Kia has redefined the minivan, adding style to a vehicle that was once merely practical. As multi-purpose vehicles gain popularity again, the 2022 Kia Carnival is sure to become a must-have for families. The Kia Carnival replaces the Kia Sedona, giving the quintessential “mom mobile” quite the makeover.

The 2022 Kia Carnival is available in five trim levels:

  • Carnival LX (base model)
  • Carnival LXS (LX Seat Package provides an extra seat)
  • Carnival EX
  • Carnival SX
  • SX Prestige (top of the line luxury package)

We’ll be sure to let you know when the Carnival arrives on our lot. Stay tuned for more details!

The 2022 Kia Carnival is a welcome addition to the minivan class, proving that you don’t have to choose between style and seating capacity. Choose from eight exterior color options, including:

  • Astra Blue
  • Flare Red
  • Ceramic Silver
  • Deep Chroma Blue
  • Aurora Black Pearl
  • Panthera Metal
  • Silky Silver
  • Snow White Pearl


The Kia Carnival comes standard with Kia Drive Wise Driver Assist Technology, a suite of safety features that includes:

  • Lane Keeping and Lane Following Highway Driving Assistance Systems
  • Blind Spot Detection Technology
  • Auto Emergency Braking Technology
  • Rear Occupant Alert with Ultrasonic Sensors
  • Safe Exit Assist
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Avoidance


The 2022 Kia Carnival ensures a fun ride for every member of your crew, with the most innovative tech and infotainment features. A single 8-inch display screen comes standard on the base model, but higher trims include dual 12.3-inch screens.

Every Kia Carnival offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto – plus, up to nine USB ports throughout the cabin! Passengers will love the dual screens’ device mirroring and wireless capabilities, allowing them to stream media on the go.


Equipped with the most powerful engine in its class, the Kia Carnival features a 3.5-liter V6 engine that generates 290 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. It can even tow up to 3,500 pounds! Only front-wheel drive is available, along with eight-speed automatic transmission.

Cargo Space and Comfort

The Kia Carnival boasts a class-leading 145 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats (second and third row seats) folded down or removed. For ease of entry/exit, select trims allow the second row’s middle seat to slide forward – and it can even be used as a table!

The Carnival SX Prestige is the exception, with sliding seats replaced by luxurious VIP Lounge chairs in the second row. This luxurious seating addition offers ventilated and power-reclining second-row chairs with pop-up foot rests. Rear climate control is also available to ensure comfort for every passenger on board.
