A few weeks ago, the family took a trip down to Florida and had the opportunity to visit the Kennedy Space Center. It has always been a dream of ours to visit and bring the kids. As a child, I never had the chance to go and I thought it would be both educational and fun — what more could a parent ask for?
We stayed at The Hard Rock Hotel and had to drive over to the center. Luckily, we were on a press trip with Kia! They supplied every family with a Sedona to test out and enjoy. I am not a minivan mom. I’m not going to lie. When I found out that I was pregnant with my third child, the very first thing I told my husband was that we weren’t getting a minivan. No, really.
Ok, it was more like…
“I’m so excited. We’re pregnant!! We’re not getting a minivan.”
The Kia Sedona is roomy which I expected… but it’s luxuriously roomy. It didn’t feel like I thought it would. I felt like I was in my own car – one that had all the bells and whistles that I paid for to make me feel good during a long haul. Yet, I was in a minivan.
It also gives you several configuration options which is such a PERK for families. Whether we are skiing or traveling with extra baggage, car-pooling with a few friends or doing a heavy load of grocery shopping, this car can manage my needs.
I also love the automated doors. I know this is a GIVEN for minivan owners but I DON’T HAVE THIS FEATURE and it is EVERYTHING.
While I wasn’t able to use this feature in the Sedona since we were testing it out in the Spring and in Florida, I can’t show you any photos… but I LOVED that the Sedona has heated outside mirrors and rear glass. As someone who lives in NY and has had her fair share of blizzards, this is APPRECIATED.
Last by not least, the Kia Sedona gave my entire family the ability to spread out, enjoy our long car ride, and not worry about making a huge mess. Why? Because the Kia Sedona’s YES Essentials® seat fabric helps protect against stains, static, and odors. WHAT? A mother’s dream!
