2017 Kia Sedona 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.

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.
