2021 Kia Sedona for Sale in West Springfield, MA
It may be the age of the crossover, but the minivan segment is experiencing a bit of a resurgence right now. And why shouldn’t these vehicles garner more attention? Over the years, they’ve been supported by an unfair stigma that they’re boring cars made expressly for young families, but realistically, minivans are about as practical you can get without opting for a full-on utilitarian (and, frankly, unattractive) cargo van. The 2021 Kia Sedona is proof that you can own a vehicle that’s good-looking and accommodating for plenty of passengers and cargo.
Trims and Mechanical Components
For the 2021 model year, the L trim is no longer offered, leaving a trio of levels: the LX, EX, and SX. Their smooth power comes from a 3.3-liter V6 engine (276 hp and 248 lb.-ft. of torque) with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The EPA rates the 2021 Kia Sedona at 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. It’s also capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds, making it versatile for road trips with a small camper, boat, or other trailered recreational equipment.
The now base-level LX comes with 17-inch wheels, automatic headlights, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a rearview camera. The EX is significantly more well stocked with 18-inch wheels, roof rails, keyless entry and ignition, remote-controlled sliding rear doors, rear sunshades, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, leather upholstery, and a wireless smartphone charging pad. An EX Premium Package is available to add heated power-folding side mirrors, chrome exterior trim, a sunroof, a hands-free liftgate, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, tri-zone automatic climate control, memory functions for the driver’s seat, power-adjustable front seats, and a 110-volt household-style power outlet. The SX receives the contents of the EX Premium Package, on top of LED headlights, a sound-reducing windshield, selectable drive modes, a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, and a 360-degree surround-view camera system, perfect for helping you navigate tight parking spaces with ease.
As the base model, the LX doesn’t come with any active safety aids, but the EX gets front and rear parking sensors and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The optional EX Premium Package yields forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning, a driver attention warning system, and adaptive cruise control. These are all added to the top-of-the-line SX as standard features.
The base infotainment system on the LX has a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming, and a six-speaker audio system. The EX adds three USB ports, while the SX upgrades its system with an 8-inch touchscreen with voice recognition, integrated navigation, and a premium eight-speaker Harman Kardon audio system.
