The 2008 Kia Sedona.

Your family never slows down, so neither do we. That's why we've designed the Sedona to be safer, roomier and packed with a wealth of style, luxury and convenience features to get you and your family from one adventure to the next.

Built to deliver at every level, the Sedona is the first and only minivan ever to earn both a 5-star crash safety rating from the U.S. Government*** and be named "Top Safety Pick"** by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Along with peace of mind, enjoy the versatility of Sedona's 2nd and 3rd-row seating and multiple cargo options. Or, relish in the convenience of available dual power sliding doors and power lift gate which make cargo and passenger loading and unloading a snap.

With an available DVD system, Infinity® surround-sound speakers and wireless headsets, you'll never again hear the "are we there yet?" cry. Add on Sedona's tri-zone air conditioning, 8-way power adjustable driver's seat and one roomy interior, and you'll see why comfort and space are the keys to family togetherness.

Award-winning safety, stylish details and outstanding comfort and convenience at an affordable price. All this, plus an unbeatable warranty means Sedona has everything you need to keep you and your family rolling along. It's easy to see why the Sedona is miles ahead of the competition.

*** Government star ratings are part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA's) New Car Assessment Program (safercar.gov). Model tested with side-impact air bags (SABs). ** Among the eight current minivan designs the Institute has rated, the Sedona is the only one that earned good ratings in all three tests.
