Stereotyped as the typical mom-machine, the minivan segment constantly gets a bad rap, earning a reputation for providing parents with a practical—and extremely dowdy—method of transportation. That is, until the 2015 Kia Sedona. Kia has a foundation of shaking up the industry’s concept of style, and the 2015 Sedona is no exception. In fact, this new minivan is so stylish that it was recently awarded the J.D. Power APEAL Award in the minivan segment.
When purchasing the 2015 Kia Sedona, consumers receive a practical, versatile, and comfortable vehicle—without sacrificing style. Edgy body lines, clear cut angles, and a modern front end give the Sedona an unexpected look, while the 276-horsepower V6 engine provides plenty of power.
The J.D. Power Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout (APEAL) award is an accolade that measures how satisfying a vehicle is to own and drive. Based on the evaluations of 77 vehicle attributes, the winner of each segment is truly the best of the best.
This new trophy for the 2015 Sedona comes on the tail of Kia receiving the honor of being the highest ranked non-luxury brand in the 2015 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study. Like the APEAL award, this study recognizes carmakers based on owner experiences during a specific model year.
