The 2015 Kia Sedona has had an outstanding year with record sales and numerous reviews that speak highly of the minivan. Most recently, J.D. Power Automotive Performance Execution and Layout award honored the Kia Sedona in their minivan segment. Keep reading for more information about this versatile vehicle.

The APEAL study just celebrated its 20th year and is respected for its insight on new vehicles. This study measures how gratifying a new vehicle is to own and drive, based on customer feedback on 77 vehicle attributes of new 2015 model year vehicles. New owners are sent a survey after 90 days of ownership. According to J.D. Power, “the most appealing vehicles have greater owner loyalty, command higher transaction prices and spend less time on dealer lots before purchase.”

“The redesign of Sedona, which completes Kia’s design-led transformation under the direction of chief design officer Peter Schreyer, is an extraordinary success story for the Kia brand,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, Kia Motors America (KMA).  “Customers want vehicles they’re proud to drive, and Sedona’s superior combination of a strong, confident design, advanced safety features, and premium amenities, is revolutionizing the minivan segment. Earning top honors in the J.D. Power APEAL study is affirmation from our customers of the new Sedona’s appeal and desirability.”

The Kia Sedona comes in five trim levels; the L, LX, EX, SX, and SXL. Consumers can choose from a seven-passenger configuration or an eight-passenger configuration. Some of the technology offered on this vehicle include the Surround View Monitor, the Smart Cruise Control, Blind Spot Detection, and Lane Departure Warning.

The dedicated sales team at Folsom Lake Kia is extremely excited about this honor. You should check out the award-winning Kia Sedona at our Sacramento area dealership. We also have a variety of new and pre-owned Kia vehicles available. We hope to see you soon!
