2015 Kia Sedona

Out of curiosity, I also looked up our lifetime fuel economy for the long-departed 2011 Honda Odyssey and 2011 Toyota Sienna minivans we had in the test fleet. Both were more efficient than our Sedona. We drove about 1,500 miles last month in our 2015 Kia Sedona. As the month had a balanced mix of city and highway driving, we didn’t change our van’s lifetime average at all. In fact, it’s fair to say that we’ve zeroed in on what our van’s going to get us with more than 17,000 miles on the odometer now.

For the month in our Sedona, we notched up 18.2 mpg. That’s effectively the same as our lifetime average, which is holding steady at 18.1 mpg.

Our Odyssey posted 20.8 mpg and our Sienna had 19.6 mpg. Percentage-wise, that’s about a 15 percent advantage for the Odyssey compared to the Sedona.

If you are buying a minivan, how important would you consider fuel economy to be?
