2016 Kia Sedona review, price, awd
Kai’s new MPV segment will get quite a boost with the release of the upcoming 2016 Kia Sedona. This minivan will undoubtedly be one of the best looking cars in its segment, which will be characterized by elegantly improved interior and well as exterior visuals. Apart from boasting of a new engine, this family car will provide further advantages by offering better fuel efficiency as well as performance rates. There are also reports that 2016 Kia Sedona will be available in different trim levels, namely- L, LX, EX, and SX. There will also be another Limited Edition series intended for those with a large budget.
2016 Kia Sedona: Engine Specs
The standard version of 2016 Kia Sedona will be powered by a 3.3 litre GDI V6 engine that will be capable of producing 276 HP and 248 lb.-ft. of torque.This engine, which is also found in Cadenza and Sorento will be mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. The car will have an acceleration rate of 0 to 60 mph in just 10.2 seconds. Performance rates are yet to be revealed by the company, but naturally we expect it to be a better performer all around with fuel efficiency rates also being upgraded over its predecessor.
2016 Kia Sedona: Redesign Exterior and Interior
Exterior visuals of 2016 Kia Sedona will be slightly refreshed since it received the last update quite recently. This vehicle will receive a sporty treatment this time around with a redesigned grille, large air intakes and revised bumpers. To match up with competition, Kia has designed this car to represent a more aggressive appearance as well as give it a much required edge over its competitors. Apart from boasting LED lights, this car will also gain an aerodynamic shape to aid in better handling. There will also be a few colour options to choose from in the upcoming model year.
Interior features are also likely to get an overhaul and sport best in class luxury and comfort elements that go unrivalled in the minivan segment. While most of the features that made its previous version such a hit would come back, we do expect some enhancements to grace the insides of this vehicle. Expect fine quality leather seats, an advanced instrument cluster, and soft touch material covering the furnishing of the car.
Cabin space will also increase on the rear side and allow you to carry more cargo. Additionally, seating arrangements will also receive modifications to provide better posture and comfortably accommodate up to 7 people inside. Technology upgrades of 2016 Kia Sedona will most likely include standard satellite navigation system, cruise control, great quality stereo, safety airbags and added safety for the children seat.
2016 Kia Sedona: Release Date and Price
This reasonably priced, family minivan will most likely see its release either in the middle or 2015 or in early months of 2016. Basic price of 2016 Kia Sedona will likely be somewhere around $ 31 000. You will obviously need to shell out a lot more if you decide to go for advanced trim levels.
