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.
