Kia Carnival (also known as Kia Sedona) was initially produced 17 years ago by Kia Motors. Originally, Kia Sedona was a minivan, at least first two generations. However, 2016 Kia Sedona is going to be a multi-purpose vehicle. Several major changes were made in order to create vehicle which will be more dominant on the market.
Kia Sedona Review
One of the biggest decisions was to decrease power figures thus fuel efficiency can be improved. Ever since economic crises started people are paying more attention to save money. Kia recognized that thus they created vehicle according to market demand.
2016 Kia Sedona is expected to be one of the most popular vehicles produced by this company so they have very high expectations. Whether expectations are going to be met or not that is up to the buyers but they need to put a lot of effort to attract customers.
Engine of Kia Sedona 2016
The second generation offered few different engine options but the first representative of the third generation will have two engines at most, and it is most likely those will be one diesel and one petrol engine.
Standard engine is directly-injected 3.3 liter six-cylinder Lambda GDI gasoline engine with an ability to deliver 275 HP and 248 pound-feet of torque. This engine is mated with six-speed automatic transmission system and power will be transferred to front wheels.
Unfortunately, there will be no optional transmission system thus all those who are hoping for manual transmission will be disappointed. The second choice will be 2.2 liter inline CRDI VGT. This engine won’t be interesting to you if you don’t live in South Korea due to the fact it will be offered only on this market.
Figures are still unknown and there are no indications when this information is going to be published. We honestly hope that all customers will be satisfied with 3.3l V6 and that it will meet everyone’s demand.
