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.
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.
