2014 Kia Sedona Overview

Is the 2014 Kia Sedona a Good Used Minivan?

The 2014 Kia Sedona isn’t a particularly good minivan. There are some good elements; the V6 engine, for example, delivers respectable power. However, its fuel economy is below average for the class. Things go further downhill with the cabin, which has low-rent materials that are a step below competitors’.

Used 2014 Kia Sedona Performance and Interior

The lone engine choice for the 2014 Sedona is a 269-horsepower V6 that handles daily driving needs well. It is mated to a smooth six-speed automatic transmission. While its handling is not extraordinary, the Sedona’s steering is predictable and the ride is comfortable. The EPA rating for the Sedona is 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, which is low for the segment.

There’s room for seven among three rows in the 2014 Kia Sedona. Cloth seats are standard, while leather seats and power-adjustable heated front seats are available. The first two rows have captain’s chairs that provide good legroom. The third-row bench is best left to the kids. The Sedona has two complete sets of LATCH child-seat connectors in the second row and one set on the third-row passenger-side seat.

Inside the base Kia Sedona, you’ll find features like Bluetooth, USB and auxiliary jacks, keyless entry, and satellite radio. The audio controls are well laid out, but the Sedona did not receive a proper infotainment system until the 2015 model year. The Sedona has decent cargo space, but its second-row seats don’t fold flat for additional storage space. They need to be removed if you wish to carry larger cargo.

Should I Consider Another Used Sedona?

The 2014 Kia Sedona was part of the minivan’s first U.S. generation. Kia didn’t sell a 2013 Sedona, and a new generation launched for 2015. You might consider a 2012 Kia Sedona to save money, but it will lack the 2014 model’s minor exterior and interior styling updates – like new headlights and a redesigned center console.

Which Used Kia Sedona Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Kia Sedona comes in two trim levels: LX and EX. The LX trim is not well-equipped for a minivan. It has front and rear air conditioning and Bluetooth. The EX trim adds heated front seats with six-way adjustments for the driver and four-way adjustments for the passenger; leather upholstery; dual-zone automatic temperature control; and a rearview camera in the rearview mirror. These features make the EX a better choice.

With the Sedona’s poor reliability, you might want to consider a certified pre-owned model. Kia’s certified pre-owned vehicles receive the balance of the original 10-year/100,000-mile new-car powertrain warranty, plus a one-year/12,000-mile Platinum warranty for non-powertrain parts. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Kia warranty page carefully.

2014 Kia Sedona and Other Minivans to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Kia Sedona or 2014 Toyota Sienna?

The 2014 Toyota Sienna sets the gold standard among minivans. It’s known for its ample cargo space; roomy, comfortable 3-row seating; and intuitive infotainment controls. Neither the Sienna nor the Sedona handle particularly well, but the Toyota is the only minivan with available all-wheel drive. It also has above-average reliability. Taken all together, the Sienna is the better choice.

Which Is Better: 2014 Kia Sedona or 2014 Nissan Quest?

The 2014 Nissan Quest is known for its stylish, comfortable cabin. Its 260-horsepower V6 is slightly less powerful than the Sedona’s V6, but the Nissan gets better overall fuel economy. Another plus for the Quest is its better reliability rating.
