The exterior features the brand’s tabbed grille; predatory headlamps and the flat hood that makes it look more like a cross-over. Other interesting exterior design features include one lower window that kicks up each sliding door and an Optima-like -chrome strip that actually runs from the car's side mirror all along the roofline .

The wheels range from between 17 and 19 inches spokes. At the rear, you find horizontal LED tail lamps, an amusing 'diffuser-esque' rear bumper and a roof spoiler.

Interior

Depending on the configuration, the interior can seat 7 or 8 people. Other features include soft-touch material, contrasting stitching and some solid or 2-toned color schemes.

The new seating include 2nd –row seats that actually slide and also flatten against the front seatbacks for an easy access to the third row.

The car also comes with the next-generation UVO -infotainment and telematics system. This will be the very first Kia to have e-services such as speed alert, GPS-based geo-fencing, curfew alert and one driving-score function. This will also be able to function with some mobile apps like the iHeart Radio, Pandora and Yelp.

Safety

Safety has become an important aspect to minivan owners. For this reason, Kia has paid attention to this area in the Sedona, they include standard hill-start assist, brake assist, rollover mitigation & cornering brake control.

Other optional features include radar cruise control, collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot detection.
