Autotrader Names Kia Sedona Must Test Drive Vehicle for 2016
Minivans have always had a stigma of not being “cool.” Well, the 2016 Kia Sedona is changing that. During the hubbub of the New York International Auto Show last month, the Sedona minivan was named one of Autotrader’s Must Test Drive Vehicles for 2016. This list is used to highlight the vehicles on the market that new car buyers should test drive before making their final purchase decision.

“We are excited that the Sedona was recognized by Autotrader as a Must Test Drive offering,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning for Kia Motors America. “With its abundant roster of standard safety, technology, and convenience features, the Sedona is an ideal choice for families as well as buyers with active lifestyles. This award is a testament to Kia’s continued commitment to world-class quality and top-notch design.”
The winners of this prestigious accolade are determined based on a variety of categories. This includes exterior styling, interior quality, cargo capacity, standard and available technology, and ride quality.
Despite being a practical family vehicle, the Kia Sedona managed to leave a lasting impression on Autotrader’s editors with its stylish exterior and interior; powerful 3.3-liter V6 engine; and unbeatable features.
According to Brian Moody, executive editor of Autotrader, “All of our editors love the reclining second-row seats found in the SXL, and other high points that led us to our ‘unexpectedly good’ conclusion include a huge sunroof over the middle and third-row seats plus tons of storage bins that make traveling with a family just a little bit easier.”
