TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Kia Sedona

Kia Sedona Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
Most Kia Sedonas earn EPA ratings of 18 mpg city, 24 mpg highway. This is just a bit worse than the Sienna's 18/25, but well below the Odyssey's 19/28, at least on the highway. But the SX Limited, with more heft and different tires, rates only 17/22, the lowest of any current minivan. In my real-world sub-freezing driving the trip computer reported averages between 16 and 21 in the suburbs (depending on the number of stops, amount of traffic, whether the engine was already warmed up, etc.) and about 25 on the highway. The Sienna managed about the same--but with all-wheel-drive. A front-wheel-drive Toyota should do a little better. In somewhat warmer weather, the Odyssey managed as high as 25 on my standard home-to-school run. see full Kia Sedona review

18mpg in the city - typical for minivans but not good see full Kia Sedona review

Er, economy is not the right word to use here. It gulps fuel, even when driven fairly carefully. see full Kia Sedona review

Other mini-van that we considered had a better fuel economy rating [but really not by much]. see full Kia Sedona review
