Exterior & Interior
The minivan market is intense, with only a handful of competitors for the Kia Sedona to outshine. Luckily, with a stylish exterior and feature-packed interior, the Kia van has no issue rising above the rest and offering versatility and comfort. On the outside, the 2020 Sedona sports the signature Kia tiger nose grille, seamless body-color handles and mirrors, heated rear glass, and projector beam headlights to illuminate the path ahead. Once inside, you’ll notice how roomy the Kia Sedona really is — 142 cubic feet of space, to be exact. On top of all that space, you’ll have a ton of nooks and crannies to store your stuff. Everyone can stay hydrated with the 12 cup holders available, but seating will be kept neat and tidy thanks to YES Essentials fabric treatment.
Your life is hectic when you have to transport the kids to soccer practice and get to PTA meetings on time. That’s why the 2020 Sedona is packed with the latest tech to keep you connected on the go. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you can connect your smartphone to the minivan’s display and have your favorite apps available at the touch of a finger. The interior of the Sedona also includes 12-volt power outlets, Bluetooth connectivity, Siri Eyes Free, and a USB/auxiliary input jack. A wireless phone charger can be had on the EX trim while a larger 8-inch touch-screen display with HD Radio and SiriusXM radio is found on the top-of-the-line SX trim.
