The Kia Sedona may not be the first name you think of when shopping for a minivan, but it's definitely been one that should be considered. Right out of the gate, the Sedona has everything needed to be a success in the minivan segment.
The Kia Sedona is available in LX and EX trim levels, even the most basic Kia Sedona comes with a full complement of safety features, rear parking sensors, front and rear climate controls, keyless entry, full power features, satellite radio, Bluetooth and a USB audio jack. The Kia Sedona EX gets additional power-operated features, and it can be further equipped with leather, a DVD entertainment system, a navigation system and a rearview camera.
Power comes from a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 271 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic is standard. This makes the Kia Sedona a rather swift minivan.
The Kia Sedona minivan seats seven passengers, with second-row captain's chairs and a 60/40-split third row that folds into the floor. Sized on par with most other minivans, the Sedona offers plenty of legroom for all three rows. Maximum cargo is generous at 142 cubes, and plenty of cubbies abound for quick stowage of things like cell phones, purses and snacks.
Consumers have praised the Kia Sedona for its comfortable seating, roomy cabin, quiet ride and high crash test scores. Only minor detail changes, such as slight revisions to the grille and taillights, occurred during the Sedona's run, so condition and mileage should be the chief considerations when shopping for one.
