2015 Kia Sedona: Simple Controls Can Be a Stretch

by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on November 4, 2015

2015 Kia Sedona

Given all the features our 2015 Kia Sedona offers, it's good to see that the center stack remains a relatively clean and uncluttered array of buttons and knobs. Sure, you can dig into some of the more complex features on the touchscreen above, but for basic stuff like adjusting the fan speed or tuning the radio, there are clearly labeled buttons or knobs for everything.

I also like the fact that there's a clear separation of the audio and climate controls. Sure, it saves space if you put them all together on one panel, but this layout makes it so you barely have to even look to find the knob or button you need.

If there's one downside to the layout, it's that the tuning knob can be quite a stretch for shorter drivers. This tends to be an issue with any vehicle that stretches the radio controls across the dash like this. There are ways around it, but it's still an issue.
