST VALUE IN ITS CLASS.
