Vehicle Overview

For the 2018 model year, it's business as usual for the Sedona, KIA's minivan entry. With no major changes as it continues its third production cycle, the Sedona is solidified in the top tier of the minivan segment because of its high-grade interior, powerful engine, and attractive styling. The 2018 KIA Sedona is split into five trims: L, LX, EX, SX, and SX Limited.

2018 KIA Sedona's Exterior

The base-level exterior features of the 2018 KIA Sedona include a rear spoiler, projector-beam headlights with auto light control, side mirrors with LED turn-signal indicators, and 17-inch alloy wheels.

2018 KIA Sedona's Interior

The 2018 KIA Sedona is designed as a three-row vehicle. Front seating consists of manually adjustable driver and passenger seats. The second row, which can accommodate up to three people, uses Slide-n-Stow® technology, which consists of a lever to pull so that the seats can be fold up and slid forward. This creates easy access to the 60/40-split folding third row of seats. (Notably, a second-row center is introduced on the LX, EX, and SX Limited to increase maximum occupancy from seven to eight people.) Upgrading to the LX adds an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with 2-way power lumbar support. The EX introduces leather-seat upholstery, metal-style door trim, front-seat heating capability, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Starting from the SX, 8-way power adjustability is extended to the front passenger seat, the 2-way power lumbar support is upgraded to 4-way power, and front-seat ventilating capability, second-row heating capability, and an integrated memory system for the driver's seat and outside mirrors are added on the minivan. Unique to the SX Limited are wood-style door trim and a leather-wrapped and wood-style steering wheel with heating capability. Standard comfort and convenience features on this minivan include remote keyless entry, four-speaker audio, an AM/FM radio tuner, Siri Eyes Free® for voice recognition, a trial SiriusXM® satellite radio subscription, and a 5-inch touchscreen.

Upgrading to the LX adds dash-mounted tweeters to the four-speaker system. However, it's when you upgrade to the EX that the deluge of additions and upgrades occur: tri-zone automatic climate control, a smart key system with push-button, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink® for remote-controlling garage doors, a 3.5-inch OLED color display for driver information, UVO infotainment integration with a 7-inch touchscreen and voice recognition, and Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ for smartphone-based control. On the SX and SX Limited, there's a mode select system for customizing driving feel, 8-inch color touchscreen navigation, HD Radio™, and an eight-speaker Infinity® system.

2018 KIA Sedona's Mechanical

Ultimate stopping power on this minivan is provided by a four-wheel disc system, which comes with anti-lock braking ability to prevent wheel lock-up when the brake pedal is suddenly pressed. A MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension provides smooth driving via absorption of bumps and dips on the road. The L, LX, and EX use hydraulic power steering. By contrast, the upper-level SX and SX Limited trims replace the engine-driven hydraulic pump with a more energy-efficient rack-mounted electric motor for their steering capability.

2018 KIA Sedona's Powertrain

Under the hood of this 2018 minivan is a 3.3-liter V6 engine, which produces 276 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque. Tied to the engine is an electronically controlled 6-speed automatic transmission, which features the Sportmatic® shifter for simulating greater control over gear shifting. Using a front-engine front-wheel-drive layout, the minivan's peak fuel economy is rated at 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. Additionally, it can tow up to 3,500 lbs.

2018 KIA Sedona's Safety

This KIA minivan uses a steel unibody construction to make it lighter than a vehicle that uses body-on-frame construction. At the same time, the unibody makes it safer: thanks to the ability to incorporate side-impact door beams and front and rear crumple zones. Restraint and cushioning is provided in the event of a crash by dual front impact airbags, dual front seat-mounted side curtain airbags, and dual roof-mounted side curtain airbags. Other standard features on the vehicle include a rearview camera, electronic stability control, rollover mitigation, traction control, and hill start assist control. Notably, the aforementioned four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes comes with electronic brake-force distribution, cornering brake control, and brake assist. If you go with the EX or higher, you will also get a front and rear parking assist system to boost the functionality of the rearview camera. The SX and SX Limited get the additional blind-spot detection system with rear cross-traffic alert. On the SX Limited, the camera is replaced with a surround view monitor for a 360-degree viewing perspective. Also exclusive to the SX Limited are autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and smart cruise control.
