Kia Sedona – 7 Seater
The Kia Sedona is one of the most economical, largest and easiest to drive 7 seater cars on the market today. Although the functionality and low price have compromised the looks slightly, with the Sedona looking boxier than other similar models, it’s low price and other strong features make up for this slight flaw.
Kia Sedona – Boot Space
The back seats of the Kia Sedona can be completely removed if needs be, meaning that you can either have a 7 seater car with limited boot space or a 5 seater with an impressive amount of room in the back. The car also is also surprisingly easy to drive, with a nice tight turning circle, responsive diesel engine and smooth ride on even rough roads.
Kia Sedona – Purchase Price
A basic model Kia Sedona will set you back £19,795 from new, although a whole raft of upgrade options can potentially push the price up to as high as £25,570. An abundance of second hand parts and good reliability, though, does mean that a number of older second hand models can be bought for as low as £4,500.
Kia Sedona – Servicing and 7 year Warranty
Although the servicing for a Kia Sedona can be slightly more expensive than average, with some first year costs as high as £185 although prices can always vary nationally. This is generally offset, though, by Kia’s outstanding 7 year, unlimited miles warranty.
Kia Sedona – Engines
There are three engine options available across the range of Kia Sedona models ñ a 2.2 CDRi, a 2.9 CDRi and a 2.7 petrol V6. Although the V6 petrol engine should be disregarded as an option thanks to it’s terrible efficiency and sky high emissions, both of the diesel engines offered on a Sedona are solid choices. The 2.2 CDRi is the slightly more efficient of the two, with between 179g/km and 199g/km of CO2 being emitted depending on the gearbox, while the 2.9 CDRi will emit between 224g/km.
Kia Sedona – Road Tax (VED)
The manual gearbox Kia Sedona models which use the 2.2 CDRi fall into Band I for emissions, leaving them liable to £200 road tax and a £300 showroom fee, while the automatic gearbox versions call into Band J with £235 car tax and £425 showroom fees. Meanwhile, the 2.9 CDRi falls into Band K and will cost £245 in road tax and £550 in showroom fees.
Kia Sedona – Miles Per Gallon
