Moderate overlap front

Rating applies to 2007-08 models

Tested vehicle: 2006 Kia Sedona LX

The Kia Sedona was redesigned for the 2006 model year. The Hyundai Entourage was introduced as a 2007 model in spring 2006 and was discontinued after the 2008 model year.

Driver restraints and dummy kinematics

Action shot taken during the frontal offset crash test.

The dummy's position in relation to the steering wheel and instrument panel after the crash test indicates that the driver's survival space was maintained well.

Smeared greasepaint indicates where the dummy's head hit the B-pillar and head restraint during rebound. Head acceleration from these hits were low.

Intrusion into the driver's space was minimal to moderate, and all leg and foot injury measures were low.

Side

Rating applies to 2007-08 models

Tested vehicle: 2006 Kia Sedona LX with standard head curtain airbags for all three rows of seats and standard front seat-mounted torso airbags

The Kia Sedona was redesigned for the 2006 model year. The Hyundai Entourage was introduced as a 2007 model in spring 2006 and was discontinued after the 2008 model year.

There were no 2013 models of the Sedona, but the minivan became available again with no significant changes for the 2014 model year.

View of the vehicle after the crash with doors removed, showing the side airbags and damage to the occupant compartment.

Action shot taken during the side impact crash test showing the driver dummy's head was protected from being hit by hard structures by the side curtain airbag.

Smeared greasepaint shows where the rear passenger dummy’s head was protected by the side airbag.
