With the introduction of the 2022 Carnival, Kia says goodbye to the Sedona minivan and ushers in a new vehicle completely. Kia calls it a Life Utility Vehicle (LUV), and there are many, many things to love about it.

The battle between minivans and SUVs is a fierce one. Minivans offer the function and space that families need, but SUVs offer the style that they want. Now, drivers do not have to choose between the two. The 2022 Kia Carnival is a new brand of minivan, or LUV as Kia calls it. It offers not only practical space and features but also uncompromising style and modern luxury.
The Carnival blurs the line between minivan and SUV. From the outside, it looks exactly like an SUV. But a pull of the handle will reveal power sliding doors and an interior that offers seating for the entire family. The Carnival offers similar features as the Chrysler Pacifica, Honda Odyssey, and Toyota Sienna minivans, while its exterior style is more in line with SUVs, specifically Kia's popular Telluride.
Powered by a 3.5-litre V6, the 2022 Kia Carnival delivers 290 horsepower and a smooth, powerful ride. It pairs the engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive (FWD). While the lack of all-wheel drive (AWD) is disappointing, drivers do get additional capability in the towing setup, which can haul up to 1,587 kg.

The luxury interior of the 2022 Kia Carnival is filled with high-quality materials that produce a modern look and feel. A panoramic dashboard highlights the accommodating cabin environment, which provides plenty of room for passengers and cargo thanks to its increased wheelbase and overall length
The 2022 Kia Carnival stands out on the crowded streets of Calgary. Not quite a minivan and not quite an SUV, the Carnival stops traffic with its aggressive styling and bold features, such as dramatic character lines and prominent wheel arches.
Kia offers the Carnival in five trim levels in Calgary and across Canada, which provide more technology, comfort, convenience, and safety features as the price increases:
