Plan Your Summer Road Trips with the 2016 Kia Sedona

When it comes to finding a new vehicle, I have found that there are so many to choose from. For me, when I am shopping for a new car, I think about what will not only make for a great fit for me but also for my family as well. I take into consideration not only the gas mileage that I can get with a new car, but also the room, comfort, technology and convenience one can offer. So when we were given the chance to check out the 2016 Kia Sedona, I was both excited and curious to see what all it has to offer!

First off, I must say, the way that they have made the operating of the features so simple, makes the Kia Sedona really stand out for me. I mean, the one handed features such as the automatic opening and closing of the sliding side doors, makes the everyday life of any parent or caregiver a lot more simpler especially when you end up having to do most things one handed. I can not only control this feature from the inside of the car in several areas, but I can also access the feature from the key controller as well. I can also lock the feature just like a child lock, so when the kids are in the car they can not use the button that is on the doors in the back to open and close them.

Second, I found the comfort of not only the basic ride, but the reclining seats for long distance rides to be a huge plus! I mean, the seats are simple to set when you want to recline them, and with the recline you get both back and leg support. This can make all the difference when traveling not only with kids but with anyone.

Third, along with the amazing comfort that you get with the 2016 Kia Sedona, I can also appreciate the technology that is available. From the radio and dvd player to keep you and your family entertained,  to the air cooling that you can get when you place your water bottles in the glove compartment to keep them cool and the cameras that offer a 360 view when backing out, parking as well as so much more!

Then when it comes to the storage space that you can get, well first I have to say that the deep cargo space in the back helps to keep groceries in place and from sliding around the vehicle. I also like that just like with the doors, you get one handed features that make setting down the seats and even putting them back up very easy to do, and you can even close the back hatch easily with just the press of a button either on the key or on the door! Which in all, makes the 2016 Kia Sedona a great choice to go with when you are in the market for a mini van that offers comfort, room, and technology!

I was loaned a vehicle for a week long test drive, thank you to Drive Shop USA for supplying me with the vehicle for this review, all opinions are my own.
