2015 Kia Sedona: Storage Goes Deep
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on November 19, 2015
That deep well you see in the back of our 2015 Kia Sedona is nothing special. Other minivans have offered it for years, yet it never ceases to amaze me how useful it is on a daily basis.
It swallows half a dozen bags of groceries with ease and keeps anything that might spill out tightly contained. Can't say the same about most trunks no matter how many hooks they have.
It's also incredibly adept at carrying tall, awkward items that you would rather stand up than lay down. I recently picked up a replacement window for my kitchen that fit right in no problem. Sure, I could have laid it down in the back of an SUV, but that's not the preferred way to move windows. With this setup, it was a piece of cake.
If there's a drawback here, it's that when the third-row seats are folded down into the well they can be awkward to yank back into place. I'll leave that for another post entirely, however, as more than one editor has mentioned this issue.
