Known as the automaker’s luxury entry into the auto market, the Kia Carnival is more than just an SUV, and it’s definitely not a minivan. Called a Multi-purpose Vehicle, this MPV has the best of both worlds. First introduced in 2022, the Kia Carnival is not only affordable, but offers an upscale lounge interior with strong and robust exterior style. Plus, the latest in Kia Corp tech, with an all-digital dashboard available in select trims, the future of automobiles.

Engine Type

The new lineup for the 2023 Kia Carnival is LX, LX with a Seat Package (probably leather upgrades), EX, SX, and SX Prestige. Aside from that, not much has changed in terms of engineering for 2022. The same powertrain is doing the heavy lifting, a 3.5-liter V6 engine able to generate 290 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.


The engine is tied to an eight-speed automatic transmission, standard across the lineup. Front-wheel drive is the only drivetrain available, making fuel economy across the lineup also the same – 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. Not bad for larger vehicle, especially one with an impressive 3,500-pound towing capacity.
