2015 Kia Sedona: Fuel Economy Update for November — Mileage Slips Again
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on December 7, 2015
The overall average in our 2015 Kia Sedona continues to slide. After some longer road trips in prior months, the Sedona mostly stuck around town in November, which contributed to the slide.
That said, it's still delivering about what we expect given its EPA rating of 19 mpg in combined driving. Even after this month's slide, it's only down to 18.1 mpg. That's pretty close as our long-termers go.
In the last four weeks, the Sedona was tasked with swallowing a mountain bike, hauling a family out for some apple picking and all manner of day-to-day errand running. We also picked apart its power options and video monitor during some down time.
All-in-all, it continues to impress almost every member of our staff with its comfort, convenience and versatility. We'll see if the mileage continues its downward trajectory or starts to level out.
