2015 Kia Sedona

2015 Kia Sedona Release Date

Most growing families have one thing in common — a tight budget. With several mouths to feed, clothes to buy, and rides to supply, moms and dads need a reliable vehicle that provides the space and comfort their families need, but it also needs to come at an affordable price. In recent years, few automakers have struck the balance of quality and affordability as well as Kia. And with news of a redesign for the 2015 model year, the 2015 Kia Sedona release date approaches with much anticipation for many families looking to upgrade their mode of transportation. When the 2015 Kia Sedona does arrive in dealerships around October, you can expect a minivan prepared to compete for top-of-class status. (more…)

As we scoured Kia’s press release about the next-generation minivan, we came across the next-generation UVO Infotainment System, which will begin becoming part of more Kia models moving forward.

First look at the next-generation Kia Sedona

Next-generation Kia Sedona

Next-generation Kia Sedona

Look, we realize minivans aren’t the coolest vehicles on the road. In fact, there are a lot of car shoppers that avoid minivans altogether, no matter how practical they are. While the current Kia Sedona is supremely practical, it lacks the exterior appeal of the rest of the Kia lineup. After being completely absent from the lineup in the 2013 model year, the Sedona returned for 2014, but with the subtlest of changes. For the 2015 model year, Kia is moving the Sedona forward as the automaker will unveil the the next-generation model at the New York Auto Show later this month. (more…)

2014 Kia Sedona

2014 Kia Sedona Cargo Capacity

The minivan and families live in perfect harmony and are fairly dependent on one another. Without large families, the demand for minivans would be significantly reduced if not eliminated altogether. And if minivans didn’t exist, families would have to resort to stuffing their kids and all their gear into large SUVs, which simply don’t offer the space minivans do. Certainly, the minivan is the ideal vehicle for large families due to its passenger space and available cargo. The 2014 Kia Sedona in Joliet IL is one of the most affordable and practical minivans on the road and its cargo capacity is one of the things mom, dad, and the kids will love most. (more…)

2014 Kia Sedona Joliet IL

2014 Kia Sedona

The 2014 Kia Sedona is a smart, economical choice in the minivan segment.

While it may not have an internal vacuum cleaner or the expensive bells and whistles of some new minivans, the 2014 Kia Sedona remains a practical and economic choice for families looking for an seven-passenger people mover. And although it’s not known for its amenities, the 2014 Kia Sedona in Joliet IL still offers plenty of interior tech and creature comforts.

Despite minivans’ reputation for being sluggish and tired, the 2014 Kia Sedona is powered by a 269-horsepower 2.5-liter V-6 engine that generates 246 pound-feet or torque. That powertrain pairs to a six-speed automatic transmission that helps propel the Sedona to EPA-estimated fuel economy of 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway/20 mpg combined. (more…)

2014 Kia Sedona Interior

The new, yet somewhat familiar, Kia Sedona will feature a handful of interior upgrades from its predecessor.

After a one year hiatus, the Kia Sedona minivan is returning for the 2014 model year with some revamped interior features and upgrades throughout. The new Kia Sedona returns with the base LX and the upscale EX trims and represents an excellent value for minivan shoppers with practicality and affordability.

What’s New

Since we last saw the Sedona in the 2012 model year, it has received some nice stylistic touches and upgrades. First and most noticeably is the new front grille, which is wider and more pronounced than its predecessor. Additionally, the new Kia Sedona features 17-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels on the EX trim, but overall the familiar Kia Sedona look remains intact. (more…)
