When is the Kia Sedona getting redesigned? 

Regardless of how you feel about minivans, these platforms still present the best and most efficient way to move large numbers of people or large amounts of cargo. For Kia customers interested in this kind of capability, they will want to ask a Team Gunther Kia product expert about the Kia Sedona. For all the great things the minivan has to offer, its design is started to look dated. So, when is the Kia Sedona getting redesigned? Well, if the professional automotive journalists at are right, (and they usually are) we could see an all-new Sedona platform arrive at our showroom for the 2022 model year. Let’s take a look at what reporter Joey Capparella believes will be included with a potential new 2022 Kia Sedona.

It is important to note that none of this has been explicitly confirmed by the American contingent for Kia. Capparella found this information by looking at Kia websites serving various international markets. He came across some updates for the Kia Carnival, which is what the Sedona is called overseas. However, this is a pretty good indicator of what will be coming to American customers. In fact, this is how things developed for the new Kia K5 sedan

What is going to be different? 

The most obvious change that Team Gunther Kia customers may notice about the photos available in the Tweet embedded on this page is the new exterior style that a future Sedona model could offer. It is bolder and more rugged. And, if you think it shares some of its styling with the Kia Telluride, you wouldn’t necessarily be wrong.  

According to Capparella’s article, a potential new Sedona minivan will longer and wider than the current version which is meant to offer more cargo volume behind the third row of seats as well as additional legroom for those sitting in the rear-most seats. If you click on the link to the Car and Driver story, you will also see some very interesting seating options available.
