Kia wows US with Sedona minivanPOSTED BY Nigel Andretti ON 29 March 2016
KOREAN carmaker Kia has got its Sedona SUV on US publication, Autotrader’s Must Test Drive Vehicles for 2016 list.
The prestigious list is a uniquely consumer-focused showcase that highlights the top vehicles shoppers should test drive before deciding what to purchase.
The listed vehicles are chosen based on a diverse set of criteria outlined by Autotrader’s editorial experts, who log thousands of kilometres test driving the latest cars, trucks and SUVS on the road each year.
“We are excited that the Sedona was recognised by Autotrader as a Must Test Drive offering,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning Kia Motors America in a statement.
“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.”
“Even though the Kia Sedona is an ultra-functional minivan, it manages to be quite stylish as well, and to our eyes, it’s the best looking minivan available,” said Brian Moody, executive editor of AutoTrader.
“The interior textures and available colors are excellent and that is backed up with a quiet comfortable ride that feels more like a luxury sedan than a family wagon. 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 easier.
“Useful, stylish, affordable and packed with thoughtful features at every trim level, the Kia Sedona is simply an excellent family car no matter what else you’re considering.”
