The Kia Carnival is the multi-purpose-vehicle elevated to the next level. The new replacement for the Kia Sedona, Kia designers weren't content to simply rest on their laurels for what was undeniably a hit. The result is a new MPV that can carry up to eight passengers. But it's not just a people mover, either. Loaded with new innovations onboard, the Carnival makes living with such a vehicle easy. But It's also the first Kia product to proudly sport the brand's new logo on its sculpted hood, steering wheel and rear hatch. Think about it: The new Kia Carnival is as innovative in its segment as the new Kia K5 is for sports sedans.

What moves the new Kia Carnival?

The new Kia Carnival gets its motivation from a Hyundai Group (Kia's parent company) 3.5-liter GDI V6 engine mated to a precision-engineered 8-speed automatic transmission. Naturally-aspirated, it is a gasoline-fed direct-injected V6 engine. It produces best-in-class 290 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. When properly-equipped, the Carnival can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Riding on the same platform as the sporty Kia K5 and the new Sorento, the new Carnival features expanded use of hot-stamped parts for chassis rigidity and extra tensile strength. There is also increased use of sound-absorption materials to minimize wind, road and engine noise. It results in a better driving experience, lighter vehicle weight and improved drive dynamics. This aero-tuning results in an overall reduction of Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) in this new vehicle.

The new Kia Carnival is loaded with innovation, both under and on the skin. The body has even been aerodynamically-tuned to smooth the airflow over the front wheels and outside mirrors. This results in improved fuel economy and reduced turbulence around the front end of the vehicle.

A look around the Kia Carnival.

The new Kia Carnival features a look like an SUV front with a minivan rear. There’s no denying this, but it gets the best of both segments from this new design. Strong and boxy like the Kia Telluride, the new Kia Carnival delivers a confident shape that directly connects to the Kia product portfolio’s design language.

A modernized Kia Tiger Nose grille gives the new Kia Carnival a wide stance and presence. A bold, high-tech LED lighting system adds to the appearance. A new cutline connects the front to the rear via the side panels, helping to tie the vehicle together visually. The Carnival displays a bold premium look, thanks to 17- and 19-inch alloy wheels.

The Kia Carnival's innovative interior.

Refined and sophisticated, the new Kia Carnival interior resembles a corporate jet inside. Slide-Flex seating for up to 8-passengers allows multi-configurable layouts, including a middle-row sliding seat that allows the front passenger easy access to a person (or baby) sitting in the second row. It can later convert to a functional table.

The Kia Passenger Talk intercom system is here too. It's one of our favorite features, allowing you to carry on conversations with people in the second and third-row through an intercom system. Just think how the phrase "Don't make me stop this car" sounds through that!

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