In the past few years the marriage of style and substance at Kia has been making waves with everything on the Kia showroom floors and with Kia Carnival, a multi-purpose vehicle is for those who need seating, space, or a second car, without sacrificing a generous dash of style at an attractive price.
The Carnival was the first vehicle to be sold in the U.S. with Kia’s new logo proudly displayed on its sculpted hood and pushes the boundaries on all the expected fronts that sports a bold and boxy appearance that is showing off Kia’s visual language.
Once inside the Carnival comes fitted with a three-row seven- or eight-passenger configuration with a best-in-class passenger room and best-in-class cargo room. Offered in four trim levels: LX, EX, SX, and SX-Prestige, there is a Carnival to fit everyone’s needs.
Our SX-Prestige test MPV had heated and ventilated second-row VIP Lounge seating with power controls, wing-out headrests, and leg extensions, in an up-level 7-passenger configuration. Inside the passenger talk cabin intercom system is a great feature. From the driver to the rear seat passengers everyone was able to get involved in planning a road trip to Maine. This is system is standard on EX, SX, and SX-Prestige.
Powered by a best-in-class 3.5-liter V6 engine complete with 290 horsepower getting on the onramp seamless. Capable of 3,500 pounds of towing capacity this is the perfect time to get that boat.
The modernized “tiger nose” grille with integrated high-tech LED headlamps and dramatic hood lines enhance the vehicle’s unexpected aggressive character. Carnival’s sleek design elements inside bring quality materials together to create a sophisticated interior space firmly placing the new Kia Carnival in a segment all its own. Kia Carnival.
