The best tool for the job

It might look as though SUVs and pickup trucks rule the world right now, but if you need to regularly transport up to eight people and their belongings from place to place then nothing really beats a minivan for capability, flexibility, versatility, and comfort. The 2022 Kia Carnival is an all-new replacement for the company’s previous minivan and it shows an MPV can be desirable and stylish as well as being the very best vehicle for the purpose it’s designed for.

Five versions to choose from

At the entry-level, the 2022 Kia Carnival looks like a seriously attractive vehicle for larger families at a seriously attractive price. The base LX model is a great choice for those on a budget but there are four other sensational models in the 2022 lineup if you’re prepared to spend a little more. The second model in the range is the Carnival LX Seat Package and from there the range goes up to the EX, SX, and finally to the SX Prestige. The SX Prestige costs close to 50% more than the entry-level LX, and that shows there are models in the range to suit a wide range of budgets and needs.

LX models are certainly not found wanting for standard equipment as they come with quality cloth upholstery, power sliding side doors, seating for up to seven people, 17-inch alloy wheels, front and rear air conditioning, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Safety is also well taken care of with standard low-speed automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, active lane control, a driver-attention warning, and reverse parking sensors.

2022 Kia Carnival models and trim levels

A capable performer

2022 Kia Carnival powertrain and performance

A vehicle designed to carry up to eight people and cargo in some comfort is always going to need a powerful engine and drivetrain to avoid struggling under a full load and the Kia Carnival doesn’t disappoint in this vital area. All five trim levels utilize exactly the same powertrain which is a 3.5-liter V-6 that develops a very capable 290 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque.
All that power is sent to the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission and the fuel economy is pretty decent too for a vehicle of this size and capability. EPA ratings for the 2022 Kia Carnival are 19 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg combined.

Inside matters

If space and comfort for your passengers is your top priority for your new vehicle then you’re going to struggle to find a better buy than the 2022 Kia Carnival when you get to check out the interior. The cabin is absolutely huge, even for a vehicle 203 inches long and with a 121.7-inch wheelbase, and there are neat and clever storage solutions to be found throughout the interior. The middle seat in eight-seat versions of the Carnival slides forward and can be folded down into a table with integrated cup holders, and all three second-row seats can be removed completely if you wish.

As you go to higher trim levels this flexible, spacious, and practical cabin can be turned into something closely resembling a luxury lounge. The SX Prestige model is available with reclining captain’s chairs that can be heated and cooled and even have integrated footrests, and as well as sliding forwards and backward they can even slide sideways to make accessing the third row easier.
