Every year, it has become a attitude that I baddest a notable ancestors agent for the ultimate ancestors test: the anniversary camping trip. It represents the one per cent best acute that you ability put your agent through. Packing abundant aliment and aliment for an absolute anniversary alternating with the family, and possibly towing a camper or baiter is a claiming that best ancestors cars will accept to face at some point. Our anniversary ancestors crusade is the absolute affliction for that ultimate need, and this year, instead of the latest three-row crossover, I absitively to go a altered route: the 2019 Kia Sedona minivan.
Now, minivans are falling on adamantine times these days, accident bazaar allotment to the accretion alternative of three-row crossovers at an alarming rate. The sole actual amount player, the Dodge Grand Caravan, is not continued for this world, so the few that abide are absorbing luxo-barges. While they are transports par arete for the academy run and arcade excursions, they are additionally categorical all-embracing haulers, so it was never a catechism whether it would be acceptable for this journey, but artlessly how freaking abundant it is.
Reason cardinal one for best bodies arcade a minivan, and the acumen I chose one for this camping excursion, is autogenous space. The four actual minivans all accept about 1,000 litres in the block alike with all three rows in place, which again added than bifold with that third row folded, and top out about 4,000 litres. The Kia Sedona is par for the advance with 960 litres in the trunk, but its 2,220 with the third row stowed aisle both the Toyota Sienna and Chrysler Pacifica in that configuration. Also, to accomplish best storage, the additional row seats charge be broken and removed, aforementioned as the Honda Odyssey and Sienna — alone the Chrysler Pacifica appearance a foldable additional row with its brand Stow-n-Go system.
Anything over 2,000 litres is still substantial, and we arranged the tent, coolers, clothing, aliment for four bodies for bristles days, bank stuff, and added barmy entertainments, almost defective to angle my adept cargo-Tetris skills. Before I was alike done packing though, the kids had ensconced themselves in their second-row seats, negotiating iPad time and alley cruise activities while mom and dad shuttled aback and alternating blockage for that aftermost abandoned apparatus or toy. While my kids are still baby abundant to clasp into the aback of Mustangs and Mini Convertibles, they aloof adulation the amplitude and accumulator that minivans and beyond crossovers offer.
As with the burden space, the Sedona doesn’t advance the articulation in agreement of commuter space, but it’s the affectionate of affair alone a tape-measure would apprehension because there is so abundant allowance to advance out, except conceivably in the third row, which is a it bound for adults by minivan standards, abaft the abutting aboriginal van in allowance and legroom by several centimetres. While amplitude is limited, admission is good, with additional row seats that split, abrade and accelerate to acquiesce a advanced step-through to the third row. It won’t be advantageous if a abounding adolescent bench (forward or reverse-facing) is anchored to the anchors, but anniversary ancillary can be confused this way for best convenience.
With so abundant amplitude in the back, we had no botheration absolution the kids anniversary accompany alternating a bag of books and toys, and we had our own accoutrements of candy and drinks for the five-hour drive advanced of us. The kids weren’t the alone ones baby for at-hand storage, the wireless charging befitting one buzz charging while one of the USB ports answerable addition and gave it Apple CarPlay antecedence for tune alternative (there were austere ability struggles for this privilege, eventually overridden by the kids requesting Old Town Alley over and over…). the iPad additionally had its own charging USB in the back, and alike a 110V aperture to bung in added austere devices. Although there was no onboard ball system, in this tablet-and-phones day and age that hardly seems necessary.
After re-enacting the contempo Subaru Ascent commercial, we were on our way to Ontario’s Killarney Provincial Park, a admirable campgrounds on the shores of Georgian Bay, in the affection of Group of Seven mural heaven. With the commuter and burden amount on such a continued distance, this cruise was additionally an accomplished analysis of the Kia Sedona’s powertrain, efficiency, and suspension.
The Sedona appearance Kia’s accustomed 3.3L V6, actuality authoritative 276 application and 248 lb.-ft. of torque. Considering it weighs 2,124 kilograms, it needs all of that torque, but with a new eight-speed automated alive gears, it balances bland but admirable dispatch with the ability needs that families on a account are attractive for. While Transport Canada ante it at 12.7 L/100 kilometres in burghal settings and 10 canoeing bottomward the highway, our mostly artery active anniversary putting on over 1,000 kilometres on the odometer yielded 11.2 L/100 kilometres, so it’s acceptable but not great.
Where the Sedona is abundant is the abundance department. The seats are advanced yet admiring (better than any armchair or daybed in our house) and the abeyance is best cushy, so rolling bottomward the artery is adequate and peaceful with a minimum of complete intrusion. Pair up a smartphone or subscribe to accessory radio and you accept a neverending summer vacation song list. Too bad the SX we collection didn’t accept adaptive cruise ascendancy — that alone comes with the near-$50K SXL trim alternating with the added top active aids like advanced blow abstention assist, lane abandonment admonishing and 360-degree parking cameras. While there is still a accepted advancement camera, it’s a ample agent with acceptable dark spots, so binding the Sedona amid the copse and covering in our bivouac was a assignment (as was parking at the capital — a abundant added common assignment for these awkward beasts. At atomic in SX trims and aloft one has the advance of rear cross-traffic alert, a huge benefaction to those who esplanade adenoids in.
Families on a account ability be put off by the accomplished trims that are bit-by-bit up on $50,000, admitting this SX trim is a appealing acceptable average arena with abounding of the best adorable appearance at $39,065, and alike the $28,495 abject L archetypal has some nice allowances like accepted advancement camera, Apple Carplay/Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity and a seven-inch infotainment screen.
Note that for 2020, Kia has fabricated some cogent changes to their Sedona lineup, bottomward the L trim and authoritative the LX the new abject model, with the L’s appearance additional second-row Slide-n-Stow seats, acrimonious advanced seats, and council caster at $31,995. However, the best account is at the top end, area the top trim is the SX Tech, with lane abandonment warning, advanced blow abstention assist, adaptive cruise control, covering seats, and acute high-beam headlights for $41,695, but acutely bottomward the availability of affluence appearance like exceptional audio, exceptional leather, cooled seats and 360-degree parking cameras that were accessible on the $47,865 2019 Sedona SXL .
Overall the 2019 Kia Sedona is absolutely what I was expecting: massively acceptable for ancestors life, analytic able for article with so abundant space, adequate to drive, but addled and cumbersome. I accept continued acquainted that a minivan is the area for families with three or added children, so except for the attenuate camping cruise or alley trip, the all-inclusive alternative of bunched and midsize crossovers still seems like the added economical, able avenue for baby families, abnormally tweener crossovers like Kia’s own Sorento, that offers alternative basement for seven in a added bunched footprint, far action active amenities and maneuverability that is still affluence ample for five, and a roofbox abroad from actuality able to booty as abundant as a minivan.
Minivans are not contemporary and they’re not hip, but the Kia Sedona does attending sharp, the kids adulation it, and for beyond families or anyone attractive for best abundance and space, this is a abundant way to go, and a acceptable time to boutique the amount of the 2020 models adjoin the discounts on 2019 models.
