Van Griffith Kia of Granbury, TX proudly presents the all new 2017 Kia Sedona. Snazzy, sporty, and striking aren’t words you associate with minivans—but the ambitious folks at Kia have managed to bake a little of each into the Sedona. With room for eight, storage for family necessities, and a long list of standard and optional safety features, the Sedona is a compelling choice for value-minded shoppers. Powered by a 276-hp V-6 with a six-speed transmission and boasting a smooth ride, the Sedona also injects a little fun into daily kid-ferrying duties.
As the minivan segment has matured, all-new entries have become increasingly rare as the Honda, Toyota, and Chrysler troika continue to dominate. Case in point: Kia is offering the only completely new minivan for 2015, and it’s the Korean brand’s first new vehicle of the type since 2006.
The new minivan was a breakthrough in its class; modern, hi-tech and stylish – there was no need for compromise here – large families or people wanting to travel no longer had to choose between form and function – the Sedona has it all. Actually, 2017 Sedona comes in a wide variety of configurations. However, it seems to be no changes in comparison with 2016 model year car, the set of trims remain the same. The engine is common to all cars, which is 3.3L V6. All trims also equipped with a wide variety of safety systems, such as 8 airbags, stability control, traction control, brake force distribution, hill start assist, tire pressure monitor, safety door locks. VSM (vehicle stability management) system available only in two latest trims.
The new Kia Sedona isn’t something that you’d automatically recognise as a regular minivan; predatory LED headlamps, the ‘Tiger nose’ front grille and large 19” wheels give a different look to the vehicle, maybe part minivan and part crossover. Unlike most of the competition in this particular class, it doesn’t look boring, or ‘just another’ family vehicle – it actually has a bit of style about it. Despite being unchanged in size (202.9” long, 78.1” wide and 68.5” tall), the new Sedona seems bigger, especially on the inside. The lines of the instrument panel seem to enhance that effect, and thanks to the soft plastic trimming, the overall effect of luxury and quality is present. The seats take that a step further; trimmed in soft Nappa leather (the same as the premium sedan, the Quoris), the overall appearance of the interior is one of style, quality and luxury – definitely not your regular minivan. The great looks are coupled to a new motor; a 3.3 liter GDI V6. It’s more powerful than the current motor – 280 BHP and 247 lb/ft of torque and runs through a slick 6-speed auto transmission.
