Kia’s only minivan was recently given the “Ultimate Minivan” title from and MotorWeek after coming out on top during the website’s Ultimate Minivan Challenge. During this challenge, the Sedona went through a grueling, multi-day comparison test with the rest of its segment. The results of this challenge were then combined with real-world opinions from car shoppers that are currently on the market.

When it came to refinement and quality, the Kia Sedona outshone the competition. The runner up in the Challenge was the 2015 Toyota Sienna, which was followed by the 2015 Honda Odyssey, 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan, and finally, the 2015 Chrysler Town & Country.

The Sedona’s newest award follows on the heels of another award. This popular minivan recently received the J.D. Power APEAL award, which measures how satisfying it is to own a certain vehicle. As the minivan continues to rake in the awards, we can only wonder—is it finally cool to own a minivan again?

If it’s the Kia Sedona, it sure looks like it is.
