2016 Kia Sedona - Miami, FL
It seems like the minivan market has been slowly culled over the past five or ten years, which means that the vans still around on the market today are the ones that have weathered the test of time. The 2016 Kia Sedona in Miami, FL is a prime example. This van has survived on the market for many years, and has done quite well for itself. This year, the Sedona is sporting an endurance-tested engine that provides balanced performance, stellar safety, and innovative entertainment and convenience technology.
Under the hood of the 2016 Kia Sedona is a 3.3-liter Lambda-II Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) V6 engine. Thanks to the GDI technology, this engine experiences a massive boost in power. It’s rated at 276 horsepower, and 248 lb-ft of torque, which provides this van with plenty of kick to get down the road. The Sedona gets an average fuel-efficiency rating for its class, which balances nicely with the output of power.
The L, LX, and EX trims get 18 mpg city, 24 mpg highway, and 20 mpg combined. The SX trim bumps the fuel economy up a little because of the electric power steering system. This system lightens the engine’s workload, and reduces how hard the engine needs to work — in turn saving fuel. The SX-L gets slightly less fuel economy, simply because it has an extra 100 pounds added on when compared to the other trims.
The 3.3-liter Lambda-II engine has been rigorously tested by Kia, and has proven endurance. Typically, you don’t see an engine in a minivan that is able to withstand 300 straight hours while red-lining. But, this engine was able to and functioned just fine afterwards. Therefore, drivers are graced with an extra measure of assurance in knowing that the engine has been proven to deliver long-lasting and dependable performance.
Kia has always been big on safety, and its 2016 Sedona has trusted and tested active and passive safety systems to make sure you stay safe on the road. Naturally, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is on board, and helps you maintain better control in hazardous driving conditions. It also has a body that’s made of 55% high-strength steel, which was created with patented technologies that provide exceptional durability. The structure itself is designed to absorb and dissipate energy from an impact, and specially-designed front and rear crumple zones help preserve structural integrity in the event of an impact.
The Sedona also comes with Hill Start Assist, which will help keep the Sedona in place as it moves off an incline. The Traction Control System (TCS) works in conjunction with ESC, and while ESC is keeping you on course, TCS ensures that the Sedona avoids wheel spin. That way, you will have the proper amount of grip regardless of the situation.
The Sedona also has a few active braking safety systems. The Brake Assist System (BAS) senses if an emergency braking situation might occur. If it does, it can boost the braking pressure that’s required for emergency braking. Working in tandem with this system, Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) adjusts the braking from the front to rear depending on the load that’s being carried. That way, you’ll have balanced braking regardless of how much weight is in the Sedona, or at which end it’s located.
The Sedona’s safety is proven to be so effective, that it’s been named a 2016 Top Safety Pick vehicle by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), sporting plenty of state-of-the-art safety systems as well, such as Rear Collision Alert, Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot Detection, and Lane Departure Warning.
The inside of the 2016 Kia Sedona can be considered tech-centric. It’s loaded with cutting-edge innovations that are all set in place to help make your life on the road as simple, stress-free, and fun as possible.
The Surround View Monitor is a perfect embodiment of what the technology in the Sedona is meant to do. This system uses four mounted cameras, and projects a bird’s-eye view directly onto the in-dash screen. The result is a virtual 360-degree perspective of your vehicle, which is perfect for backing into or navigating through tight spaces.
The next generation of UVO eServices infotainment system now has plenty of features to make the drive smarter and more fun. Voice commands make operation a breeze, and you can get turn-by-turn directions with it, as well as use Siri Eyes Free to command an iPhone with your voice via Bluetooth connectivity.
My Car Zone Geo Fence Alert is a system that’s run through UVO, and it allows you to set a pre-determined driving zone. If the Sedona leaves the zone, UVO will notify the driver of the Sedona, and the UVO eServices app on your phone.
