Roominess, calm and comfort
Like your children, the 2017 Kia Sedona is extremely wise. Other minivan owners would be impressed with the calm and comfort inside, and the way it behaves both in the city and on the road. Its 3.3-liter V6 isn’t a mpg champion, but smoothly hitting highway speeds has never been a challenge, even on shorter ramps. It’s not a sports car, but if that’s your main focus in a minivan, you’re probably in the wrong marriage.
While ultimately not quite as spacious as a Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna, the Sedona is good enough to make room when needed. The second row can accommodate both child and adult seats, and Kia’s smart Slide-N-Stow feature will store the second row seats vertically against the first row backrests so you can make full use of the seat. loading space and open access to the third row. Behind that third row is a large, sunken storage space under the floor that will secure and swallow loads of groceries or trash you don’t want to shake, and it will swallow the third row seats when you fold them down for create a flat floor.
The long-term value of daily utility
As a closing story for our long-term Kia Sedona SX said it, “Being a minivan, the Sedona ended up going into service whenever a road trip was involved, whenever there were a lot of passengers to carry, or if someone pulled out. was moving. ” The Sedona slammed each of those tasks with grace, even going so far as give birth to a newborn at home with our video guru, Micah Muzio. And on moving day, Associate Editor-in-Chief Allyson Harwood found that the Kia’s low lift height and usable rear cargo space helped it load crates, a portable air conditioner and tall cabinet.
The best Sedona you can buy for your family
The Sedona bargain is to be the 8-passenger LX model, a step up from the base model. This still starts at under $ 30,000, but includes power sliding side doors, an 8-way power driver’s seat with lumbar adjustment, a 6-speaker audio upgrade, and a private rear window.
It’s all pretty appealing, but the real value for well-being and safety comes when you add just two option sets to the Sedona LX: the LX Essentials Premium Package and the LX Advanced Technology Package. This combination of dreams come true raises the price of your Sedona LX to $ 34,045, which isn’t cheap, but it’s a lot less than what you would pay for the same feature set (if it is even available) on other minivans. The full feature list is longer than your arm, but here are some of the highlights: leather seat upholstery, heated front seats, push-button start, UVO3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency braking, intelligent cruise control, front / rear parking alert sensors and rear cross traffic alerts and, of course, blind spot and lane departure warning systems. Yours, all up to you.
