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.

Buying it fixed up has been more than fine!

We got a used Sedona and have loved it! We don’t regret it one bit after these few years we’ve had it so far. Even with the few dings from the previous accident, with the work done correctly this feels like a brand new van!


EX Version Review After 5 Years of Ownership

I bought the EX-version new from the dealership. The vehicle is great to this point. The driver's seat hits the back of my legs, and I am unable to adjust it to my liking. My legs get tired because of this. (I am 5'8) Recently, some of the parts have started falling off. Rubber stops on the lift gate and some plastic on the sliding door which I find concerning. I have 45,000 miles on the car. Around the city, I get about 17 to 19 MPG but full highway driving (California to Pennsylvania) I got nearly 28 MPG! Overall, the vehicle is pretty good, and I recommend it, however, I am concerned with what it will be when I reach 100,000. I am a little apprehensive about keeping it beyond 100,000 miles as opposed to my other vehicle, a Toyota.


100% reliability

Excellent vehicle. I have XLE version with 56k. I follow the maintenance standards and I have not had the slightest problem. I have traveled all over the east coast of the USA; from Chicago to Florida and from New York to Texas. Just for a technological update, I already want to change it for the new Carnival in its best version. I love Kia
