A short while ago, Kia has been rapidly casting its wings far and wide competing in almost all market sections. The Sedona is one of their most popular automobiles. Having undergone a facelift back in 2014, we don’t expect major changes within the upcoming model.
The god thing concerning the Sedona is its exterior profile that makes it look more of a crossover than a minivan. The car is suitable for large families offering comfortable trips even during long journeys. It also offers impressive power output and fuel effectiveness.
2017 Kia Sedona Exterior
The 2017 Kia Sedona exterior profile will be rejuvenated to look more modern. The new changes are moderate just meant to improve its profile.
In front, the vehicle features a redesigned, stylish mesh entrée which sports the automaker’s logo in the center. The grille makes the front ligament of the Sedona look more aggressive. It really is flanked by a pair of swept back BROUGHT powered headlights. The front bumper is bigger and adds to the front fascia’s aggressiveness. The actual bumper is integrated with fog lamps and larger air intakes on its entry level.
At the rear, the vehicle features more elegant BROUGHT taillights while the rear bumper gets a small tweaking. The minivan also features a stabilizer bar and multi-link features on the rear suspensions which enhance its traveling dynamics. The vehicle rides on 17-inch blend wheels but buyers can also opt for 18 in. or 19-inch wheels. The vehicle is offered within five trim levels which are the base T, mid trims LX, EX and SX and the top SX-Limited.
