The Kia Sedona comes in two trim levels: The LX basic trim level, and the EX trim level with extra bells and whistles. Both trims have a V6 217hp engine and 6 speed continuously variable automatic transmission. The LX comes standard with power locks, power mirrors, power windows, tri-zone air conditioning, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth connectivity, and advanced antilock brakes. The EX bumps things up a notch, offering additional features such as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, power sliding doors, a six-way power front passenger’s seat, and rear DVD entertainment system.
Despite its family-friendly pricing and wide variety of standard features, the Kia Sedona is not at the top of its segment, due to its glaring lack of style. Vehicles such as the Honda Odyssey, Nissan Quest, Chrysler Town and Country and Toyota Sienna continue to dominate the minivan segment with classy exterior lines, refreshed interiors, and luxury car amenities. Facing stiff competition and losing out in the style department, the Kia Sedona continues to lag behind its competitors. Yet it still remains a solid choice for families less concerned with flair and more concerned with affordability, as other models in the segment cost much more than the Sedona.
The EX trim level gives minivan drivers the feel of driving a luxury car. It comes with 17-inch aluminum wheels, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, fog lights, heated mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and power sliding side doors and tailgate. A backup camera and rearview mirror display aid in parking. Buyers who have some flexibility in their budget can take advantage of luxury and entertainment packages, which provide bonuses such as a power sliding sunroof, engine immobilizer, leather seat trim, rear seat wireless headsets and remote control, and a complete in-dash navigation system.
The base level Kia has no shortage of interior features to keep drivers entertained. The model comes standard with 16-inch covered steel wheels, steering wheel mounted audio controls, dual sliding rear doors, manual rear vent windows and cruise control. New for the LX is a rear-seat entertainment system previously available only in the EX trim. Tech lovers will appreciate the SIRIUS Satellite Radio, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, and auxiliary and USB inputs for smart phone use. Ample front and side airbags, tire pressure monitoring system, electric stability control, and anti-lock brakes complete the top-rated safety features available.
