2018 Kia Sedona Driving Impressions


Occupants can anticipate a softly supple, well-composed ride. Not surprisingly, handling is on the sluggish side. Tires can squeal considerably when cornering, accompanied by body lean.

Acceleration is less than spirited, due in part to vehicle weight, but satisfactory for this league. Fuel economy trails that of newer minivan models. Some shakiness in the steering column might be noted, but the Sedona isn’t prone to wander past the highway’s crown.

On the whole, the Sedona behaves more like a minivan from the past than the present day. A Sedona can tow up to 3,500 pounds, though a full load of passengers could turn that task into a struggle.

Gas mileage varies slightly by mode, reflecting a difference between power-steering systems. Base Sedonas are EPA-rated at 18/24 mpg City/Highway, or 20 mpg Combined. SX trim is EPA-rated at 18/25 mpg City/Highway, or 21 mpg Combined, whereas the SX Limited estimate dips to 17/22 mpg City/Highway, or 19 mpg Combined.
