South Trail Kia
The all-new Kia Carnival is taking the Canadian family minivan market by storm, bringing new levels of comfort and power to this popular three-row format. We now have all models of the 2022 Carnival lineup available for test drive at our Kia dealer location in Calgary, and here's a summary of their features to help you choose the right one for you.
The LX is the entry-level trim of the 2022 Kia Carnival, but it's still a highly specified family minivan. Based around a 3.5L V6 engine making 290 horsepower, the Caravan LX offers plenty of power for daily driving, while the combination of eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive offers smooth and responsive handling. The LX is also well-equipped with infotainment and safety technology, with highlights including an 8" touchscreen display and an active forward collision avoidance system.
The LX+ takes the LX blueprint and enhances it with several desirable upgrades. The front seats and steering wheel are both heated for extra comfort, while the multi-zone auto climate control system balances the temperature throughout the entire cabin. Power sliding doors and a smart power tailgate increase everyday convenience, while wireless phone charging is added to ensure your devices are always available.
The EX model is the next step up and makes some major enhancements to the active safety and driver assist systems. Blind spot monitoring with collision avoidance assist joins rear cross-traffic collision avoidance, while an advanced smart cruise control system makes highway driving a breeze. And lastly, the EX is the first model in the Carnival lineup to be fitted with the UVO Intelligence connected car system, providing a wide range of essential remote services from roadside assistance to automatic post-collision reporting.
And where the EX focuses on upgrading the safety features, the EX+ does the same for the infotainment technology. The standard 8" touchscreen is replaced by a generous 12.3" model complete with in-built navigation, while a 12.3" TFT digital instrument cluster nestles behind the wheel to provide essential driving information at a glance. What's more, the EX+ also features a 360-degree Around view monitor for full visibility, along with upgraded dual LED headlights.
Lastly, the SX trim sits at the top of the 2022 Kia Carnival range and adds to all the previous highlights with several unique features of its own. The pure leather upholstery adds a touch of luxury to the cabin, which is made even more comfortable with power-adjusted VIP captain seats in the second row. There's a passenger view monitor for increased security and peace of mind on the road, and for extra entertainment, the audio system is upgraded to a premium Bose setup.
