2015 Kia Sedona Visits Consumer Reports

The all-new Kia Sedona’s styling is a massive improvement over the previous model, and the interior looks better too. It is also more luxurious and better equipped, but as Consumer Reports’ Tom Mutchler found out during the first drive with the Sedona, Kia may have neglected practicality.

Unlike most of its rivals, the Sedona’s second row seats cannot be removed, affecting maximum cargo volume. Other issues? Left foot room for the driver is too small and the steering wheel doesn’t pull out far enough. Oh, and the touchscreen for the infotainment system is really small.

Other than that though, the Sedona impressed thanks to its 276hp 3.3-liter V6 engine. It doesn’t turn the minivan into a sports car, but that’s not what customers expect from a car in this segment.

Head down to learn what else Consumer Reports discovered about the 2015 Kia Sedona.
