The 2020 Kia Sedona has been recognized by PARENTS magazine as one of the “Best Family Cars of 2020.” For the second year in a row, PARENTS editors and experts praised the family hauler for delivering on value, safety features, convenience and other family friendly attributes.
“Finding the right vehicle for your family can be a challenge since there are so many tech and safety options to consider, but the Sedona makes it easy by starting off at an incredible value so families can opt for more of the desirable features they want,” said Michael Cole, president, Kia Motors America (KMA). “Add Kia’s industry-leading warranty into the equation, and the Sedona becomes even harder for families to pass up – it’s with them for the long haul.”
PARENTS narrowed the field of more than 50 contenders by choosing the minivans and SUVs that received a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which conducts crash tests on new vehicles; a few picks hadn’t received their rating at press time. A Certified child-passenger safety technician Abbie Patterson, owner of the consulting company Super Car Seat Geek, installed an average-size infant seat, convertible seat, harnessed booster, and backless boosters. Finally auto reporter Rob Stumpf took the cars that passed the seat check for a spin—sometimes with his 9-year-old in the back—to evaluate braking, steering, acceleration, tech, and more.
The 2020 Sedona offers functional convenience, ample passenger space and cargo room, outstanding style, technology, and amenities. Standout options that are sure to appeal to families include power sliding door buttons located on the side door handles, hands-free “Smart Power” lift-gate, “Slide-N-Stow” second-row seating, dual-screen rear-seat entertainment, and driver assistance features. The 2020 Sedona starts at $27,6001.
To further help families and customers impacted by the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 outbreak, Kia implemented the “Accelerate the Good” program with payment deferral programs that will continue until further notice. To read more about it visit www.kia.com.
