The 2016 Kia Sedona at First Kia Simi Valley

A Fun and Functional Ride for the Family: The 2016 Kia Sedona

2016-kia-sedona-300Most people have a misconception that having a minivan means you are giving up on great amenities and a joyful driving experience. This is not the case at all and the Kia Sedona can prove it. There are a lot of vans out there on the market and finding the right one is a bit time consuming.

The new 2016 Kia Sedona is one of the best and most popular minivans on the market. If you are in need of a stylish and smooth riding minivan, then Kelley Blue Book says the new Kia Sedona is the van for you.

Slide and Stow is Great

One of the biggest problems that most people have with their minivan is not being able to haul anything in it. When purchasing the new Kia Sedona, you will be able to get the convenience of the slide and stow system. Each of the seats in the Sedona fold down to create a flat cargo space. This space is big enough to haul just about anything that you want to.

Roomy and Comfortable

Another great feature that the new Sedona has going for it is that it is both roomy and comfortable. When taking the family on a long trip, you want to make sure that they are comfortable and have enough room to move around. The last thing that anyone wants is to be cramped during a long riding experience. The lounge seating that comes in the new Kia Sedona can be very beneficial for a large family. Be sure to test drive one to see all of the unique features and amenities that come with this great minivan.

Getting your hands on a minivan can be easy when visiting First Kia. We have been serving the Simi Valley area for many years.
