The 2019 Kia Sedona is a versatile, comfortable and safe minivan, and is also perfect for modern families. The new Sedona is available in five trim levels and it offers to seat for seven or eight passengers. The price of the upcoming Kia’s minivan is fair and less expensive than some competitors like Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey. All five trims are coming with a 3.3-liter V6 drivetrain.
Sedona offers a smooth drive with front-wheel drive setup. The interior looks good and Kia offers a great warranty as well. Safety rating is high thanks to plenty of high-tech safety systems. Overall, Sedona is a family-favorite car and the upcoming model suffered some limited upgrades like new exterior colors.
2019 Kia Sedona Improved Design
Kia’s designing is well-known no matter if you opt for a sedan, SUV or minivan. Sedona is another perfect example of that statement, especially SX Limited model that wears 19-inch wheels. On top of that, Kia made the 2019 Sedona look more like some type of SUV than the actual minivan. Hood is less sloppy and side panels creases are now minimal. The front features a famous “tiger nose” grille and LED headlights, the taillights are also LED. A roof spoiler is slightly reshaped as well.
The new feature that we like is an around view monitor. This system is optional on all models except LX Limited and Around View Monitor will help significantly with parking and maneuvering in tight spaces. It uses cameras that are mounted all around the vehicle’s exterior and provides a 360-degree view. The update of the exterior is finished with some new colors were added. Silky Silver, Celestial Blue, and Beachwood Pearl are added, while some paints are excluded.
2019 Kia Sedona Interior and Cargo Space
Just like its rivals, the 2019 Kia Sedona offers three rows and seating for seven or eight passengers. Eight-passenger layout is available on higher trim levels thanks to a 2nd-row chair. The interior looks reshaped and sharp, and both legroom and headroom are better than on most of its rivals.
Furthermore, cargo capacity is also good. Comfort is excellent and it becomes even better if you opt for a First Class Lounge Seating option. The controls are intuitive and within a reach and the whole cabin layout is more than good.
