Kia Sedona Minivan Will Be New for 2022, and Here's a First Look
From the car and driver
Kia has released a sketch of the next generation Sedona minivan that shows a preview of its style.
The current Sedona has been around since 2015 and it has to be redesigned to keep up with newer minivan competitors.
We expect the new Sedona 2022 to arrive in the U.S. sometime in 2021.
Kia is one of the few automakers that still sell a minivan in the U.S., and the Sedona is about to be redesigned. This sketch shows a preview of the new Kia Sedona 2022, which will be launched later this year before arriving in America next year.
We like what we've seen so far because the new Sedona has clear lines and nice details. We expect it to run on a new platform that may be shared with the Kia Telluride and will continue to use a naturally aspirated V-6 engine. Inside, all sorts of family-oriented features will be available, including possibly a refined version of the optional second-row lounge-style seats with footrests.
The new Sedona is geared to the current state of the minivan, as the Toyota Sienna has just received a bold redesign for 2021 and the Chrysler Pacifica and Honda Odyssey have recently been updated. The Kia sells in fewer numbers than these more established rivals, but this new model may be looking for a larger piece of the shrinking minivan cake.
