New for 2019

The 2019 Kia Sedona gets a refreshed exterior, an upgraded rear seat entertainment system option with smartphone mirroring, and an eight-speed automatic transmission replacing the old six-speed unit.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2019 Kia Sedona is a front-drive minivan with seating for up to eight passengers.

Sedona L: The base L trim comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, a 3.5-inch instrument cluster display, cloth upholstery, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, a rearview camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, keyless entry, a USB port and a four-speaker audio system.

Sedona LX: Moving up to the LX grade adds a six-speaker audio system, power-operated sliding doors, eight-passenger seating, and an eight-way power adjustable driver's seat.

Sedona EX: Midgrade EX models add 18-inch alloy wheels, LED positioning lights, fog lights, leather upholstery, heated front seats, three-zone climate control, two charge only USB ports in the rear, and keyless start.

Sedona SX: The SX trim adds LED headlights, LED fog lights, a hands-free power tailgate, a sunroof, a second glovebox, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, navigation, an eight-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, a USB port in the third row, a surround-view camera system, and driver's seat memory.

Sedona SX Limited: Range-topping SX Limited models get a wireless charging pad, 19-inch alloy wheels, second-row captain's chairs with a leg rest and adjustable headrests, Nappa leather upholstery, a second-row floor console, and two sunroofs.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2019 Sedona is powered by a 3.3-liter V-6 with 276 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. EPA fuel economy ratings are 18/24 mpg city/highway.

Safety

The 2019 Sedona received a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars). The IIHS hasn't crash tested the 2019 Sedona but the 2018 model was a 2018 Top Safety Pick.

In the IIHS' front crash prevention test, the 2018 Sedona received a Superior rating after it avoided collisions in 12- and 25-mph crash tests (Superior is the highest possible score).

On the LX and higher trims, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert come standard. Lane departure warning, driver attention warning, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking are standard on the EX and higher grades. High beam assist is only available on the SX and SX Limited models.

Utility

With all seats in place, the 2019 Sedona has 33.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Fold the second row and cargo capacity expands to 78.4 cubic feet on all models except the SX Limited which is slightly less at 77 cubic feet. Total cargo capacity is 142 cubic feet with the second and third rows stowed. The 2019 Sedona is also rated to tow up to 3,500 pounds of payload with a conventional trailer.

What We Think

In a 2015 First Test, we said that the Sedona offers a well-appointed cabin that feels luxurious, especially in the SX Limited trim. However, the  second-row captain's chairs eat into third-row space, which is tighter than most of its rivals.

Even so, the Sedona won a 2015 comparison test that included the Toyota Sienna, Nissan Quest, outgoing Chrysler Town & Country, and the previous generation Honda Odyssey. Despite its size, the Sedona offered a good driving experience with its well-controlled body motions.

Cool Fact

In other global markets, the Kia Sedona is called the Grand Carnival.
