What Changes to expect For 2016:

  • Sedona is going to retain the eye-catching exterior design
  • Expect no changes “under the hood”; the V6 GDI engine stays there

  • The automaker may also introduce additional exterior color choices

    It desperately needs the 8 speed auto from the genesis to get the MPG up.

  4. Pack says:

    At Ottawa ON auto show, KIA (not dealer) rep informed 2016 will have AWD and 1500 lb increase to towing capacity. re 2015, I found the component for 2nd row seating adjustment devices felt weak and likely to break over time. Someone warned the dash lighting is not easy on eyes and to check out prior to purchase. Otherwise, two thumbs up !

    Had a 2016 Kia Sedona as a rental for a trip from NJ to FL, it was a great van, loved the 8 seats plenty of room for everyone. Plenty of back space as well. Sort of sorry I bought my mid-size SUV I did cause this van was really nice.
