The CEO of Kia Motors America is pretty darn proud of the upcoming second-generation Sedona minivan. That, naturally, is his job, but the vehicle does seem to boast some impressive features and specifications such as surround sound and a 240 HP V6. The price has yet to be announced, and that will probably be the single most important factor in determining whether the vehicle will be able to increase its 6% share of the market. What's most impressive, though, isn't the vehicle itself - it's the rationale for not selling a Hyundai-based version of the same vehicle. There was internal concern about the two brands selling two nearly identical vehicles, and so the Hyundai version was scrapped. I'm not sure what the Koreans are smoking while thinking up such radical ideas, but this sort of clear thinking has absolutely no place in the auto industry.
