Everything’s coming up Sedona! The day after Kia’s new minivan earned a 5-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA, it racked up another honor by landing on the 2015 Ward’s 10 Best Interiors list.

The editors at WardsAuto recognized the 2015 Kia Sedona for its stylish and comfortable interior, which includes available Nappa leather and second-row “First-Class” lounge seating.

“The all-new Sedona completes Kia’s design-led transformation under the direction of chief design officer Peter Schreyer.  It combines CUV styling, inside and out, with exceptional quality and offers unique interior features,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning for Kia Motors America.  “This is the second-consecutive year that Kia has earned a spot on the Ward’s 10 Best Interiors list, following last year’s inclusion of the ultra-popular Soul.  This award is a testament to Kia’s continued commitment to world-class quality and top-notch design that is as beautiful as it is functional.”

The 2015 Kia Sedona is available in both seven- and eight-passenger seating configurations, while the minivan’s exclusive Slide-N-Stow second-row seats can fold upright when not in use to allow for easily enhanced cargo hauling. The vehicle’s unique front center console allows for greater storage space between the front seats, as well.

“Minivans may not be as popular as they used to be, but the all-new Kia Sedona gives us reason to think this segment is in store for a resurgence,” said WardsAuto World magazine executive editor Tom Murphy.  “Kia takes stylistic chances with the Sedona interior.  Sedona is unique in its interior design with two-tone leather set off with white piping and orange contrast stitching. The van’s comfortable and spacious, with way-cool second-row lounge seats with footrests.  It’s also flexible, with third-row seats that fold into the floor. Finally, a minivan that is truly cool!”
