KIA Sedona is a fabulous vehicle
Reviews complain about gas mileage, but I don't know why. My wife and I took an 8000 mile road trip and got 24.5 mpg -- loaded with people and luggage. The last two days we took a 400 mile road trip and we got 26.7 mpg. We were in the mountains on the 8000 mile trip and I used the manual shifting a lot. No manual shifting on the Pacifica, which we compared with the Sedona before we bought it. Sedona handles extremely well with a very good turning radius. Pacifica about 3 feet larger radius. We test drove both and the smaller Sedona radius was obvious. Dash layout on the Sedona is well thought out, and attractive. The nav system is the best I've ever used, by far. Vehicle is extremely quiet, and tracks perfectly on the interstate. It's quick -- I saw car magazine reports that rated it at 7.4 seconds 0-60. That's fast for a large vehicle. I keep saying vehicle because it looks and acts more like an SUV than a minivan. Nappa leather is great, airplane type second row seats are a true luxury. Dual sun roof really lets the light inside. I've driven the Pacifica, Odyssey and Sienna -- I think the Sedona is the best vehicle. Update to my review one year later: I still think the Sedona SXL is a great vehicle. We have over 16,000 miles on it, and have had no problems. We are currently on a 12,000 mile road trip around the USA, with about 3,000 miles completed. Average MPG so far on the trip is 24.7. Handling on the interstate continues to be perfect, ride is excellent. No complaints whatsoever. It is now January 2018 and we have 28,500 miles on the Sedona. Our 12,000 mile trip ended up to be 12,600 miles, and we averaged 24.5 mpg. I can't figure out why the Sedona is rated low on gas mileage, I think it's fabulous. So far we have had zero problems. I've never had a car before, with over 28,000 miles on it, that didn't have something go wrong. It still rides great, and handles well. I thought our 12,600 miles trip would be very tiring. It turned out to be just the opposite. The Sedona is comfortable, and easy to drive. Lots of power, no problems in CA keeping up, or passing, on the freeways. The last car I had, a 2015 SUV, had what I call 'high effort' steering. It made for very tiresome driving. On our Sedona we can choose between two different steering efforts. I'm 78 years old and it's a joy to drive the car. Update July 2018. We are on another road trip, so far 4400 miles. Again, the Sedona has performed perfectly. MPG on this trip is 24.9 to-date. There is really nothing more to say, except that my wife and I love the car.
give Kias a chance.
When our '14 Sienna's lease was about to expire (great car btw), I searched frantically for something new and improved. We had a '09 Odyssey followed by a '12 Odyssey. These cars were good -especially the 2009- but felt the 2012 was harder to use, and [much] worse to drive. We looked at the Pacifica (didn't like the driving) I didn't love Sienna's interior quality, so I didn't want another one. Honda's redesign was mindblowingly ugly (for me at least), so it was either Sedona or Quest. My parents and I ruled out the Quest after I did research on it and didn't like things about it. When I told my mom our best choice was a Sedona, she asked what brand it was. I said a Kia. She didn't stop laughing for 5 minutes. But after talking about it and seeing it at the LA car show, she opened up to it like crazy. We had eyed one Cerritos, and we recently purchased it for about 375\mo. We mostly do the back and forth of driving to the store, school, work etc. so mileage is pretty bad. Really comfy though and everything works good. One downside is how far the 'Tune' button is from the driver. it is far enough that you can't reach it while driving. Another is Lane Departure Warning & BSM. We want to keep it on because it can be extremely helpful, but it makes annoying beeps if, God forbid, we are within 2 inches of the yellow line. It also sometimes thinks it 'sees' things that it doesn't, which results in the LDW going off sometimes while pulling into our driveway. All in all though, awesome car
Nicely surprized!
Have to have substantial strength to move second and especially stowing third row seats. A little short on interior lighting on controls, door unlocks and that sort of thing. Way back lighting not too good inside cargo area. Don't like the way the headlights automatically dim at very slow speeds (live in deer country!) The voice response (navigation, blue tooth etc.) seems slow. Salespeople at Crown Kia in Tyler were not at the top of their game. Make ready was poor as to clean up but that was probably partly caused by my husband rushing them. Salespeople replaced some things missing in car, like the removable light in cargo area and that was good, but why did I have to ask? I have driven (3) Lexus RX350's in a row before this Kia and so far am more satisfied with the Kia. I am long legged and the 2nd row seats (on tracks) are wonderful!

BRYN MACKINNON: I'm Bryn MacKinnon, and this is an Edmunds expert rundown of the 2017 Kia Sedona. As minivans go, the 2017 Kia Sedona is kind of a breath of fresh air. The crossover inspired styling is one thing that sets it apart, and there's also a burly v-6 under the hood that gives you quick acceleration when you need it. As expected from Kia, you get a lot of features for your money. And then there's Kia's excellent warranty coverage for extra peace of mind. What's the catch? Well it's not really a catch, but subpar fuel economy is the price you have to pay for that quick acceleration. There's also a bit less cargo space than you get in rival vans. Inside the Sedona you'll find plenty of rear passenger space. Although the second row seats don't do neat things like Chrysler's Stow 'n Go seats for example. So you lose a little versatility there. Up front, look at how the center console rises up between the seats and connects with the dashboard. That's another SUV like element that distinguishes the Sedona from its unabashedly vanney rivals. We like Kia's touchscreen, by the way. It's simple to use and responds quickly to your taps. The bottom line is that Sedona's got a vibe all its own. And that's pretty impressive for a minivan. Of course, you got to check out the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna if you're in the market for a minivan. And the new Chrysler Pacifica is another strong rival. But the Sedona is right in the mix and well-worth a test drive. For more Edmunds expert rundowns, click the link to subscribe.
