The 2015 Kia Sedona has been in our long-term fleet since August, and it wasn't until last weekend that I learned it had a rear-seat DVD player. And I would have never known about it if I hadn't climbed into the back to check out the killer second row captain's chairs for myself.
Lo and behold, there were two pairs of wireless headphones in the front seatback pockets. I scanned the ceiling and found nothing between the dual sunroofs. I broke out the packet of owner's manuals. After I spent 20 minutes leafing through the tomes and came away empty-handed, I finally found the answer thanks to the wonders of the Internet.

During the past ten months, we've heaped tons of praise on the 2015 Hyundai Sonata for its clean and simple center stack design. I'm a big fan as well. Our 2015 Kia Sedona has a similar split stack for climate and center display controls and while there are some differences, partially because of the third-row temperature dial, the design is still straightforward and easy to learn.
Still, I prefer the setup in the Sonata.

The whole point of real-time traffic updates is the ability to make real-time decisions. That's why systems like the one in our 2015 Kia Sedona so often frustrate me.
As you can see, the traffic map shows nothing but green on my route. Yet there I sit in traffic at a standstill.

Over the last few years, Kia has bucked the "...for its price" qualifier that accompanied so many of the South Korean automaker's past products. Kia's current lineup is no-foolin', no-qualifiers good. And now the all-new-for-2015 Kia Sedona joins that club.
When designing the Sedona, Kia drew influence from its crossover lineup. The exterior styling is muscular, and the dash and front seats are arranged with the shifter mounted on the wide center console with a configurable bin big enough to hold a newborn.
