The 2022 Carnival is a brand-new re-invention on the formerly existing Kia Sedona minivan. Tackling the new year with a fresh design, the Carnival truly represents what it means to drive a vehicle for your family. The Carnival implements sleek crossover SUV styling that remains aggressive while containing all the space inside you could possibly desire. Discover the perfect blend of class, prestige, and utility with the 2022 Carnival!
At Kia, we like to dub the Carnival as a Life Utility Vehicle, a fitting moniker for this vehicle that deserves a segment of its own. With traits of both SUVs and minivans, the Carnival doesn’t fit exactly in either, taking the best of both worlds and combining it with modern tech to satisfy the needs of every family member.
Framing that bold exterior is a host of premium LED lighting that will light your way on even the darkest of nights. Dependent on the trim you choose, the following LED lighting is available:

Are you feeling a bit toasty in the driver’s seat, while your kids are complaining about the cold in the rear? Available Multi-Zone Auto Climate Control easily solves this problem for you, allowing every row to access their own comfortable temperature.

The 3.5L V6 GDI engine is found across the entire Carnival lineup, from the base LX trim—all the way to the top-level SX trim. Powering forth the Carnival is a sizable 290 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. For seamless shifting, the 8-speed automatic provides simple usability.
For a body as large and in charge as the Carnival is, it needs suspensions that will deliver both a durable and smooth ride whenever your latest journey takes you. This is represented in top order thanks to the independent, MacPherson struts front suspension and the Multi-link rear suspension.
The 2022 Carnival offers improved efficiency numbers over the 2021 Sedona of last year from which it evolved. You’ll enjoy a fuel efficiency rating of 12 L/100 km in the city and 8.9 L /100 km on the highway.

Large and high quality, the available 12.3-inch infotainment and navigation screen is your all-encompassing connection to the Carnival’s most advanced tech. Features include split-screen ability to multi-task, voice recognition, and comprehensive Bluetooth ability.
Hands-free Bluetooth cellphone connectivity is available across every Carnival trim to link up your favourite possession to your favourite vehicle. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also standard on every trim, making your most treasured apps available on your Carnival’s display screen.
You may often wish to have eyes in the back of your head with your kids around, but the Carnival actually brings it to life! Well, as close as it possibly can thanks to the Passenger View Monitor, which gives you a crisp display of the 2nd and 3rd-row seats on the multimedia screen, so you can keep tabs on all with your focus still ahead.
Just as the Carnival offers a view inside your vehicle with the Passenger View Monitor, so does it for the outside with the Around View Monitor. Whether it be simple reversing, or more complicated parallel parking, you can get a 360° view of the obstacles around you and park with ease.
Turning left at an intersection always takes your most extreme focus. Twice as much with your most precious passengers on-board. Forward Collision Avoidance Assist adds some peace-of-mind where the system will activate the brakes if it detects a possible collision when the left turn signal is on.
This Blind View Monitor works in connection with the Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist to make sure your blind spots are no longer blind. As soon as you signal your lane change, you’ll be met with a side view display in your instrument cluster of the vehicle in your blind spot.
The entire vehicle is new for 2022, as the Kia Carnival is an all-new model for 2022! New is the Carnival nameplate, while the Sedona name departs. The Carnival introduces more of an SUV look with its minivan structure, taking some cues from the Telluride and its large style. As such, the Carnival gives off a premium luxury SUV look, designed to impress from the school parking lot to your next family road trip.
