If your family is looking for a spacious and comfortable vehicle, look no further than the 2016 Kia Sedona SX-L. I was recently able to test this minivan out for a week on our family vacation. Not only is it comfy, but it comes complete with all the bells and whistles. I was blown away.
Here are some of my favorite features:
The Surround View Monitor feature is amazing! This not only lets you see what’s behind you, but it also helps you make sure you’ve parked straight. It alerts you if you are too close to something in front of or behind you as well.
And there were ALOT of buttons. Buttons on the dash, buttons on the steering wheel, buttons on the console. SO many buttons. We were really utilizing the buttons for the air conditioner since we were in Texas. In July. It was HOT! There were different temperature options for the front and back of the car, which helped keep us all comfortable.
Then there was the radio and the navigation system. Not only could you choose from the local radio stations, but you could also use the Sirius XM satellite radio with tons of stations. Seeing as we were out of our area, the navigation system helped us to get to all of the places we needed to go such as the local grocery store or tourist attraction. The voice command was really helpful, but you have the option to mute it if you like. The touch screen, offered other options such as avoiding toll roads or highways, just to name a couple.
Most importantly, this car offered so much room. Our family of five is used to being kind of scrunched up into a five seater, but this car offers seating for eight! The kids had plenty of room to spread out and have their own space.
The kids had so much space in fact, that they all managed to hide from me in this picture. That center console you see also lifts up to become a seat. Pretty nifty. When needed, we had room for some of our family we were visiting to join us.
The trunk was nice too. Again, at the push of a button, the door to the trunk opens and closes. There was plenty of room for all of our luggage, groceries, etc. while we were using it, but if you needed more room, the seats have a folding feature as well.
We really enjoyed using this car for the week. It was a bit hard to say goodbye to it as it spoiled us greatly. It got good gas mileage ranging from 19-22 mpg. Things like blind spot detection and lane drift alert were also a special treat. You’ve gotta love all the tech that was put into this car.
