Kia Sedona facelift spotted testing

Kia Sedona facelift spotted testing

Kia Sedona (or the Kia Carnival as it’s called some markets) is the minivan in the Korean carmaker’s scheme of things. Into its third generation now, the minivan has been the workhorse for Kia in the American market. Plying since 2014 now, the Sedona is in need of a facelift. Here we have, the first shots of the facelifted Kia Sedona, caught while on a test drive in Orange County, California.  

The heavily camouflaged prototype suggests that the minivan will undergo a major upliftment rather than minor cosmetic tweaks. The design element from the recently updated Sportage and Sorento is expected to be a part of the update for the Sedona. There might be a redesigned glass area, tweaked fascia and reworked rear as a part of the facelift.

The key change for the minivan will be under the skin. The newly developed eight-speed automatic transmission will replace the currently offered six-speed unit. The infotainment system will get an upgrade as well. It will continue with the same set of gasoline and diesel powerplants.

Kia is expected to introduce the mid-life update for the Sedona sometime next year as a 2019 model. The minivan is in a need of an update since the competition has taken the game further with the new generation Honda Odyssey and Chrysler Pacifica.
