KIA Sedona Minivan Rent in Dubai
From behind the wheel the KIA Sedona Minivan Rent in Dubai is one of the most fun minivans to drive. It’s powerful, responsive and out on the road it magically feels smaller than it really is. Unlike some of its rivals, the Sedona doesn’t make you feel like you’re the captain of a cruise ship. The minivan’s ride quality is smooth and comfortable, but the Sedona also handles well, with quick steering, good balance and excellent body control. It doesn’t lean way over in the turns and it doesn’t feel tipsy or top-heavy. You’ll be surprised how much this van likes to get thrown around. And it has plenty of power. The large 3.3-liter V6 has a strong kick off the line and its 276 horsepower give it a satisfying surge of passing power out on the highway. Steep grades, even when the Sedona is packed with people and possessions, are not a problem.
Like its competitors, the KIA Sedona Minivan Rent in Dubai has three rows of seats and seating for eight or seven passengers, the latter figure reserved for higher-end trims with the desirable 2nd-row chairs. Although cavernous inside and more spacious than most 3-row SUVs, the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna and Chrysler Pacifica are larger and provide more people space and more cargo capacity behind the 3rd-row seats. Seat comfort is excellent, especially with the First Class Lounge Seating option, which equips a Sedona SX Limited with reclining 2nd-row seats worthy of a living room. We also appreciate the Sedona’s contemporary cockpit layout. It looks great and the controls are intuitive and easy to reach.
The KIA Sedona Minivan Rent in Dubai is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 churning out a healthy 290 hp; an eight-speed automatic transmission is standard. All-wheel drive, unfortunately, is not on the menu, as the Carnival will be offered only as a front-wheel-drive model. The Pacifica has an optional plug-in-hybrid powertrain and the new-for-2021 Sienna comes only as a hybrid, but we don’t expect Kia to offer such a setup on the Carnival, at least not right away. Kia says the Sedona can tow up to 3500 pounds. During our initial test drive, we were impressed with the Carnival’s well-balanced ride and handling. It delivered a smooth ride when cruising and felt composed in corners. The refined V-6 engine provides sprightly acceleration and powered the Sedona to 60 mph in 7.0 seconds at our test track.
Standard equipment for both variants include 6 airbags, ABS, EBD, ESC, HAC, and ISOFIX child seat anchor points, Projector halogen headlights with LED DRLs, Front fog lights, LED rear tail lights, Rear fog light, All round tinted glass, Power folding , ide mirrors with LED turn signal, Shark fin type antenna, Supervision cluster 3.5″ TFT , LED dislay, 4.3″ infotainment system with rear view camera, 6 speakers, Manual air , onditioning, Fabric upholstery, Second row seats with 40:20:40 split folding, Third row seats with 50:50 split folding, Rear air vents for second and third row seats, Remote key, Manual sliding door, Gas-lift tailgate, Active Eco Function, Speed-sensing, auto door lock, Impact-sensing auto door unlock, and 18-inch Clear Silver alloy wheels.
Kia design has become a world leader regardless of price point, and the KIA Sedona Minivan Rent in Dubai is a looker, especially in SX Limited trim wearing its chrome 19-inch wheels. Kia set out to make this family vehicle look more like an SUV and less like a minivan. Key elements are a hoodline with less slope, side panels with minimal creases, and a beltline rising from the windshield pillar to the rear of the van. The front fascia features Kia’s signature “tiger nose” grille and LED accents for the headlights, while the rear sports a roof spoiler and LED taillights.

Available in five trim levels, there’s a KIA Sedona Minivan Rent in Dubai for essentially every budget. Standard equipment on the L includes AM/FM/CD/satellite audio system with 5.0-inch touch screen, Bluetooth and USB/auxiliary inputs, a rearview camera, air conditioning with front and rear controls, and the all-important pop-out “conversation mirror” to keep an eye on back-seat shenanigans. Other road-trip perks include 12 cup holders and tricot-fabric upholstery with built-in stain-resistance. Safety features include a bevy of airbags, traction and stability systems, and hill-start assist control. As with all new Kias, the Sedona has an excellent 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
Fuel-economy ratings from the EPA for the KIA Grand Sedona Minivan Rent in Dubai are 19 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined, which are slightly better than the 2021 Sedona’s numbers. We tested a ’22 Carnival on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen, and it returned 28 mpg highway—2 mpg higher than its EPA rating.

KIA Sedona Minivan Rent in Dubai is offering a lot more standard driver-assistance features this time around, including lane-keeping assist, automatic high-beam headlamps, and blind-spot monitoring, all of which will help the Carnival compete with the Pacifica, Odyssey, and Sienna. For more information about the Carnival’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features are likely to include:
- Standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
- Standard lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist
- Available adaptive cruise control
