Quite simply, the Sedona fits the mold, with an unmistakable minivan silhouette and very little interior detailing to distinguish it from the rest of the crowd.
But most reviewers like the simplicity of design. MyRide.com says that the Sedona looks "classy and stylish," and "while the styling isn't unique, it is clean and crisp, and classy." MotherProof confesses that the Kia Sedona "lured me with its cute looks...it seemed more stylish and better-looking than other minivans." Kelley Blue Book points out that the Sedona doesn't stand out from the crowd, but that isn't a bad thing for this type of vehicle. The Sedona, they assert, "doesn't carry itself much differently than a Toyota Sienna, which wouldn't be impossible to mistake for a Honda Odyssey."
The interior styling of the 2010 Kia Sedona is also very straightforward and functional. Although there is very little said about the overall design of the interior, several reviewers take note of the details, mostly in negative fashion. Car and Driver contends that "some of the interior trim is cheap-looking," while Kelley Blue Book observes that the Kia Sedona has "wood-look trim that's reminiscent of wood-paneled wagons and dens from the Brady Bunch era." J.D. Power isn't so wowed by the overall look either, declaring, "If there's evidence showing how Kia is able to undercut Honda and Toyota on price, the interior is where you’ll find it."
