2019 Kia Sedona Walk Around

The Sedona design wears creases in its sheetmetal that are eye-catching. From the sideview, the Sedona’s shoulder line rises toward the rear, which appears to narrow the glass and make the roof almost disappear toward the back.

For 2019 the Sedona gets a new grille, headlights and taillights. Even the base L model has alloy wheels. The SX gets LED exterior lights.

Interior

The Sedona’s cabin is spacious and quiet. The dashboard is well organized, with controls that are conveniently located up high and a wide center stack. Most models have a 7.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment, while the SX has an 8.0-inch display. UVO infotainment is simple to use and is Apple CarPlay-compatible.

There are two gloveboxes, one of which is cooled, and deep door and dashboard bins, and a massive center console. Top models add a tiered tray and a sliding console armrest.

The front seats are reasonably comfortable, wide and well padded, and the cloth upholstery on the base L model is fine. It has manual adjustment while the other models are eight-way power adjustable, and the EX and SX have leather upholstery with soft-touch materials on the door panels. The SX also features two-tone upholstery and a power tailgate.

The second row comes standard with captain’s chairs, with an available removable middle seat on all but the L model; it seats seven while the others optionally seat eight.

The second row doesn’t fold into the floor as it might on some rivals. The outboard seatbacks drop down and the seat bottoms tilt forward to create more space, and the Sedona’s available middle seat folds flat to create an armrest with cupholders, or it can be removed.

The third row is best for small passengers; it’s fairly easy to reach when the second row is moved fully forward, and it does fold into the floor. The Sedona can carry a sheet of plywood, loaded at a slope on top of the tipped-forward second row.

In that configuration, the cargo space is 142 cubic feet. With the second row upright and third row flat, there’s 78.4 cubic feet. Behind the third row, there is a very healthy 33.9 cubic feet.
