All of these have the main practical advantages of spacious seating and storage space. Still, which one best suits your lifestyle? Let’s take a look at the details of specs and design to see which large 2018 Kia model is the right choice for you!

The 2018 Kia Sedona meanwhile has the most seats, biggest cargo space, and the largest fuel tank out of the 3.
