Kia Sedona Review

The Kia Sedona was originally launched in September 1999 and is now in its 2006 model year.

10 November 2006 Melanie Carter

The Kia Sedona was originally launched in September 1999 and is now in its 2006 model year.

The Sedona has been a huge success. It has consistently been the second best-selling large MPV in the UK, but number one with private buyers looking for value for money from a spacious, practical, affordable, easy-to-use family car.

We tested the 2.9 CRDi GS (Diesel) automatic version priced at £18,595 which includes the 5-speed automatic gearbox a £1,100 option. The GS is the entry-level model but it still has a high standard specification which makes it excellent value for money in the competitive MPV market.

Standard features include: seven flexible seats, air conditioning (tri-zone), twin, front side and full-length curtain airbags, remote central door locking (with panic alarm), radio/single slot CD player with MP3 player & 6 speakers, tinted glass, electrically adjustable, heated door mirrors, dual sliding rear doors (with hold open lock), That's quite a list.

The Sedona is designed to be a practical people carrier and it does this job extremely well. It can carry seven people in relative luxury, although if you are planning a holiday for seven people there wouldn't be much space for their luggage.
