The Kia Sedona: Perfect for Families
Some people still have families and need more than a two-seater car or a compact sporty vehicle. With that in mind, Kia continues to upgrade its vehicle selections to accommodate the needs of its consumers. The 2008 Kia Sedona is a cute minivan that is easy to handle. Itâ€™s perfect for families.
The Sedona earned a five-star crash rating in all four seating positions from the U.S. Department of Transportationâ€™s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It was also selected by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) as one of only 34 vehicles to earn the â€œTop Safety Pickâ€ award for its impressive performance with top ratings in frontal, side and rear impact crash tests.

â€œWe are extremely proud that Sedona was the first minivan ever to earn the IIHS â€˜Top Safety Pick,â€™â€ said Len Hunt, president and CEO of Kia Motors America. â€œTo continue to earn this honor - now for the third year in a row â€“ is yet another example of our dedication to providing quality vehicles equipped with the highest level of standard safety features available.â€
Both Sedonas models offer a long list of standard safety equipment including six standard airbags (dual advanced front and front seat-mounted side air bags, and full-length side curtain air bags for all three seating rows).
The seven-passenger SUV is spacious with a simple-to-operate 60/40 split folding-into-the-floor third row seat to create a larger flat cargo area. One of its biggest drawing attractions is the DVD entertainment system. If you want quiet with a bunch of kids, donâ€™t hesitate to buy this beauty.
Standard features include fog lights, eight-way power-adjustable driverâ€™s seat, four-way power-adjustable passengerâ€™s seat, heated power mirrors, an eight-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with new auxiliary input jack, auto-dimming rear view mirror with HomeLinkÂ®, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power rear quarter glass, trip computer with compass and a roof rack.
The manufacturerâ€™s suggested retail price is $26,565. The 2008 Kia Sedona offers 16 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city and 18 mpg on the highway.
