The refreshed 2019 Kia Sedona reveals a more refined minivan that maintains the same functional convenience with ample passenger space and cargo, albeit with more style, technology, and amenities.
Wearing newly designed front and rear fascias, the Sedona now sports a similar design language utilized on some of the newer models in Kia's lineup, while a new available rear-seat entertainment system along with other convenience features keep the Sedona's tech roster up-to-date.
Staying true to the CUV-like proportions that came as a result of Kia's design-led transformation, the Sedona's front fascia is defined by a more modern headlight configuration that helps achieve a sharper appearance, with distinctive LED headlamps that are standard on SX and SXL trims.
The 2019 Kia Sedona's Gasoline Direct Injection 3.3-liter V6 engine is now paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission that replaces the 6-speed automatic in the outgoing model. While power figures remain unchanged with the engine making 276 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque, the new transmission is designed to create a more seamless driving experience and help improve combined fuel economy figures.
In addition, the Sedona continues to offer a three-step Variable Induction System that improves engine "breathing" by automatically adjusting the intake runner lengths to optimize engine torque under different load conditions.
The Sedona's award-winning interior adds more refinement for the new model year. Up front, drivers are treated to a more modern center fascia complete with new graphics in the instrument cluster. The floor console between the front seats now features an available wireless charger and sunglasses holder to help minimize clutter.
The Sedona's available Rear Entertainment System adds 10.1-inch dual touchscreens located on the back of the front seats, replacing the outgoing model's single overhead screen.
