2015 Kia Sedona: Swallows Cargo Easily
by Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on September 7, 2015
Hauling awkward cargo is one of those things that minivans handle as well or better than some pickups. In this case, our 2015 Kia Sedona swallowed a seven-foot long area rug without a hitch.
Captain's chairs in the second row made this possible, although even if there was a second-row bench I could have just slung the rug over the top. If I was driving our Chevrolet Colorado or even one of our full-sizes trucks like the F-150 or Ram, that roll would have been hanging over the side given that none of them have a bed longer than six feet.
Also note how flat the load floor is with the third row folded. There are some gaps here and there, but overall it's a big space that can swallow huge chunks of cargo. A low liftover height makes it easy to toss in stuff as well. We'll see how this van fares once we fill it with passengers and luggage, but so far it has proven practical for weekend errand duty.
