With its long list of standard safety features and robust body structure, the Sedona received a 5-star rating on the NHTSA front-impact, side-impact and pole tests.

"NHTSA's recent 5-star rating of the 2015 Sedona is a testament to KIA's commitment to safety. The Sedona is all-new for 2015 and combines CUV-like styling, inside and out, with exceptional quality and the tremendous value our brand is known for," said Orth Hedrick, vice president, product planning.  "As families [in the U.S.A] begin planning summer vacations in their Sedonas, they can feel confident in the engineering that went into their vehicle and that NHTSA has validated the product with its highest safety rating."

The 2015 Sedona (coming to South Africa later this year) is built on an all-new chassis with static torsional stiffness that is 36% greater than its closest segment competitor. Furthermore, 76% of the body is composed of Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS), which provides exceptional rigidity, durability and crash protection for all occupants. Adding to its stout structure, the Sedona has been engineered to distribute impact loads evenly through the body with ultra-high-strength steel tubes installed in the A-pillars.

The all-new KIA Sedona arrives in South Africa in the third quarter of 2015. More information about engine options and specification levels will be released closer to the local launch date.
