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.
