Overview

When shopping for a minivan, the Kia Sedona might not top your list of models to consider. The first two model generations trailed the segment leaders, but everything changed in 2015 with the release of the current model. For 2017, the Sedona remains a worthy contender in a segment dominated by bigger brands.

What's New for 2017

Newly available features include an acoustic windshield, adaptive headlamps, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Kia Sedona

Choosing Your Kia Sedona

The front-wheel drive Kia Sedona sits seven or eight and is available in L, LX, EX, SX, and SXL trim levels. Base prices run from $26,800 to $41,900. Add $895 to cover the destination charge.

All models are powered by a 3.3-liter V6 engine making 276 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. This engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 2017 Sedona has an EPA-rating as high as 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.

Standard equipment includes alloy wheels, automatic headlamps, and power adjustable side mirrors with turn signal indicators. Inside, this model comes with full power accessories, a tilt and telescopic steering column, cloth seats, and seating for seven. Air conditioning and a four-speaker audio system are standard.

Options vary, depending on trim. Some models offer rear seat entertainment ($1,095), remote start ($425), leather seat trim ($2,400), an Advanced Technology package ($1,900), and an Advanced Premium Technology package ($2,800). An Advanced Touring package ($3,900) is available on the SX only. The line-topping SXL is eligible for a Prestige package ($1,000) with a panoramic sunroof and upgraded seating.

Kia Sedona

L

The L seats seven and is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, a manual tailgate, manual sliding doors, and a chrome rear spoiler. You’ll also find an overhead console, a cargo lamp, 12 cup holders, and a four-speaker audio system with a CD player, satellite radio, Bluetooth, and a five-inch touchscreen with an integrated rearview camera display.

Kia Sedona

LX

The LX offers seating for eight, plus power-folding side mirrors, power-sliding side doors, a power driver seat with lumbar adjustment, and a six-speaker audio system.

Kia Sedona

EX

Choose the EX model and you get an upgraded suspension, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED positioning headlights, fog lights, and heated side mirrors. You’ll also find second- and third-row sunshades, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a leather-covered shift knob. This model also comes with three-zone climate control, push-button start, UVO telematics service, and a seven-inch touchscreen.

Kia Sedona

SX

Like the L, the SX trim offers standard seven-passenger seating, with optional space for eight. This model is equipped with selectable driving modes, 18-inch machine finished alloy wheels, LED rear combination lamps, a power passenger seat, heated second-row seats, and driver memory. This model also has an eight-speaker Infinity audio system and navigation. Advanced safety features include front and rear parking sensor, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

Kia Sedona

SXL

The top-grade SXL trim is outfitted with 19-inch chrome-finished alloy wheels. It also comes with adaptive headlamps, an acoustic windshield, and a unique grille. Entry steps are included; a panoramic sunroof is available. You’ll also find a 110-volt outlet, console tray upgrades, and Nappa leather seating. A leather and wood heated steering wheel is included. The SXL builds on the SX’s advanced safety features, bringing in autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and a surround-view monitor.

CarsDirect Tip

If navigation is important to you, then you’ll have to start at the SX level to get that feature. But with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, you can get directions from your smartphone. Our pick is the EX, which offers most of the features minivan shoppers want for under $35,000.

With the rise of the crossover, the minivan segment is as thin as it’s been since the 1980s. Kia, however, keeps on trucking – or should we say “vanning” – with its recently redesigned Sedona. With the 2017 Sedona’s near-perfect interior comfort and soft ride, it may seem like the ideal family car, but it’s far from perfect.

Pricing and Equipment

The 2017 Kia Sedona starts from $26,900 in its L trim level. While that’s a strong price, the EX trim will be the most popular trim among buyers because of its features and competitive $33,600 starting price. This trim comes with:

  • Eighteen-inch wheels
  • Fog lights
  • Heated mirrors
  • Power liftgate
  • Keyless entry and ignition
  • Tri-zone climate control
  • Leather seating with heated front seats
  • Seven-inch touchscreen display

Buyers looking for even more features can add the EX Advanced Premium Technology Package for $2,800 and gains features like power front seats, integrated seat memory, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

All Sedonas rely on a 3.3-liter V6, producing 276 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque, and a six-speed automatic transmission. The most efficient Sedona – the stylish SX trim – returns 18 miles per gallon in the city and 25 on the highway.

Performance Pros

Kia Sedona
  • The ride is soft and absorbs bumps effortlessly, even with the optional 19-inch wheels.
  • The 3.3-liter V6 has plenty of power to move this heavy minivan.
  • Max towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.
  • Stable steering tracks true and straight on the interstate with very little wandering.

Performance Cons

  • With a full load of passengers and a trailer, the Sedona may struggle.
  • The suspension can get into a rhythmic bounce on some imperfect interstates.
  • Not at all good in the corners due to its high center of gravity and heavy curb weight (but what minivan is?).
  • Six-speed transmission feels dated when Chrysler is using a nine-speed auto for the Pacifica and Honda will sell both nine- and ten-speed autos on the Odyssey.

Interior Pros

  • Higher trim levels boast plenty of soft-touch materials and K900-like styling details.
  • The first- and second-row seats are impressively comfortable.
  • Lots of small storage areas for tucking away items.
  • The cabin is a very quiet space, even at higher speeds.

Interior Cons

Kia Sedona
  • The third row is on the smaller side, and not great for teenagers.
  • Getting to the third row is tight.
  • Lacks the maximum cargo room of its competitors.

The Most Pleasant Surprise

Driving the Sedona is surprisingly comfortable. Its ride is about as good as a non-luxury vehicle can get, and its interior is extremely quiet. Pair this peacefulness with the premium features in the higher trim levels, and buyers may think they’re in a higher-end vehicle.

The Least Pleasant Surprise

We understand that minivans aren’t marketed as performance vehicles, but the Sedona really struggles with moving quickly. It also pitches and rolls too much, making everyone inside feel quite uneasy.

The Bottom Line

Kia has come a long way with its models’ premium features and cabin quality, and the Sedona is no exception. Plus, this minivan is a decent buy for the money. It does, however, have some glaring issues: handling woes, a tight third row, and its below-average max cargo capacity. That said, the comfy ride and whisper-quiet interior could push many families to look past these issues. Whether the Sedona is amazing or mediocre depends on what each buyer expects from their minivan.
