The Kia Sedona may not be the first name you think of when shopping for a new or used minivan. However, with the second-generation Sedona benefiting from a diet and more power under the hood, Kia's minivan is no longer huffing and puffing to catch up to the more expensive class leaders. Plus, it delivers in the key areas of build quality, passenger comfort, crash test scores and storage space. Discover the ins and outs on used Kia Sedonas, available now in Carvana's inventory.
Memorable First RowThe Kia Sedona is standout amongst many of its competitors due to the upscale dashboard area that is immediately evident when you climb inside. Underscored by refined gauges and dashboard buttons, the Sedona has effectively captured the feeling of a crossover in a minivan.
Versatile Second-Row DesignComplete with three available rows, it's not so much the number of rows that sets the Sedona apart, but the their adjustability. This is particularly true of the Sedona's second row, which can be slid and stowed forward with the outboard seats or removed from the vehicle when not in use. The backrest of these seats also folds forward to serve as an armrest with two cupholders.
Quiet Cabin AreaAmongst rivals in its class, the Sedona has earned a reputation for being an exceedingly serene vehicle for passengers. Even on the highway, the Sedona virtually eliminates all road, engine, and wind noise.
Fuel EconomyOn the L, LX, and EX trims, the fuel economy on the Sedona is about average, as the EPA estimates that the Sedona gets roughly 20 mpg combined (18 mpg city/24 mpg highway). However, on the SX-L model, that estimate drops to 19 mpg combined (17 mpg city/22 mpg highway) which is due to the additional weight this model carries.
Cargo SpaceCompared to its minivan rivals, the Kia Sedona skimps some on the available space for cargo that it provides. Behind the third-row seats, the Sedona provides 33.9 cubic feet of storage space, which is enough space for about eight bags of golf clubs. With the rear seats folded, that number increases to 78.4 cubic feet.
AccelerationIt's not likely that those in the market for a Sedona will be needing it for joyride purposes, but if you are looking for a minivan with a little punch, the Sedona is only average. In Edmunds performance testing, the Sedona went from 0 to 60 mph in a class average 7.9 seconds.
