New Kia Sedona coming by 2014

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 11, 2012

The current 2012 Kia Sedona may be somewhat different from the other models offered by the brand with its younger, sportier direction. But don’t expect a 2013 Sedona minivan to arrive since it has been confirmed that there won’t be one. Kia spokesman James Hope told The Car Connection that the company wants to stay in the minivan market.

Unfortunately, he declined to provide more details and he also didn’t explain how a product would fit into the pipeline. The 2012 Sedona is stodgier than everything else that Kia dealers have. The front end and headlamps of the Sedona were updated for 2011 but when it’s compared to its minivan rivals, it has the most dated design.

The Toyota Sienna, Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, and Honda Odyssey, have all been redesigned. The Sedona’s reputation in the U.S. is quite good. It’s known particularly for its strong value and comfortable ride, as well as for its subpar safety.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave it a very low 'poor' score in roof strength. Its seating is also not as flexible as other minivans, a feature that has made many consumers decide to choose a crossover or an SUV over the minivan. [source: TheCarConnection]
