The Kia Carnival, known in the UK and North America as the Sedona, began production in 1999. It rested on a 114.6-inch wheelbase and was powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produced nearly 200 horsepower. The only gearbox available on the Sedona was the five-speed automatic. In other markets, it had a five-speed manual and a 2.5-liter V6 engine that produced just under 180 horsepower. A four-speed automatic was available for an additional cost.

The early Sedona's suffered from teething problems. They offered few amenities and were known to be gas-guzzlers. It has taken a few years, but the Sedona has evolved into a very polished automobile.

The second version of the Kia Sedona was introduced in autumn of 2005 and ready for production in 2006. It brought with it popular features such as a 60/40 fold flat seat, second row power windows, power sliding doors and liftgate, and a backup sensor. The 3.8-liter V6 engine was capable of producing nearly 245 horsepower.

It has earned a five-star safety rating, the highest honor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration bestows, for all seating in side and frontal impact crashes.
