The Kia Sedona minivan has become a contender in the segment by offering value and safety. The second-generation Sedona raises the bar by increasing its size, power and usability features to match those of the class-leading Sienna and Odyssey. Under the hood is a 3.8L V6 that produces 240hp. It is mated to a standard 5-speed automatic. A chassis with a fully-independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes ensure the Sedona will be more sure-footed. The Sedona offers many minivan extras like power-operated side doors and tailgate, fold-flat 3rd row seating, power side windows, and an optional DVD-based entertainment package. A starting price of around $24,000 for an LX is competitive but option packages on the EX model can push the price past $30,000 for a fully-loaded model. At that price, the Sedona is still thousands less than the Sienna and Odyssey.
All-new Sedona is longer, wider and more powerful than the model it replaced. Under the hood is a 3.8L V6 that produces 240hp. An all-new chassis features a fully-independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. A number of new features are added to stay competitive with the class-leading Sienna and Odyssey minivans.
"The all-new Sedona offers considerable upgrades, not just in styling and appearance, but in practical applications such as horsepower, safety equipment and standard and available features that will make it fully competitive in the segment with such vehicles as the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna." -- Peter Butterfield, president of Kia Motors America, Inc.
