BASE PRICE RANGE: $25,390-$29,990
BODY TYPE: Midsize Minivan
WHAT'S NEW: The 2011 Sedona gets a higher-tech 3.5L V-6 that offers 27 more hp than the 3.8L it replaces. Also, a 6A replaces last year's 5A. The combination helps improve fuel economy by 2 mpg on the highway. New styling cues include the tabbed signature Kia grille and new wheel designs, and the interior adds new technology features.
BEST BUY: A Sedona LX isn't luxuriously equipped, but still has plenty of standard and available features for under $30,000.
SUM UP: Vying to be best in class.
