2018 Kia Sedona Release Details and Model Specs 

Whether you’re a parent or a child, a member of a sports team or heading on the road to see one, you’ve likely enjoyed the space and comforts of a minivan. The vehicle segment isn’t as popular as it was in its 1980s and 1990s heyday, but that only means models like the Kia Sedona minivan stand out even more, with their form and function, along with their versatility, providing the ideal vehicle for a large group to luxuriate and spread out in. 

The 2018 Kia Sedona is a carryover model from the praise-worthy 2017 model year for the Sedona, so a lot of the great features that made this ride a perfect fit for fun-loving families are returning for another go-round! Read on for specs and benefits of the 2018 Sedona!

What is Motor Trend Saying about the 2018 Stinger 4-Cylinder?

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

2018 Kia Stinger Base 4-Cylinder Trim Motor Trend Article and Review

The 2018 Kia Stinger sports car is set to arrive on lots scorching hot (based on the model specs and overall interest so far) in December 2017, and it’s an impressive ride. We’ve compared it with several competing sports car models from Mazda, Toyota, Subaru, Nissan and other automakers, and we are positively drooling over its capabilities. In its three V6 trims the Stinger can reach the stratosphere of speed with 167 MPH, and go from 0-60 in 4.7 seconds. All trims of this sports car, Kia’s first, will have room for up to five with cargo room that goes as high as 40.9 cubic feet with the rear seat folded.  

When you consider the 2018 Stinger is estimated to begin at $39,000 MSRP for its V6 trims (price not final) and around $32,000 for its 4-cylinder trims (this price is not final, either) this is a bargain. Motor Trend published a glowing review of the 2018 Stinger recently, and we’d like to share some details of why this review was so positive!
