To open up the seating area, the 2nd-row bucket seats are removeable. The 3rd-row seat is removeable in the base model and folds into a floorwell in the LX and EX trim levels. Available safety features on the 2009 Kia Sedona include ABS, traction control, antiskid system, front side airbags, and curtain side airbags. Optional on the Sedona EX is the Luxury Package that includes leather upholstery, sunroof, power-adjustable pedals, rear obstacle detection, and heated front seats.

For 2009, Sirius satellite radio compatibility--including a trial 3-month subscription--is standard on all Sedonas. An auxiliary input and MP3-compatible USB connector is also newly standard. A navigation system is optional on the Sedona for the first time, though it's only offered on the top EX trim.
Wealth of standard features; excellent safety reputation; choice of two different sizes; good handling
With more standard equipment than rival vans, the Sedona makes a strong appeal on value for the money. The Sedona is also arguably one of the safest minivans, with a full roster of safety equipment and top crash-test scores; it has been named a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS.
