The Kia Sedona is practically a fossil from a previous geological era compared to its American and Japanese competition – and for 2013, the aging Sedona will finally die off. But that doesn’t mean Kia is abandoning the minivan market.
According to Kia, the Sedona will die in 2013, but the 2014 model year will bring about a new minivan from Kia, which wants to keep a dog in a fight that was abandoned by parent company Hyundai, which sold their Entourage minivan for a brief period in the 2000’s. Hopefully the new car rides on a much newer platform and shares styling and components with the new Kia Optima. The current Sedona is a holdout from the days when you bought a Kia because of poor credit, rather than out of your own free will.
