2009 Kia Sedona Named as a "Best Buy" by Consumers Digest

Minivan Chosen for Value, Convenience and Style

  • Kia minivan offers abundance of standard safety features and amenities
  • Value-laden minivan honored once again for design and performance characteristics
  • Already a recipient of numerous awards and accolades, including a
    “Good” rating by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), a
    five-star crash safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety
    Administration (NHTSA) and topping Strategic Vision’s Total Quality
    Index (TQI) survey, the 2009 Kia Sedona is now named as a Consumers
    Digest “Best Buy” for the second consecutive year.

    “It is an honor to have
    Sedona recognized yet again” said Byung Mo Ahn, group president and CEO
    of Kia Motors America (KMA) and Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia
    (KMMG). “Being named a ‘Best Buy’ by Consumers Digest goes to the heart
    of Kia Motors’ commitment to offering consumers value-minded and
    comfortable vehicles with outstanding safety features.

    Basing its decision on a
    vehicle’s purchase price and ownership costs in relation to factors
    including comfort, performance, styling and utility, Consumers Digest
    determines a “Best Buy” by evaluating each vehicle against a checklist
    of various design and performance characteristics, including styling,
    interior ergonomics, seating, accessories and amenities, cargo space,
    fit and finish, starting and acceleration, shifting/transmission,
    steering and handling, braking, ride quality and fuel economy.

    The current generation
    Sedona, both Long and Short Wheel Bases, offers standard safety
    features including six standard airbags (dual advanced front and front
    seat-mounted side air bags, and full-length side curtain air bags for
    all three seating rows), a four-channel, four-sensor, antilock brake
    system (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD), a traction control
    system (TCS), a brake assist system (BAS) and a tire pressure
    monitoring system (TPMS).

    In addition to superior
    standard safety features and amenities offered on the previous
    generation model, the 2009 Sedona also now offers SIRIUS satellite
    radio capability, with auxiliary and MP3-USB connection, standard on
    all trim levels with three months complimentary service and an optional
    navigation system for the EX trim line.
