2018 Kia Sedona – Only a year after the old one

The new 2018 Kia Sedona will try something which many manufacturers have tried before, to beat the competition on mini-van market. Those cars have always been made by the most popular manufacturer in the world, like Honda, Dodge, Toyota, and Chrysler, and it will not be easy to compete with them. On the other hand, Kia has already shown that they know what to offer to buyers, and the last Sedona has many interesting details which obviously were popular and acceptable among buyers. So, even though the selling of mini-van marked decreasing of 20% in the first quarter of 2017, Kia has decided to show redesigned model.

Exterior

Looking from the outside, 2018 Kia Sedona has the same design as average mini-van which we can see on market nowadays. The short front end has trapezoidal mesh grille, with rounded chromatic line and LED lights. The rest of the van is flat with sharp edges and simple details. Offering a couple of trim versions, the manufacturer also offered different dimensions and additions, so wheels size will start from 17-inch ones and ends with 19-inch ones. If you liked 2017 model, then you should know that this time Sedona has improved lines, design and slightly changed size than the last model.

Interior

As on many mini-vans, interior size is always connected with the space for passengers and number of seats, more than with equipment. However, 2018 Kia Sedona has eight seats arranged in three rows, where the second row has adjustable heated and cooled seats, while the third row has the option to lower the seat and increasing the cargo space. Unfortunately, cargo space is not much big as we expect in vans, but let say that manufacturer has made it mostly for family traveling. According to trim level, Kia has rich infotainment system with Apple Car Play, Google Android Auto, and many other things.

Engine

It is expected that 2018 Kia Sedona has the same engine as the old model, meaning 3.3-liter V6 with 276 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of feet. As the opposite of the last model, which had six-speed transmission, the new one will have eight-speed automatic transmission, which is proven as better for this size of the car. Depending on trim version and the height, fuel economy goes from 17 mpg to even 24 mpg on the highway.
