2015 Kia Sedona: Long-Distance Trips Boost Fuel Economy in June
by Cameron Rogers, Associate Editor on July 11, 2016
Two long-distance trips in June boosted the 2015 Kia Sedona's fuel economy from 18.1 mpg to 18.3 mpg overall. The first run was from the office to Brent Romans' "Rancho Relaxo" estate in Fresno, some 200 miles north of our offices. After it returned, I loaded up my family and took it to Las Vegas.
Even with six passengers and luggage, the Sedona returned an impressive 21 mpg over the course of the trip, just 1 mpg off the EPA highway estimate.
Fuel economy for all of June was 21.0 mpg, the Sedona's most fuel-efficient month so far.
