The great new 2015 Kia Sedona gets a very high grade in cars.com’s car seat test. Using real moms to test the effectiveness of a vehicle to keep your child safe, the Sedona has to be one of the top cars for families.
Cars.com’s parent bloggers test every car in the industry and grade them on the traditional grade school report car scale. The Sedona received an A score in seven of the eight criteria:
Latch System: A
Rear-facing convertible: A
Forward-facing convertible: A
Booster seat: A
Third-row access: A
There was only one where cars.com says the Sedona could improve: Booster Seats in the Third Row.
An A score means there is plenty of room for the car seat and child. To get an A, the car seat doesn’t impact the front seat legroom, and there must be easy access to the car’s third row. The car must also have easy to find and connect latches.
In giving out their score, cars.com test drivers liked the second-row captain’s chairs. The second-row latch anchors were easy to find and easy to connect to. The second row was also praised for its ease of sliding and reclining, and because of that, it was easier to get into the third room. The testers also said older children should be able to buckle themselves thanks to the stable base for booster seats.
The Kia Sedona was redesigned in 2015. Influenced by smaller crossovers, the Sedona offers more space for everyone this year, along with innovative technology and safety features. Read our review now.
