2019 Kia Sedona OVERVIEW

Design and specification tweaks have refreshed the 2019 Kia Sedona minivan. There are four trim levels but only one engine and transmission choice, with a $14,000 price difference between entry-level and flagship models.

What's New for 2019

The Sedona gains Kia’s latest family nose, with a new grille and redesigned LED headlights among a raft of external revisions for 2019. There are new wheels and a replacement transmission, while cabin graphics and infotainment systems have been upgraded.

Choosing Your Kia Sedona

The choice of which Sedona model to go for is a relatively simple one, since every model features the same 3.3-liter V6 engine and a new eight-speed automatic transmission. This combination delivers 276 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels, while returning an EPA-estimated 18 miles per gallon city, 24 mpg highway, and 21 combined.

Kia has majored on safety with the Sedona, and every model receives a raft of features including rollover mitigation, brakeforce distribution, and hill start assistance control. The 2019 model year introduces a Driver Attention Warning system, which uses a combination of visual and audible warnings to highlight fatigue and applies the brakes in an emergency.

The Sedona is available in four trims:


The base Sedona L retails for $27,980 (all prices include the $990 destination charge). For this, buyers get automatic lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, a black mesh grille, and body-color mirrors. There’s a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system equipped with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Siri Eyes Free. Other convenience features include keyless entry, air conditioning, Slide-n-Stow second-row seats and a 60/40-split rear bench seat. Black or white paint will cost you $395, and there are no packages available.


Subtle differences set apart the Sedona LX, which starts at $30,880. These include rear privacy glass, power sliding side doors, a six-speaker audio system with dash-mounted speakers, an eight-way power adjustable driver seat, and a standard three-passenger second-row bench seat. Once again, there are no packages available, but the LX does have a few more exterior color options.


Moving up to the EX trim will cost $34,180, though upgrades over the LX are significant. Roof rails and a rear spoiler enhance the minivan’s external appearance, while the seven-inch touchscreen gains online services. The cabin gains heated leather front seats, integrated second and third row sundshades, wireless phone charging, and rapid USB charging. A raft of safety aids come as standard, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and front and rear parking sensors.

The EX Premium Package ($4,800) bundles over 25 options together. Key highlights include a power sunroof and liftgate, lane departure warning and driver attention warning, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, tri-zone climate control, heated and power-folding outside mirrors, and eight-way adjustment for both front seats (with four-way power lumbar adjustment for the driver).


The most expensive Sedona model is the $41,980 SX. Bigger 18-inch wheels and LED fog lights give the exterior greater presence, while a power sunroof brightens a cabin also equipped with heated and ventilated front seats with eight-way power adjustment and a power liftgate. The touchscreen display grows to eight inches and gains navigation and HD radio, with Harman Kardon providing a premium audio system with an external amplifier and subwoofer. The screen also displays a surround-view monitor. The are no packages available on the SX.

CarsDirect Tip

The safety features of 2019 Kia Sedona EX models will be welcomed by families, though the Premium Package represents questionable value when most of its features are included as standard in the SX – which also gains a number of additional safety and infotainment upgrades.
