Changed into all-new chassis, with 76 percent Ultra High Strength or High Strength Steel, Kia still kept its, practically the same, dimensions. Exterior is upgraded and modernized, with the recognizable Kia grill. Front lights are swept-back and Kia offered LED running lamps too. Latest Sedona will be available as a model for 7 and 8 passengers, while all seats offer maximum quality and comfort. Rear seats can be slid and folded, in order to maximize luggage space. Rigidity for this MPV is improved by adding high-strength steel details. Inside, longer wheel base made huge difference regarding legroom. Due to the fact that we don’t have full specs, since Korean automaker decided not to release yet, so we can’t give you the list of standards. It is known, however, that 2015 Kia Sedona will be available with many features of highest quality, such as iTunes and Google Play, SiriusXM Travel Link, Siri Eyes Free connectivity, Google Local Search and similar systems that will make your life easier during the trip. Base 2015 Sedona will have 17-inch steel wheels, while other trims will be equipped with a range of alloy wheels, sizes from 17 to 19 inches.
