2016 Kia Sedona L vs. LX & EX vs. SX & SXL Tampa Clearwater St. Petersburg FL

The 2016 Kia Sedona is a well-respected minivan, and eradicates the qualifier many people seem to have to insert into every minivan comment. As in, "it has a lot of cargo room, but it's a minivan, so it's uncool..." Flippant comments like that are the reason why we're proud to have the 2016 Kia Sedona on our lot, as it's a stylish minivan both Cars.com and Autotrader.com have given much love to. In other words, it's the "un-minivan minivan," which helps explain why Cars.com declared the Sedona the winner of its "Ultimate Minivan Challenge" in 2015, and Autotrader.com named it a "Must Test Drive" for 2016, one of only ten models to make this prestigious list.

Which bring us to our primary purpose: The 2016 Sedona is nice-looking, with a bold, streamlined design and it's won plenty of awards, but which model is the right one for you, if you're looking for something that can fit a lot of passengers, cargo, or both? We'll break it down for you, and look at how the 2016 Kia Sedona L & LX compares vs. 2016 Kia Sedona EX vs. 2016 Kia Sedona SX and SXL trim levels, all available in the Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg FL area.
