Before you make a crack at minivans, consider a used 2015 Kia Sedona for your next family car. While the Sedona is still distinctly a minivan, it’s definitely the best looking one in its class. It has a compelling and stylish exterior with smooth contours and muscular angles.
But the real magic begins inside the cabin. Soft plastics and two-tone Nappa leather adorn the interior surfaces, elevating the Sedona to a new tier of quality. The captain’s chair style seats in the second row are exceptionally comfortable and have extendable footrests when reclined. So be warned, you may find your co-pilot prefers to sit in the back and be chauffeured.
As far as technology goes, the Kia UVO infotainment system is easy to operate and comes with navigation, hands-free voice commands, and more. Optional safety features include blind-spot detection, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and lane-keeping assistance.
An Autoblog review said that the Sedona delivered a silky and quiet ride that’s on par with upper-crust automakers. The 2015 model is powered by a 3.3-liter V6 engine that wields 276 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque, which is more than enough to get you and your loved ones across town or across the country even. This multi-purpose vehicle has an EPA rating of 17 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway.
