Kia Sedona
6 of 11

Sales: 24,730
Percent change: +8.8 percent
Starting price: $22,990
Why it's a winner: low sticker, rebates, best-in-class sales improvement

The Kia Sedona is the only minivan on the U.S. market with 2009 sales better than 2008, according to AutoData Corp. The biggest-selling minivans are the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, Dodge Caravan, and Chrysler Town & Country, but their sales all are down by at least 30 percent this year. The U.S. recession has probably helped Kia, with buyers looking for a bargain. On top of a low sticker price, Kia has been offering rebates on the Sedona.
