2021 Kia Sedona Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

The 2021 Kia Sedona minivan sits across the lot from much more fascinating relatives crossovers and vehicles. (That it shares the identical showroom as the Telluride crossover is just not honest, man.)

Nonetheless, some households can not escape the have to have for snug transportation for two or much more little children. And for ease, it’s hard to best a van. 

It earns a 5.7 TCC Score, which is many thanks generally to its roomy inside. (Study much more about how we level vehicles.)

Overview continues under

Kia still left the Sedona on your own for 2021, which suggests like final 12 months, it’s accessible in L, LX, EX, and SX trim amounts for at minimum $29,000 all the way to much more than $42,000. 

The Sedona’s boxy entire body addresses a cavernous inside that seats up to 8 with a great deal of cubbies for storage and units. 

Rivals such as the Honda Odyssey and Chrysler Pacifica glance greater, but the Sedona will get the basic principles appropriate. Every van is equipped with at minimum a 7.-inch touchscreen with smartphone computer software, Bluetooth connectivity, and good room. 

We favor best trims like the EX and SX not only for their leather upholstery, but also for the reason that those are the only Sedonas that get energetic safety features such as automatic emergency braking (optional on EX, and regular on SX).

Every van is powered by a three.three-liter V-6 that will make 276 horsepower and drives the front wheels only by using an 8-speed automatic transmission. Electricity is not the Kia van’s contacting card, but it rides properly and steers very easily and returns about 21 mpg combined, in accordance to the EPA. 

Federal testers gave it generally best marks for crash safety, and the IIHS experienced generally good points to say. 

Though the van commences for much less than some competitors, the Sedona EX is the trim we’d choose for—but only after adding practically $5,000 in choices to incorporate lifesaving safety tech. That puts our encouraged van at about $40,000, which includes destination, and appropriate in the gun sights of greater vans from Honda and Chrysler. Not to mention that Telluride, as well.
