New 2022 Kia Carnival MPV For Sale Near Me

2022 Carnival MPV

The New Carnival is on sale at Napleton's Mid Rivers Kia.

The arrival of the new Kia Carnival signals there's a new sheriff in town. The Carnival is Kia's reimagined three-row minivan, SUV or Multi-Purpose Vehicle that pushes the envelope for design and innovation in a multi-purpose vehicle. Take your pick. They all point to the fact the Carnival is the perfect vehicle for those ready to explore the conveniences of minivan ownership but are interested in exploring the Sport Utility world's benefits, too.

The new Carnival was a project of the Kia Design studios in California, which is also the birthplace of the award-winning Telluride and the new 2021 Sorento SUV. The Carnival replaces the outgoing Kia Sedona and, in the process, introduces innovations to the concept of a modern-day MPV. The new Kia Carnival takes the best of the minivan and combines it with the best features found in a typical SUV to make a new and versatile multi-purpose-vehicle. One look, and it will be clear that the Carnival could very well be your next family vehicle.

The Kia Carnival is a next-level Multi-Purpose-Vehicle. It came to be as a result of Kia designers not being content to congratulate themselves for doing a good job on the Kia Sedona. Instead, they pushed hard. Very hard, in fact. The result is a new MPV that can carry up to eight passengers. But it's not just about moving people. Loaded with innovations onboard, the Carnival makes living with such a vehicle easy. It's also the first Kia product to proudly sport the brand's new logo on its steering wheel, sculpted hood and rear hatch. Think about it: The new Kia Carnival breaks as much new ground as the new Kia K5 did for sports sedans.

What moves the new Kia Carnival?

The motivation for the new Kia Carnival comes from an award-winning 3.5-liter GDI V6 engine matched to a precision-engineered 8-speed automatic transmission. This naturally-aspirated V6 makes best-in-class 290 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. When equipped with the available Carnival towing package, this new MPV can pull up to 3,500 pounds.

The new Kia Carnival does some platform-sharing with the sporty Kia K5 sedan and the Sorento SUV. Stronger than ever before, the Kia Carnival features the expanded use of hot-stamped steel for extra-strong tensile strength and extra chassis rigidity. Kia hasn't scrimped on sound-absorbing materials either.  NVH engineers have managed to isolate road, wind and engine noise. The results are an improved driving experience, better drive dynamics and a lighter overall vehicle weight. In other words, this new Kia is aero-tuned for a quieter, more enjoyable ride.

The structure of the new Kia Carnival is not the only thing loaded with innovation. Kia has gone further than ever, both under and on the skin, to refine this new MPV. So much has been done to make the Carnival body aerodynamically-tuned for smoother airflow over the front wheels and the outside mirrors.

A look around the Kia Carnival - Exterior

The new Kia Carnival combines the good looks of a Kia SUV with the benefits of a minivan at the rear. Featuring a new sense of confidence, as seen on the Kia Telluride. Its looks place it directly in line with the rest of the Kia portfolio's design language.

The Kia Carnival features a wide, aggressive stance, thanks to the look of the bold Kia Tiger Nose grille. Intensive high-tech LED lighting adds to the aggressive appearance. A new cutline runs the length of the vehicle and connects the front of the vehicle to the rear using bold panels to tie it together cohesively. Best of all, the Carnival displays an upscale premium look, thanks to 17- and 19-inch alloy wheels.

The Kia Carnival's innovative interior.

The new Kia Carnival interior resembles the inside of a very chic and sophisticated corporate jet. Innovative Slide-Flex seating for up to 8-passengers allows moveable layouts allowing versatility that places convenience first. A sliding middle-row seat moves forward and back so the front passenger can gain easy access to a person (or baby) sitting in the second row. Later, it can change into a functional table.

Available ventilated and heated VIP lounge chairs with leg extensions are an option that we absolutely want. It's the perfect way to give an executive feel to a modern family hauler. Remove the second-row seating and fold third-row seats forward to reveal up to 145-cubic feet of cargo area behind the front row. That way, should you need to, you can carry home a four-by-eight piece of plywood. Or several!

One of our favorite features on the Kia Carnival is the Kia Passenger-Talk intercom system. A great innovation, it allows you to converse with people in the second and third-rows through an intercom system. Just imagine how powerful "Don't make me stop this car" might sound through that system!

The Carnival offers standard hands-free automatic power sliding doors with Smart Key on every trim level. An available Smart Power Liftgate with auto-close can be ordered on EX and above trim models.

"The Kia Carnival is here to disrupt a staid segment and proves once again what is possible when conventions are shattered," said Sean Yoon, president and CEO of Kia Motors North America. "With its SUV-like character, our new multi-purpose vehicle delivers a combination of premium design, intelligent packaging, and an abundance of innovation in safety and technology. For these reasons, the Carnival is the first vehicle to proudly wear our all-new Kia badge and is a bold signal of things to come," he said.
