An important updated to the Sedona vehicle was made with the 2015 redesign when a lot of interior spacing has been added to the car and provided a suitable basis that was expanded with this update. The 2016 additions include upgrading the equipment and adding some comfort elements and continues the started changes which were made with the previous car.

With the given updates made the previous two years it launches the Kia Sedona to the upper tier if minivans. It does not hurt when a car has a very affordable price which the Sedona can also offer its fan base. We are expecting that the Sedona enhances its sales a popularity from this model onward and as you can see from the pictures it also comes with a pretty handsome exterior.

Minivans are usually aimed at performing a certain duty and giving to the driver something that is expected from them to do. It does not matter how they look as long as they get the job done. But the 2016 model of the Kia Sedona is not a vehicle that is hard to look at, in fact it looks quite handsome and appealing for the minivan world. It does get the job done of course but it looks fine while doing it. The design shows us that the produces have taken a lot of risk in fact as they have added some styling cues that are not that expected to be seen on a minivan. Yet it worked out very well for the car as it is more elegant than before and very appropriate looking. The front end carries the most weight for an elegant design as it has been given some swept back headlights design, some new LED lights which all results in a clean look for the car.

The profile of the car retains the traditional one of a typical minivan and there was no attempt to bring any innovation there as none is needed. It is a great looking basis for the vehicle and there was absolutely no need to change how the car appears from the profile view. There is a beltline that starts at the headlights up front and continues all the way to the back of the vehicle. The design of the window is made to step up just a notch and looks the same as the one added to Nissan Quest car. The back side of the car resembles the Sorrento vehicle and has the rear pillars tuck away at the back a bit in a fashionable sense as they wrap around the glass.

The interior of the Kia Sedona vehicle is quite fashionably and luxurious styled. It has some very nice inserts and features that make it a fashion wonder and present it in a greater light compared to the previous forms of this car. As the outside has grown so has the inside of the car and it has been done by incorporating a horizontally laid dashboard, which combines with the two tone look and the glossy piano-black trim. generally speaking the inside is quite bulky but attractive as there are many interesting parts of the cabin that enhance its looks.

There are some soft-touch materials added to the upper part of the dash and the inside of the doors as well. Viewed generally the base level of the car does come with a very nice set of interior materials but these materials get even better and softer as you climb up the trim levels of the car that come offered. This is in fact an interior that does not come with many fancy and high end amenities and it manages to provide a great look without them. A fine inside for a minivan that will certainly serve its purpose and perhaps manage something even more than that.

As there were a lot of changes done to the inside and outside of the car, the under the hood part of the 2016 Kia Sedona has been kept the same as before. The car will continue its use of the 3.3-liter V-6 engine that provides an output of 276-hp. The engine is a proper one and works well as the Sedona does not carry much weight with it as some upper end minivans on the market. The engine does not prove much noise and it keeps the inside of the cabin quiet and appropriate that way. It combines with a six-speed automatic that carries the power to the front wheels of the car and provides good maneuverability. The electric powered steering also gives you a better look when driving the car.
