2017 Kia Sedona
Let's be honest-most people don't want to go down the minivan route because, to most people, it means a loss of individuality and style in exchange for wild practicality and utility. The 2017 Kia Sedona laughs in the face of this idea, providing exterior style that smacks of confidence, some incredibly sweet interior features, and a safety package that makes a minivan make real sense.
2017 Kia Sedona
The 2017 Kia Sedona is the vehicle equivalent of an "oh yeah?" to all the minivan naysayers out there. Not stylish? Kia begs to differ, rolling out exterior and interior styling that delivers. The exterior of the Sedona is muscular and confident, with a fierce grill reminiscent of a tough full-size SUV or a serious sportscar. It's got personality, which is maximized by the wraparound rear glass and spoiler. Add in the available 19-inch chrome wheels and, honestly, we're not sure how anyone could possibly argue that the 2017 Kia Sedona is anything other than stylish. Yes, it still looks like a minivan, but the Sedona makes minivans look good.
The interior isn't pulling any punches either, with tiered options that bring either a family-friendly practicality or a level of luxury you're probably not used to encountering in a minivan. The Sedona brings the utility with their Slide-N-Stow seating, which allows the third row to retract completely into the van's floor and the second row to push all the way forward to make room for more cargo. Those same second row seats can come equipped with first class seating, including retractable footrests that create a mind-bogglingly luxury experience for passengers. We like the anti-pinch doors, as well, that stop automatically when sensors detect an object in its way. With four different ways to operate those doors, the 2017 Kia Sedona keeps its feet firmly in the practical minivan territory while offering buyers the option to customize and up the ante in luxury.
If you're buying a minivan, you're buying everyday usefulness, so the thoughtful features of the Sedona matter. An SUV-inspired center console creates a cockpit feel that many minivans don't have while maintaining plenty of usable storage space. We're wowed by twelve cupholders, simply because it avoids conflict automatically, and appreciate the Smart Power liftgate. Walk near the liftgate with your smart key and your liftgate opens, without the need to push a button or tap your foot anywhere. That's just smart thinking. Of course, the Sedona comes with multiple infotainment options and the rear camera that is basically standard equipment but still makes life easier.
Hauling precious cargo in your 2017 Kia Sedona comes with more peace of mind. A full complement of air bags, as well as side impact door beams and front and rear crumple zones mean that your Sedona is literally built to protect you. The crash tests are impressive too, with a five-star rating going to the 2017 Sedona (https://www.nhtsa.gov/vehicle/2017/KIA/SEDONA/VAN/FWD). We love the available safety options as well, with everything from smart cruise control to lane drift alerts.
The 2017 Kia Sedona is not your mama's minivan. Showing buyers that you don't have to sacrifice swagger for usefulness, the Sedona combines aggressive styling with available features that impress even the biggest skeptics.
