2017 Kia Sedona review: Our expert's take

What it is: Kia redesigned the Sedona minivan for 2015 and gave it bolder styling, new seats that offer greater passenger- and cargo-hauling flexibility, a new V-6 engine and a high-end SXL trim level with available Nappa leather upholstery.

All models have front-wheel drive, a 3.3-liter V-6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. Seats for seven or eight are available, depending on whether the second row has two or three seats. The Sedona competes with the Chrysler Pacifica, Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto become standard on EX, SX and SXL trim levels, and are optional on the LX. Automatic emergency braking is now part of the optional Technology Package.

Outstanding vehicle!

From the styling and comfort to the performance and handling this is by far the best minivan we have owned. Reliability is virtually 100% after almost 50K miles.


My first dealership car!

It has plenty of leg room and head room. It has a backup camera, the ride is so smooth and the engine is so quiet when I stop I almost forget that it's turned on!!! I'm still learning what I can do with it, for ex: sync my phone and my music to the car never had a car that I could do that in before!!!


The best van for the money, hands-down!

We recently upgraded to a 2017 Kia Sedona from a 2007 Hyundai Entourage (which is essentially the older model of the same van) and have been very impressed with the upgrades. There seems to be more space and I like the middle console. We never had any issues with our previous van and haven't had any with this one either. It's a very reliable model and one of the least expensive vans on the market.
