Kia Sedona returns from the dead with minor updates

We can't say we saddened when Kia dropped the Sedona in the United States, but strangely the company has brought the model back from the dead after a one year hiatus.

Modestly updated, the 2014 model is distinguished by a new front bumper, a revised grille and LED daytime running lights.

Interior changes are also limited but include a new storage console that is large enough to hold an iPad or a similarly sized tablet.

Despite the modest updates, the entry-level LX comes nicely equipped with air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity and steering wheel-mounted controls. Moving up to the EX variant adds leather upholstery, heated front seats and automatic climate control.

Motivation is provided by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 269 bhp (200 kW) and 246 lb-ft (333 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission that enables the model to return 17 city / 24 mpg highway (US).

The 2014 Sedona will go on sale later this year and pricing starts at $25,900 which excludes an $850 destination charge.
