Five Things You’ll Love About the 2015 Kia Sedona

Change can be scary, but not when it comes to the Kia Sedona. The 2015 model continues Kia’s commitment to quality and style, unveiling a vehicle everyone will love.

“The all-new Sedona is the final model to undergo Kia’s design-led transformation under the direction of chief design officer Peter Schreyer,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, Kia Motors America.

We at Jim Butler Kia are excited about the 2015 Kia Sedona, and we think you will be, too. Here are five reasons why the new Sedona will rock your world:

1. It just looks cool.
The 2015 Kia Sedona resembles a modern CUV with its wide stance, confident cab and standard roof spoiler. But it also has classic Kia features like an integrated Kia grille and headlamps with LED positioning lights.

2. It’s roomy as heck.
The actual height and width are virtually unchanged, but the all-new Sedona provides more front shoulder room, greater leg room in the front, second and third rows, as well as a slightly higher hip-point, improving outward visibility for the driver.

3. Flexibility, baby.
Do you have four passengers or eight? Doesn’t matter, because the 2015 Kia Sedona proportions provide flexible seating in both seven- and eight-passenger configurations. And if you’ve got cargo, second row Slide-N-Stow tracked seating slides and folds upright to allow for “on-the-go” hauling.

4. It doesn’t sweat the mess.
The all-new Sedona is the only vehicle in the segment outfitted with standard YES Essentials™ fabric technology, providing anti-microbial protection from spills and extra-magical stain-repelling and stain-releasing fabric characteristics.

5. Geek is chic.
The 2015 Kia Sedona is the first Kia to offer four new eServices features: Geo-fencing, Speed Alert, Curfew Alert and Driving Score. Plus the Kia App Store connects you with content from Pandora, iHeartRadio, Yelp and more.

2015 Kia Forte Earns Five-Star Safety Rating

As our customers know, safety is extremely important to us here at Jim Butler Kia. We’re excited to continue that tradition of safety with 2015 Kia Forte, which has just earned a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

With an extensive list of safety features, the second-generation Forte compact sedan rated five stars in the side-impact test and four stars in the frontal and rollover tests. Moreover, the 2015 Kia Forte recently was updated with strengthened A-pillars and lower side sills, which contributed to the NHTSA’s high rating.

“NHTSA’s recent five-star rating of the 2015 Forte reinforces Kia’s commitment to safety.  The Forte combines striking design, outstanding quality and the exceptional value our brand is known for with the security of knowing the vehicle you own has performed well in NHTSA’s rigorous crash tests,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning at KMA. “We are extremely proud of the engineering that went into the second-generation Forte, and NHTSA’s testing has validated that effort with this five-star rating.”
