You asked for them and here they are. It needs to be washed, but don't they all?



Well that cargo space is certainly nice and large, plenty of room in there. Shocked

Hope it gives as many miles as the MPV has for you.

Be good to give everyone some driving impressions in the offtopic area maybe, and also some comparisons with the MPV. Although I know there is a little bit of an age difference.

Will update this on Monday - off to the Raleigh NC new car auto show tomorrow.

Of course, just window shopping - no desire to replace either car with a new car and payment, and I never seem to win the powerball/lotto. What - you have to buy a ticket to win?!?! Darn it.

Rich. Dark. Deeply satisfying.

Shocked needs to be washed?! I was thinking this sucker sure is shiny. I could almost smell that new car odor looking at the interior.

dw's been bugging me about the mazda3 and vw gti. problem is the the MPV isn't giving us a reason to replace it.


I think I must have missed something vkc???
Nah, you didn't miss anything. She's been pining about her old Golf since day one of the MPV. She loves the van but really prefers a hatch. We got the MPV when we realize either the stroller or little vkc has to go - you can figure who usually won but better that we needed both.

I've personally grown attached to the MPV.

Outside of NA there are 2 Sedona/Carnival lengths available. In NA only the LWB is offered.

Kia had it in the truck section all the way in the back - probably the least traffic area in all of the show's floors. And this was the last photo I took on the way out. It was locked and it was a bit dark - there was a 3rd row but it was folded. I couldn't see if it was a split or a solid bench 3rd row.

I think Kia was doing a reverse psychology thing where if they hide it and don't play it up people will want to see it I don't know

This is currently the most popular size in australia, and I think along with lwb version it is the top selling people mover in Australia. Thankfully they no longer put that dreadful kv6 engine in it. Rolling Eyes
