Arriving with a design intended to shake up the minivan segment, the stylish, multipurpose 2015 Sedona followed its debut with a record first-half sales performance and high praise from media and consumers alike.
“The redesign of Sedona, which completes Kia’s design-led transformation under the direction of chief design officer Peter Schreyer, is an extraordinary success story for the Kia brand,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, Kia Motors America (KMA). “Customers want vehicles they’re proud to drive, and Sedona’s superior combination of a strong, confident design, advanced safety features, and premium amenities, is revolutionizing the minivan segment. Earning top honors in the J.D. Power APEAL study is affirmation from our customers of the new Sedona’s appeal and desirability.”
The J.D. Power APEAL study measures new-vehicle owners’ overall satisfaction with their vehicles in the first 90 days of ownership. The results are divided into 10 categories and weighted accordingly: exterior, interior, storage, audio, seats, heating and ventilation, driving dynamics, powertrain, visibility, and fuel economy.
