Wealth of standard features; excellent safety reputation; choice of two different sizes; good handling
The Kia Sedona got a new engine and transmission for 2011, a 271 horsepower 3.5L V6 mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission as well as some freshened styling.
With more standard equipment than rival vans, the Kia Sedona makes a strong appeal to value for the money. The Sedona comes in several thousand dollars cheaper than a similarly equipped Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna and includes a more powerful engine. The Sedona is, like many in the minivan segment, safety-conscious; it comes with a full roster of safety equipment and top crash-test scores as well as being named a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS.
The 2011 Kia Sedona is powered by a 271-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6 engine, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic manual control.
The Sedona's interior configuration really makes the most of the available space, with three rows of seating and space for up to seven. Second-row captain's chairs are removable and the 60/40-split third-row seat folds fully into the floor to make available a flat cargo area. A 50/50-split removable third-row seat completes the seating for seven. The Sedona comes with sliding doors on both sides.
The Sedona offers good acceleration, even with a full load, thanks to the torquey character of the V6 engine. Properly equipped, the Sedona can tow up to 3,500 lb. A 4-wheel independent suspension employs MacPherson struts in front and a multi-link design in back, with stabilizer bars front and back. The Sedona handles surprisingly well. As with most minivans, it steers and maneuvers much more like a sedan than a van.
Driver and passenger front air bags are standard, as in most cars, but so are side-impact airbags and front and rear-occupant curtain airbags. Anti-lock brakes, stability control, traction control and tire pressure monitors are also standard equipment.
LX models come with 3-zone air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry and power windows--including one in the sliding door. The EX loads on many additional features, including a roof rack, fog lamps, power-adjustable seats, adjustable pedals and a trip computer. Both models include an MP3-compatible CD sound system that also includes a USB port and Bluetooth.
Leather seat trim, heated seats and adjustable pedals are optional on the EX. The Premium Entertainment Package, a $1,500 option, adds 7.1 surround sound, Infinity speakers and a DVD video system. A navigation system is available as well.
