2015 Kia Sedona
Transcending mundane functionality, the wide stance and European-inspired design of the new Sedona exudes a modern, CUV-like exterior appearance highlighted by a front fascia and cab-forward look that project confidence and strength. The Sedona’s muscular face and clean, smooth overall appearance is highlighted by a fully integrated version of Kia’s signature grille and headlamps with LED positioning lights.
This new Kia Sedona also offers the choice of second row “First Class” lounge seating that can be positioned rearward for astonishing legroom and provides retractable lower leg rests. And while some configurations feature segment-unique second-row seat cushion heaters for added comfort, all 2015 Sedona models offer a third-row that provides the convenience of a split folding 60/40 in-floor retractable design.
The Sedona’s sophisticated interior design theme is brought to life with a modern color palette featuring solid or two-tone color options in beige, gray and burgundy for a warm and inviting atmosphere. Building on the next-generation UVO Infotainment & Telematics system, the all-new Sedona is the first Kia to offer four new eServices features: Geo-fencing, Speed Alert, Curfew Alert and Driving Score.
Under the hood, a new Lambda Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) 3.3-liter V-6 engine replaces the 3.5-liter V-6 found in the previous generation Sedona. The 3.3-liter engine delivers more power than its predecessor, boasting 276 horsepower at 6,000 rpm, and it has been tuned for enhanced mid-range torque. The V-6 engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission tuned for balanced control, power and efficiency. Base model estimated miles per gallon: 18/24. Estimated starting price: $25,900.
