After posting a photo of the not yet released 2015 Kia Sedona during the California Dreamin’ event, Frans left the comment: “Can’t believe I’m saying this: cool minivan!” And he’s right. About it being cool but not about it being a minivan. Some have poked fun at Kia’s use of calling this a multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) instead of a minivan but, after driving it, you’ll know why MPV is much more fitting.

Whoo, baby! This thing drives smooth! It’s quiet, responsive, and handles turns like you wouldn’t believe and without any noticeable roll (when you feel like you’re falling over). The adaptive cruise control performed brilliantly and had just the right distance settings.

The interior is modern and sporty and there’s a ton of room in every capacity. The power lift gate only require you stand behind it with the key FOB to automatically open and remembers the height you last had it at so it doesn’t swing open and hit low ceilings. I thought the angling of the navigation and control panel was perfect and the 360° overhead camera view make parking a breeze.

The Drool-Worthy Middle Seats

We had a model that featured the lounge seats. Ooh, these are seriously nice with an expandable ottoman, a full recline, a handle to move the seats outward for more room between, and headrests that can be pulled around the sides like on an airplane seat. I avoided sitting in those seats at all costs so that I wouldn’t fall asleep and miss the entire trip (I sleep pretty hard…and snore loud).

Other models include Slide n’ Stow seats that fold vertically and almost flush against the front seats, maximizing cargo space when needed. No more breaking your back trying to take those middle seats out! The last row fold flat and into the floor. 8-passenger seating is possible with a removable middle seat that can fold down with cup holders or be taken out and rolled around to store. Heading the Sedona’s design team, Jay Chen does a much better job explaining and showing how this works.

Kia really went above and beyond with the Sedona. As the last of the line to be re-designed, they did save the best for last. I almost want to have more kids just to justify us getting this. *ALMOST*.

No, really, with all the fantastic features this is no longer just a “soccer mom” vehicle but one that would appeal to many including empty nesters and grandparents. The amount of space and ease of use is undeniable. The ride is smooth as butter and it’s just a stinkin’ fun vehicle to drive. If you haven’t already, check out the 2015 Kia Sedona as you’re sure to fall in love with it!

I love that the seats fold, in my care we do have to take out the 2nd row seating if we want the full cargo space.

That looks like a great option for families! I was stubborn and held off getting a mini-van as long as possible. Now I don’t know what I would do without it.
