It's still an exceptional value, but the Sedona suddenly looks a little tired within its class and even within its own brand family.
power sliding side doors and power tailgate are options
The 2014 Kia Sedona starts at $26,750, including destination, while the Sedona EX starts at $31,750. That's far above the budget-price and fleet-oriented Dodge Caravan SE, yet in the vicinity, in pricing and equipment, of the Dodge Caravan SXT, Toyota Sienna L, and Nissan Quest S.
Standard equipment on the LX includes air conditioning, cruise control, second-row captain's chairs, keyless entry, satellite radio compatibility, Bluetooth hands-free and streaming-audio connectivity, and an audio system with auxiliary input.
Step up to the EX model, and you add alloy wheels plus leather upholstery, a heated power driver's seat (six-way for the driver, four-way for the passenger), an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a HomeLink universal garage-door opener, power rear-quarter glass, a trip computer, and a roof rack, plus an eight-speaker audio system.
Major option packages are relatively limited and include the LX Power Package (adding dual power sliding doors, automatic light control, 17-inch alloys, auto-dimming mirror, and HomeLink to the LX); an EX Luxury Package (sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, power-adjustable pedals, and driver's memory settings); and an EX navigation option that adds Infinity premium audio and a speaker upgrade.
The Sedona is well-equipped, albeit not the shockingly strong value that other Kia models present.
