The Kia Sedona has been around since 1998, and is known as the Kia Carnival in some markets. Minivans have pretty much fallen off the map, with only a few big names out there. For the 2015 model year, Kia has taken the time to revamp its minivan and launch the third-generation model. Highlights of the new model include the new “Tiger-nose” grille, a sleeker exterior layout, new headlamps with LED technology, and a somewhat muscular appearance from the rear. Inside, the third-gen model is a huge departure from its predecessor, with room for up to eight passengers, and improved leg rom. The minivan also comes with Kia’s latest UVO technology to provide the best infotainment experience possible. Improving over the last model also meant that Kia had to do some work under the hood. Now, the Sedona features a 3.3-liter with 276 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque, which really isn’t bad for a soccer mom ride.

Of course, there isn’t a whole lot of competition out there as far as minivans goes, but that doesn’t mean that the competition that is here isn’t stronger than ever. Competing against models like the Honda Odyssey, Dodge Caravan, and the Chrysler Pacifica, the Sedona has its work cut out for it if Kia wants to surpass the mere 7,079 unites that is sold in 2013 – a far cry from that of the 120,000 examples of the Odyssey, for instance. Be that as it may, Kia put a lot of work into the all-new Sedona, so let’s take a closer look at it in our detailed review below.
