2015 Kia Sedona: Sheet of Plywood Fits, Sort Of
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on February 10, 2016
There are minivans capable of swallowing a full 4x8-foot sheet of plywood. Our 2015 Kia Sedona is not one of them. At least not in the configuration we have. It will, however, swallow two-halves of a sheet of plywood.
That's what I did this past weekend in order to get some lumber home without resorting to using a truck. It helped that I didn't need a full-size sheet for my particular application. This is one of the drawbacks of getting the exceptionally comfortable, but slightly less practical, "first class" seats that come with the SX Limited. They're great for hauling people, but slightly less flexible for hauling cargo.
For added flexibility, you can order the SX Limited with the second row bench seats that fold in a more compact way. They still don't offer as much as some competitors, but they're slightly more accommodating. Something to think about if you use your minivan for more than just hauling kids.
