2014 Kia Sedona LX with power package
2014 Kia Sedona LX with power package
  • Price: $28,650
  • Macho factor: Affordable price and best warranty in the industry
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 17 mpg
    • Highway - 24 mpg highway

Only one other pick on this list managed to slide under the price of the Kia Sedona LX. Bankrate added in the optional power package primarily because it includes a backup camera, but this option's power-sliding rear doors and rear hatch add to the Sedona's user-friendliness.

Seating as many as seven, its second-row captain's chairs flip and fold for convenient third-row access. Folding flat into the floor, the third-row 60/40 split bench seat has about 32 cubic feet of cargo room behind it.

Delivering 269 horsepower to the front wheels by way of a six-speed driver-shiftable automatic transmission, the 3.5-liter V-6 boasts fuel economy of 20 mpg in combined city and highway driving.

You must step up to the EX model level to get extras such as a trip computer, a heated six-way power-adjustable driver's seat and a four-way power-adjustable passenger's seat, but the LX is nicely equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, satellite radio, MP3 connectivity and remote keyless entry.
