A minivan in practice only

For most people who need to transport up to eight people around Bassett, Danville, Rocky Mount, and Greensboro, only a minivan is spacious, flexible, and capable enough for those vital family duties. They’re not the coolest of vehicles, but the 2023 Kia Carnival could be the minivan for people who need one but don’t love the concept of owning a minivan. The Kia Carnival looks much more like an SUV from almost any angle but has the flexible cabin and ease of access you only get with a minivan. Add some car-like driving characteristics into the mix, and you’ll soon realize the Carnival is a van you can love and enjoy owning.

A consumate performer

Vehicles like the 2023 Kia Carnival are designed to get up to eight people and their stuff from one place to another comfortably and efficiently, which means a suitable powertrain is absolutely essential. There’s no need for an array of different power units and transmissions, which is why every version of the 2023 Kia Carnival comes equipped with a 3.5-liter V-6 that develops 290 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. That’s plenty of power to handle a full load of passengers and cargo, and it gets to the front wheels through an equally straightforward eight-speed automatic transmission.

The ride is as soft, comfortable, and compliant as you’d want it to be for such a passenger-focused vehicle. To offer a tangible idea of just how spacious the cabin of the Carnival really is, Kia offers a fourth-row seat in some overseas markets to boost the Carnival’s capacity to eleven seats. And if towing is something you have on the agenda for your new family hauler, the 2023 Kia Carnival is rated to tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Five great options

2023 Kia Carnival models and trim levels

The Carnival may cater to families of up to eight people, but there are five members in Kia’s 2023 household. The 2023 Kia Carnival family begins with the entry-level LX trim level, which certainly isn’t a basic fleet model that retail buyers need to steer clear of. Beyond the base model, the lineup goes to the LX Seat Package, EX, SX, and finally to the range-topping SX Prestige.

Capability and flexibility may be the strongest and most important attributes of the 2023 Kia Carnival, but how looks mustn’t be overlooked as a reason for considering it over the competition. Much of the exterior styling appears borrowed from some of the midsize and large SUVs in the current Kia range, and only a straight-on side view and those sliding doors reveal the true MPV nature of the Kia Carnival. But even from the side, the Carnival is a handsome vehicle that puts the competition in the shade.

A luxury feel without luxury prices

Every 2023 Kia Carnival lineup model is bursting with comfort, luxury, safety, driver-assist, and connectivity features. The higher trim levels in the lineup could easily pass as genuine luxury vehicles that inevitably cost considerably more than the Kia. Standard features include those ubiquitous minivan power sliding rear doors, LED lights, auto headlights with high beam assist, 17-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, sliding and removable second-row seats, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Top Safety Pick status has been awarded to the Carnival by the IIHS, an essential accolade for a family-focused vehicle like the Kia Carnival. Standard safety equipment includes Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Following Assist,   Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Rear Park Distance Warning, and a Rear View Monitor.
