    2018 Kia Sedona OVERVIEW

    "Minivan" is a poor moniker for today's short-nosed family haulers. Take the 2018 Kia Sedona. At 201 inches long, it out-measures a Cadillac XTS sedan. Put it on the scales, and the reading will be shockingly close to two and half tons. Yes, the days of the truly "mini" van ended during the Bush administration, but that isn't a bad thing. All that acreage means the Sedona offers ample room for anything you can stuff in it, from people to plywood. Space is king in minivans – even if they have to become maxivans to get it.

    What's New for 2018

    Kia's Sedona rolls into 2018 unchanged.

    Choosing Your Kia Sedona

    All 2018 Kia Sedona models have the same hardware under the hood: a 3.3-liter V6 and a six-speed automatic transmission. Output is a modest 276 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque, which is enough to move this 4,736-pound van from zero to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds. Gas mileage is 18 miles per gallon city, 24 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined for the bottom three trims, while the SX is rated at 18/25/21 mpg and the top-of-the-line SX Limited gets 17/22/19 mpg. Standard safety features include an array of airbags, rollover mitigation, cornering brake control, and emergency braking.

    Buyers can outfit their Sedona in one of five trims:


    The base Sedona L retails for $27,990 (prices include the $990 destination charge). Standard features include 17-inch wheels, body-colored mirrors and door handles, auto light control, intermittent wipers, a rear spoiler, Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, a USB port, 12 cup holders, a 5.0-inch touchscreen display, and a four-speaker AM/FM/MP3/SiriusXM audio system. Manual fabric seats with second-row Stow n' Go seating and a 60/40 split third row are also standard. Carpeted floor mats are optional.


    A step up from the L is the $29,990 Sedona LX. On top of the L's standard features, the LX offers power-folding outside mirrors, dual power sliding doors, an eight-way power driver's seat, and a third-row bench. The LX Essentials Premium Package ($2,400) equips the minivan with front and rear parking assist, a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, leather trim for the seats, shift knob, and steering wheel, heated front seats, roof rails, illuminated door handle pockets, second and third row window sunshades, and a cooling glove box. The LX Advanced Technology Package ($1,900) adds automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, heated outside mirrors, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, and lane departure warning.


    Sitting in the middle of the lineup is the $34,690 EX. Standard features include heated outside mirrors, solar control glass, a power and height-adjustable liftgate, fog lights, roof rails, and 18-inch wheels. Inside, EX buyers get a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, voice recognition, front and rear parking assist, a smart key, a cooling glove box, second and third row window sunshades, and leather seating surfaces. For $2,800, the EX Advanced Premium Technology Package brings the suite of advanced safety features from the LX Advanced Technology Package plus heated second row seats, a four-way power lumbar support driver's seat, an eight-way power front passenger seat, an integrated memory system, and a front-passenger chauffeur seat switch (which lets the driver move the front passenger seat up via a button).


    The Sedona SX sits second from the top in the Sedona hierarchy and starts at $37,990. The SX boasts of LEDs, 18-inch wheels, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with navigation, an eight-speaker sound system, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, and multiple drive modes. Inside, buyers get an eight-way, power-adjustable and four-way power lumbar passenger seat, memory seating, ventilated seats, the chauffeur switch, heated second row seats, a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel, and metal door trim. The SX 8-Passenger Advanced Touring Package ($3,900) adds a suite of advanced safety technologies, HID headlights with auto-leveling, high beam assist, dynamic bending light (which turns the headlights into a turn), a 110-volt power inverter, a sound-absorbing windshield, a heated steering wheel, and three-passenger second row seating with a fold down center console.

    SX Limited

    The most expensive Sedona is the SX Limited, which starts at $42,990. It adds a ton of standard features, including a 110-volt power inverter, a wood-style, leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, wood-style door trim, automatic emergency braking, adapative cruise control, and a surround view camera system. The SX Limited Prestige Package ($1,000) includes first-class lounge seating, dual sunroofs, Nappa leather seat trim, and premium headliner fabric. The lounge seating means the second-row bucket seats can recline and allow for 11 inches of fore-aft movement and three inches of lateral travel.

    CarsDirect Tip

    Kids are the most precious cargo, and a minivan is often the chariot of choice to haul the little ones. Because of this, the optional driver assist features shouldn't be overlooked, which is why we'd start our search with at least the LX trim.
