New Sedona MPV Debuting At New York Auto Show, Will Showcase New Styling
Kia’s highly-anticipated 2015 Sedona people-mover will be officially unveiled at the 2014 New York Auto Show next month.
According to latest reports, the fully redesigned 7-seat minivan will be the automaker’s first model to wear an all-new face.
The automobile spies have already caught the next-generation Sedona MPV model on previous occasions, but the front fascia didn’t seem to be a radical departure from the current Kia vehicle designs.
The new Sedona, known also as Carnival in some other markets worldwide, will likely take some design cues from the KV7 concept, albeit in a toned down form.
The new exterior design is not the only thing that is changing, as the 2015 Sedona will also have a new engine line-up, improved safety and technology features, and an increase in the amount of passenger and cargo space.
There are expected to be a number of new technology features in the fully revamped model, including blind spot detection, lane departure warning, and an updated infotainment system that will benefit both the drive and passengers in the rear.
The safety and technology features will also be improved, as will the list of standard equipment.
The completely redesigned Kia Sedona MPV is expected to offer some solid competition for the Honda Odyssey and other minivans on the market.
Pricing and specification details are expected to be released closer to the launch date, with more information likely to be available after its motor show debut in April.
