After skipping the 2013 model year and returning for 2014, the Kia Sedona is getting a full redesign for 2015, which we see for the first time in these new spy shots. The new Sedona isn't going to look as much like the 2011 KV7 Concept as we had hoped, but we definitely see some key styling cues from the Kia concept minivan.

Even though it's covered in heavy camouflage, we can see that some of the KV7's cues on the 2015 Sedona include the vertical front marker lights, the horizontal taillights and the pinched beltline starting at the C-pillar. Kia's trademark Tiger Nose grille is present and accounted for, as is the telltale dip in the windshield.

All in all, the next-gen Sedona already looks to be a significant improvement over the current, generally boring model, which dates back to 2006 and has a striking resemblance to the Ford Freestar. There is no word yet as to what will power the 2015 Sedona, but our spy shooter said that this prototype was most likely powered by a 2.2-liter diesel.

      I wonder what design they will copy, since BMW, Audi and Mercedes don't really make minivans.

        Peter Schreyer, chief designer for Hyundai/Kia came from Audi. He's copying himself.

      Please let there by a 2.2 4 cylinder diesel minivan in the market. It makes so much sense from an efficiency standpoint.

      Looks like they're switching to an exterior track for the sliding doors. That seems like a step backward to me.

        Where else would the track go? O_o

          It used to be an internal mechanism, though I see now that was 2 generations back. I hadn't realized they already ditched it.

      Those rims look a lot like Focus SVT ones. Looks out of place.

      Why don't they just bring back the [now new] Rondo? The model sold here in Canada is actually quite nice and can seat 7.

      I for one am excited about a new minivan entering the market. Just because you have to drive your family around is no reason to give up your interest in the latest vehicles. Minivans can be cool!

        Without context of scale, how mini is the new Sedona when compared to the Odyssey? Looks like the prototype is running around Europe and looking at the cars in back, it isn't all that large. If that were the case I would agree it's cool. If it winds up being a 4,500 lb behemoth... pass.

      Placing a diesel in here would be a no brainer and would give Kia a huge edge over its competitors. Averaging over 30mpg and having all that torque for passenger carrying would be a fantastic combination. I'll be watching and hoping Kia is the first to place a diesel in a minivan.
