Kia’s Award-Winning Sporty Minivan Recognized for Premium Amenities and Handsome Exterior Design Elements

The highly praised 2016 Sedona earns top-pick status with Autotrader as a vehicle that consumers must add to their test drive lists in 2016
Kia’s refined multi-purpose vehicle transcends conventional minivan design and supports elevated ownership experience.

Available in L, LX, EX, SX and SX Limited (SXL) trims and a choice of seven-passenger or eight-passenger seating configurations, the 2016 Sedona has something for everyone.  The Sedona comes standard with Kia’s proven 3.3-liter V6 engine, which puts out 276 horsepower and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission routed to the front wheels.  The Sedona sets itself apart in the segment as its wide stance exudes a modern, CUV-like appearance and cab-forward design.  Sedona offers a wide array of available driver-aid technology including Surround View Monitor, Smart Cruise Control, Blind Spot Detection and Lane Departure Warning1.  Inside the spacious cabin, Sedona combines generous use of soft-touch materials, premium amenities such as “First Class” lounge seating, and Kia’s UVO2 infotainment and telematics system.

“Even though the Kia Sedona is an ultra-functional minivan, it manages to be quite stylish as well, and to our eyes, it’s the best looking minivan available,” said Brian Moody, executive editor of AutoTrader. “The interior textures and available colors are excellent and that is backed up with a quiet comfortable ride that feels more like a luxury sedan than a family wagon.  All of our editors love the reclining second-row seats found in the SXL, and other high points that led us to our ‘unexpectedly good’ conclusion include a huge sunroof over the middle and third row seats plus tons of storage bins that make traveling with a family just a little easier.  Useful, stylish, affordable and packed with thoughtful features at every trim level, the Kia Sedona is simply an excellent family car no matter what else you’re considering.”
