The 2012 Kia Sedona. Family-size comfort, safety and style.

Exterior

Picture -perfect family vehicle
Sedona has a balanced and proportioned look that blends function with style. Available 17″ alloy wheels and a pallet of seven striking exterior colours provide the kind of eye-candy that makes Sedona stand out in any crowd. Of course, this is a minivan with wide, sliding side doors and a large, cargo-friendly tailgate – both with available power open and close functions that you can control from the remote keyless entry system.

Roof rails
Need more room for cargo? Sedona is available with factory-installed roof rails and cargo-ready accessory crossbars available from your Kia dealer.

More fresh air
All Sedona models come with standard power 2nd-row windows for added passenger comfort and convenience. Compare that to some other minivans that charge extra for this feature.

Power tailgate
You can activate Sedona’s power tailgate from the driver’s seat or keyless entry key fob so its open and ready for loading when you make your way to it. It’s comes standard on Sedona EX Power and EX-Luxury models.

Power doors
Sedona EX Power and EX Luxury models come with power sliding side doors that open with the touch of a button. And if they sense an object or person in their way when closing, they automatically reverse to the full-open position.

Interior

Spend some qualiti time inside
Quality and comfort make the Kia Sedona such a great place to spend some time. Tight fitting, well finished trim and standard comforts like air conditioning and a pollen-trapping air filtration system make Sedona feel just like home no matter where your travels take you. A standard six-speaker audio system and available rear-seat DVD entertainment system add to the all-around enjoyment.

Practical luxury
Sedona EX Luxury models come with standard leather seats for pleasing comfort and easy clean-ups – always an important consideration with young spill-happy kids on board. Heated front seats  and a standard folding and extendable front-row side table underscore the practical luxury of Sedona.

Drive focused
To help you keep your eyes on the road, Sedona comes with standard steering wheel-mounted hands-free Bluetooth® connectivity and cruise control. These are complemented with standard steering wheel-mounted audio controls.

Guiding your way
Get door-to-door directions, including points of interest along the way, wherever you travel in North America with the optional in-dash navigation system on Sedona EX Luxury models

Sun and sky
The Sedona EX Luxury is equipped with a standard power tilt and sliding sunroof that bathes the cabin in natural light. With the push of a button, it slides open to let you enjoy driving in the open air.

Safety

Sedona is safety
When it comes to protecting your family, Sedona makes it simple: every occupant protection system and active safety feature is standard, no matter which Sedona model you choose. There are no compromises here. That means you get the peace-of-mind that comes with driving a vehicle with six protective airbags, anti-whiplash active front headrests, electronic stability control (ESC) and a long history of top-rated performance in U.S. government and insurance industry crash tests. Now that’s safe.

For your protection  
Sedona’s advanced front-impact airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags and full-length side curtain airbags work individually or in combination to help protect you and your passengers in certain frontal- and sideimpact collisions.

 

Looking out behind
Sedona is available with a back-up warning system that uses sensors on the rear bumper to warn you of objects in your path when backing up. The EX models include a standard rearview camera system for added confidence.

Smart and safe
Sedona’s standard fourwheel-disc anti-lock braking system is the key to quick, reliable and well controlled braking – the kind that helps you avoid crash situations altogether. It also plays an important role in other safety features, including Sedona’s standard brake assist system (BAS), electronic stability control (ESC) and traction control system (TCS).

Whiplash protection
The driver and front-passenger seats on all Sedona models feature anti-whiplash active headrests that move forward and upward in the first milliseconds of a crash to help reduce neck injuries.

Performance

AT HOME ON THE ROAD
A wide stance and four-wheel independent suspension provide the kind of ride and handling that’s every bit as smooth as Sedona’s looks. And with 271 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of load-moving torque from its standard V6 engine, Sedona has what it takes to make you feel at home on the road. It also allows you to take a lot of weekend and vacation stuff with you, thanks to a 1,587 kg (3,500 lb.) trailer tow rating. Ready to go?

Power and fuel efficiency
Power and fuel efficiency come together in Sedona’s class-leading standard 3.5-litre, DOHC V6 engine. Rated at 271 horsepower, it features Kia’s Dual-cam Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) for effortless acceleration and cruising.

 

6-Speed stepronic shifting
Sedona’s 6-speed Steptronic automatic transmission combines the precise performance of an automatic with a take-control manual shift mode. And it’s standard on all models.

Stability control
Electronic stability control automatically adjusts brake pressure at the appropriate wheel or wheels and regulates engine torque to help you stay on your path. It’s standard on all Sedona models.

Get ready to tow
Take advantage of Sedona’s 1,587 kg (3,500 lb.) towing capacity with a sturdy trailer hitch. It’s just one of many customization accessories available from your Kia dealer.
