The grille is coupled with pretty headlamps with black surrounds and fog lamps underneath. Other features are a roof rack, rear-side privacy glass and a rear spoiler. The boot space is not so impressive which will offer capacity of 142 cubic feet. The painted alloy wheels are 18 x 6.5 inches in size and will house 235/60 R18 all season tires. The wheelbase for the new Sedona is 120.5 inches. The length, width and height are 201.4, 78.1 and 69.1 inches respectively. Maximum towing capacity is 3500 lbs. and maximum payload of 1526 lbs.

Just like the exterior, the 2015 Kia Sedona interior is designed to have neat lines and accents. The interior upholstery is featured in two different combinations; Grey Leather and Camel leather. The rear seats can be folded manually for easier access to the last row and for extra luggage space. The dashboard of the minivan is made of hard black plastic which has many convenience and comfort gadgets like a touchscreen, USB connection, Bluetooth hands free calling system, 6 speaker audio systems and a top class navigation system. The gauges are designed with great care and detail. The only let down might be the fixed center console, which won’t grant easy access to the rear compartment like most vans do.
