Kia has been on the move for the last few years, and if that isn’t obvious, the 2022 Kia Carnival should clear things up. Some old Kia vehicles have recently disappeared to be replaced with new names and designs, while other beloved Kia names have gotten major facelifts or redesigns. The 2022 Kia Carnival is an example of the former, replacing the Kia Sedona minivan.
Termed an LUV (Life Utility Vehicle) instead of a minivan, the 2022 Kia Carnival has sliding doors, but its profile and interior design are far more reminiscent of large SUVs than anything else. Its concave grille, silver rear window accent, and early adoption of the simplified Kia logo make the Carnival stand out in the Kia lineup right away.

The minivan style is almost extinct, but a lot of its characteristics may end up living on thanks to the innovative design of the 2022 Kia Carnival. Its great cargo space, impressive list of features, and convenient powered sliding doors make it a wonderful vehicle for families, or anyone planning a long trip and need space for lots of cargo. The 2022 Kia Carnival is unlikely to draw in anyone without children, but it might be a reasonable alternative to a pickup truck with the seats folded down.
