2015 Kia Sedona Spied

The 2014 Kia Sedona got the most modest of updates. It's no surprise, since our spy photographers caught the all-new 2015 Sedona testing in Europe, and it looks much more stylish that the current box on wheels.

While there isn't a lot that Kia's designers can do with the Sedona's overall minivan shape, we can make out more defined shoulders, a big greenhouse, and a large grille. The latter item looks downright massive and should help to balance out the visual mass of the 2015 Sedona; the grille is flanked by headlight clusters that stretch back to the car's corners and have projector bulbs, which will probably help to lend a more upscale feel to the people mover. Speaking of upscale touches, the sideview mirrors are adorned with LED turn-signal repeaters and there is a set of horizontal LED taillights around back. The new Sedona's sliding doors look huge, and there seems to be an upkick in the daylight opening aft of the C pillar.

Expect the 2015 Kia Sedona to offer seating for up to eight, a smattering of cupholders, and a plethora of family friendly technology throughout the cabin. While our shooter wasn't able to catch a glimpse of the new interior, we're sure it will move well upmarket in a similar fashion to other recent new Kias.

No word on what will power the 2015 Sedona. The current model – which initially went on sale in 2006 and was updated for both the 2011 and 2014 model years – is powered by a 269-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Pricing for the 2014 Kia Sedona, which went on sale this spring, starts at $26,750. Expect to see the 2015 Sedona make its official debut sometime in 2014.

This will be a nice addition to the Kia line but I think I would rather they had brought in the new Carens. In Canada this will be called the 2014 Kia Rondo. It basically takes the new Kia Soul GDI engine and puts it in a longer wheel base, more cargo room creased box: http://www.kia.ca/pages/showroom/exterior.aspx?model=rondo
