There were so many things going on at the 2016 New York International Auto Show! Announcements, reveals and awards. Kia is excited to announce that the 2016 Kia Sedona was one of those award winners. Keep reading for more information on which award this vehicle won.

The 2016 Kia Sedona was named Autotrader’s Must Test Drive Vehicles for 2016. To be selected for this award a vehicle has to be available at the time of the award announcement, it has to be a current of next model year, have a base price under $75,000, and offer “significant value for the asking price”. Also vehicles who win cannot score lower than a four on the five-point scale for the following categories:  exterior styling, interior quality, cargo capacity, included and available technology and ride quality.

“We are excited that the Sedona was recognized by Autotrader as a Must Test Drive offering,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning Kia Motors America.  “This award is a testament to Kia’s continued commitment to world-class quality and top-notch design.”

“The interior textures and available colors are excellent and that is backed up with a quiet comfortable ride that feels more like a luxury sedan than a family wagon.  All of our editors love the reclining second-row seats found in the SXL, and other high points that led us to our ‘unexpectedly good’ conclusion include a huge sunroof over the middle and third row seats plus tons of storage bins that make traveling with a family just a little easier.” said Brian Moody, executive editor of AutoTrader.

We have the 2016 Kia Sedona at Folsom Lake Kia in the El Dorado Hills, CA area. There’s also a plethora of other new and pre-owned Kia vehicles in stock. See you soon!
