An all-new family vehicle joins the KIA model lineup this year: the 2022 KIA Carnival. Featuring a bold, stylish design, everyday functionality you’ll love and technology you want, the KIA Carnival sets the new standard for family fun.
The Carnival is the largest LUV (Life Utility Vehicle) in the KIA lineup, showcasing a wide body stance, large wheels and refined features both inside and out. So, if you’re looking for a unique ride that can keep up with your everyday life, the KIA Carnival is a great option for you.
We’ll highlight some of our favourite Carnival features, and we’ll show you why this all-new ride is unlike any of its competitors. From first glance to the feel behind the wheel, there’s so much to love about KIA’s newest model.
Head-Turning Good Looks
The all-new KIA Carnival is a 3-row LUV that replaces the former KIA Sedona in the model lineup. The exterior boasts sleek, defined contouring, complemented by its available chrome accents found along the front, sides, rear and futuristic front grille.
The Carnival comes standard with 17” alloy wheels, but for added flare, you can opt for 19” machine-finished or black alloy wheels. Thanks to the vehicle’s overall length and large wheelbase, the Carnival offers more room for passengers and cargo overall.
It’s also standard equipped with LED headlights, taillights and daytime running lights. For added enjoyment on the road, you can opt for the available dual-pane power sunroof. Smart power liftgate is also available.
The Carnival is available in 5 trim levels: LX, LX+, EX, EX+ and SX. Each trim offers various exterior and interior features you’ll love. Additionally, the Carnival is available in 8 textured paint options to give you an aesthetic that truly reflects you.
And if you like what you see outside, you’ll love the interior even more.
Unlock your vehicle with remote keyless entry and get ready to go with available smart key push-button start. The interior is fresh, modern and inviting. It also hosts several comfort and convenience features that you and your passengers will love. The Carnival offers 3 rows of seating for up to 8 passengers and available removable second-row seating to help make the most of your interior cargo space. The third row is also equipped with 60/40 split capability. Interior seating is offered in either premium cloth or leather surfaces. You’ll even have seating colour options.
For optimal passenger comfort, the Carnival offers available VIP lounge second row seating: equipped with reclining seat backs and lifting leg rest. It’s a little bit of home comfort on the road! But don’t worry, comfort isn’t just for your passengers, it’s also for you. The driver’s seat is available with multi-directional power adjustment, as well as options for lumbar support. You can also opt for available dual zone climate control and first- and second-row heating and air-cooled seating. And, of course, you’ll have the option of a heated steering wheel.
When it comes to style and comfort, the KIA Carnival will certainly check all the boxes. But that’s not all – it’s also packed with forward-thinking technology that provides you with convenience and entertainment.
