So here is My Black Berry 2015 Sedona EX with Premium package (Beware premium package is not as stated in Sedona dealer books (NO Memory Seats) Other thing to beware of (i'm new to KIa so others may know) UVO is not equal across the board (UVO with Jukebox) and UVO with eServices.... I wanted the eServices and had no idea of the differences, so I have the Jukebox.

Land vehicle Vehicle Car Motor vehicle Minivan

Land vehicle Vehicle Car Motor vehicle Kia motors

Land vehicle Vehicle Car Motor vehicle Minivan

Land vehicle Vehicle Car Center console Luxury vehicle

I chose it over the Sienna:
Better Ride quality - more quiet - More bang for my buck - moderately more attractive - nicer interior - more dynamic driving experience (still a van) but better driving experience - found the front seats more comfortable - WARRANTY!!

Chose over Odyssey:
Because The 2014 I purchased in May 2014 (9300 miles) had already been to the mechanic 4 (YES 4) times, transmission was giving me issues. It would have been a tough choice had I not had that experience....but - Sedona has the more intelligently laid out interior, seats were more comfortable, ride was not as rough - road noise was not as prevelant, interior was more lively (more for a man), styling while unique is not polarizing, surprisingly I find throttle response better on the kia, WARRANTY!!


Best Value - Best choice for my family of 6 (4-kids and Wife) :D

I will say this.....

I dare anyone to drive this Kia, with an open mind, comparing it to the other vans on the market (Sienna, Odyssey, Quest, and the Twins) and not say that it is not only the best value, but a GREAT Vehicle.

It was easily first or second in EVERY category that I evaluated as important to my family during my market research with the exception of seating configurations and storage.

And I'm done... Almost... To those worried about gas mileage, I am averaging EXACTLY what I was averaging in my Odyssey so far. We'll see if this holds up over time....
20mpg (High mix of City driving)...I can't complain

That sure is pretty… my wife was concerned about a red van…. But when she saw that beautiful wine color she fell in love. I probably would have gone with the bronze/brown color should it have been available.

Interesting feedback vs the Odyssey.

Yeah, but if im being honest, the Odyssey is a GREAT minivan choice, however I find the sedona its equivalent. Hopefully kia putting out such a great product will force others to include more for less…. Dollar for dollar, as it pertains to features, materials, quality, general feel, driving dynamics, etc… you cant beat the Sedona.

I dint talk about the Quest but it is also a nice van, it just seemed as if it was not as spacious. No 8 seat model is also a bad choice in a vehicle that will bebutilized for hauling.

Good lookin ride, Kia has done a fine job at making the Sedona a real "looker", only thing that bums me out is the price increase that goes along with it.....

Congrats....

I agree with prices increases as they go more refined. The quality is getting far higher than compare four years ago. :) But still reasonable competitive against it's rival.

Two pictures of my Sedona SX. I don't have any others at this time, but I sure do love it.

The first picture is the day we got it. It is parked next to my '13 Optima Hybrid. The second one was just showing some extreme cold early in this winter (cold for central Alabama that is).
