Our busiest month is almost over, a month that we had the honor to work with great friends and supporters and a great car brand, KIA. Before we started the #OEGiveaway we didn’t know what vehicle we were going to get but surprised with a minivan #Sedona at the steps of my door. When I first saw the minivan I was doubtful about being able to drive it comfortably since I was under the impression that only moms could be expert minivan drivers. I’m a mom at heart but don’t have any children of my own. I could have not imagined how easy, convenient and comfortable the Sedona was, helping #OEDrive be a complete success!
I was in for a surprise. The moment I hoped into the passenger seat I was taken away by the luxurious feel the Sedona has. The leather seats, the navigation system, the control from the steering wheel and the comfortable seats made me feel I was driving a sports car!
The Sedona was definitely a getaway vehicle and lounge while we collected our donations. The Sedona offered comfort to all my passengers with the slide-n-stow seats and all-around comfort options anyone can make the seat their own personal thrown. Airlines should learn from KIA and design seats this good!
This vehicle really cared for me. It is intelligent and responsive and loaded with features that helped me keep navigate smoothly. Features like Blind-Spot Detection (BSD), UVO Local Search Powered by Google, and the Smart Power Tailgate provided hands-free opening with both feet on the ground – extremely helpful when carrying things and have both hands occupied. And the surround viewing through the cameras blew me away, so helpful when parking and calculating space and I sure needed that! Can you spot the camera on the grill of the vehicle? See look at the photo carefully.
The Sedona has an unexpected personality: legroom, luxury amenities in every row, a class-exclusive center console for ample storage and easy third-row access made loading so easy. The dual sunroofs was a treat as we drove from Los Angeles to San Diego in a sunny day – the warm rays re-energized all of us and made us forget we were in a minivan because we felt we were in a small luxury car.
When you are on the go like I was, taking pictures and talking with potential donors your devices will drain fast. But the Sedona offered a great feature: multiple power outlets take social sharing to a whole new level! No batteries needed.
As I drove through Southern California picking up donations, my supporters were also taken away by the luxury car hidden in this minivan. My fiancée and I have decided that the next vehicle we lease or purchase must be a KIA – we completely had underrated this brand and delightfully surprised. Can’t wait for the next car shopping experience.
