At the 2018 New York International Auto Show, Kia Motors America (KMA) revealed the refreshed 2019 Sedona, revealing a more refined minivan that maintains the exact same practical convenience with sufficient guest space and freight, albeit with more style, technology, and facilities. Using freshly developed front and rear fascias, the Kia Sedona now sports a similar style language made use of on a few of the newer models in Kia’s lineup, while a new available rear-seat home entertainment system along with other convenience features keep the Sedona’s tech roster up-to-date. In addition, the Kia Sedona’s tried and real 3.3-liter V6 can now be paired with an 8-speed automated transmission.
2019 Kia Sedona Design
Remaining true to the CUV-like percentages that came as a result of Kia’s design-led improvement, the Sedona’s front fascia is defined by a more contemporary headlight configuration that helps attain a sharper look, with unique LED headlamps that are standard on SX and SXL trims. Sitting happily between the headlamps is Kia’s signature ‘tiger nose’ grill highlighted with a comprehensive mesh-like pattern. Below it, a reconfigured bumper and air consumption include a dash of sportiness. Around back, the rear combination lights– total with a brand-new graphic– flank the restyled chrome garnish on the liftgate.
The side profile, specified by its lowered front and rear overhangs and deeply swept windshield, becomes more distinct thanks to recently created 17-, 18-, and 19-inch wheels, based upon trim. And due to the fact that hectic households value a helping hand, a recently included power sliding door button located on the side door manages of EX trims and above is created to be just that, offering simpler access to the Kia Sedona’s well-equipped cabin. Including more flair to the model line is the SXL trim, which comes equipped with a distinct bumper, skid plate, LED headlamps and foglights, 19-inch chrome wheels and distinct side sill.
2019 Kia Sedona Engine
The Kia Sedona’s attempted and true Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) 3.3-liter V6 engine is now paired to an 8-speed automated transmission that replaces the 6-speed automated in the outbound model. While power figures remain the same with the engine making 276 horse power and 248 lb.-ft. of torque, the brand-new transmission is created to produce a more smooth driving experience and help enhance combined fuel economy figures. In addition, the Sedona continues to offer a three-step Variable Induction System (VIS) that improves engine “breathing” by automatically adjusting the consumption runner lengths to optimize engine torque under different load conditions.

Kia has kept peaceful on prices and accessibility, but we need to learn more about that before sales start, likely later on this year.
