2011 Kia Sedona Overview
As far as values go, the tweaked and restyled 2011 Kia Sedona minivan and its new, more efficient engine is a worthy consideration for those who need a vehicle to transport their family at a reasonable price.
Saving money on your car purchase always makes sense, and the 2011 Kia Sedona looks to save you money both at the dealership and on the road with its new, more-powerful and more-efficient engine. The 271-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with auto-manual mode, and represents an increase of over 20 horsepower from last and better yet, increases fuel economy as well. Mileage ratings are up to 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway (formerly 17 and 23 respectively). Available in LX and EX trim levels, the Kia Sedona disposes of the shorter wheelbase model for 2011. The Sedona has more power than the Toyota Sienna and Honda Odyssey, and competes nicely with the Dodge Grand Caravan.
Just because it’s a minivan means you don’t have to lose all semblances of style. You’ll be happy to know that the 2011 Kia Sedona receives a new grille and LED turn-signal indicators. A heated front windshield, privacy glass windows, roof rails, power mirrors, and 16-inch wheels come standard, while fog lights, a power moonroof, power liftgate, power-sliding doors, and 17-inch wheels are optional. If you are hauling more than people, the available trailer hitch and wheel locks are a great call.
But you’re not interested in a minivan for the privacy glass. The 2011 Kia Sedona can fit seven occupants in three rows of seats. The second row features one-touch flip-and-fold seats in the second row, making it easier to access the 60/40-split third-row seat that can also stow into the floor for extra cargo room when needed. Front- and second-row power windows, keyless entry, and a USB/iPod compatible audio system all come standard, while a navigation system, Infinity audio system with 11 speakers, and rear DVD player with 8-inch monitor for the kids are all optional. Choose between cloth and leather seating surfaces and cool everyone down with the available three-zone automatic climate control.
When it comes to safety, the 2011 Kia Sedona has you and your family covered with a host of standard features, which include antilock brakes, side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags, an electronic stability control system with traction control, and a backup warning system. A backup camera is available.
Get tremendous bang for your buck with the powerful, efficient, safe, and versatile 2011 Kia Sedona.
