Our Opinion - 2022 Kia Sedona Review

Despite its age, the Kia Sedona SX is a well-equipped minivan for families thanks to its comfy first and second row seating as well as its slew of SX-exclusive features. A smooth ride and strong body control are also features of Kia’s minivan. There is a lot of power in the V-6 engine, and it doesn’t seem sluggish as you accelerate.

Getting the 2nd and 3rd rows to and from the Kia Sedona might be a pain because of the clunky mechanism that controls them. They take up a lot of room in the minivan and make it less versatile. The Sedona is less family-friendly than rivals like the Chrysler Pacifica but also Toyota Sienna since the second row can only be removed from the middle.

  • Since the LX replaces the previous entry-level model, the LX is now the default starting point.
  • The exterior color Venetian Red has been retired.
  • The Camel Beige inside is no longer available for LX vehicles.


  • It is an enjoyable ride.
  • Assembled with generous supplies.
  • First or second rows are comfortable for long periods of time.


  • The second row is permanently attached.
  • Poor use of time.
  • It’s only available on the top two trims.

With 276 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque, the 3.3-liter V-6 there in 2022 Kia Sedona can tow up to 7,500 pounds. There is an eight-speed automatic available. There are EPA fuel efficiency figures of 18/24mpg city/highway, which is a little lower than comparable vehicles in this class.

The Kia Sedona, already one of the final remaining minivans in the United States, is still a good option for families. The third row of the Kia Sedona collapses into a tub underneath the cargo area’s floor, just like most minivans’ third rows do. You can keep your travelers entertained on the drive with a rear-seat entertainment center that streams information from personal mobile devices.

The NHTSA gave the 2022 Kia Sedona a perfect five-star rating.

The EX and SX models all come standard with blind-spot monitoring but also rear cross-traffic warning as well. There is an option package for the EX grade and standard on the SX trim that includes forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, front automated emergency braking, pedestrian recognition, automatic high beams, driver attention alert, and adaptive cruise control.

It has a total of 142.0 cubic feet of storage space when the third row is folded down and also the second row is placed against the back from the front seats. When properly equipped, this vehicle can tow 3,500 pounds.
