The reimagined 2022 Kia Carnival is more than a minivan and more than an SUV – it’s an MPV (multi-purpose vehicle). The 2022 Carnival is taking place of the outgoing Sedona to offer shoppers a new stylish approach to the family hauler.
The Carnival is the first member of the Kia lineup to wear the new Kia logo and it offers a rugged interior and exterior design that is sure to impress. To show shoppers everything the Carnival has to offer, we are pairing it up against one of the outgoing Sedona minivan’s top rivals – the Toyota Sienna. See how the Carnival compares to the current competition in this 2022 Kia Carnival MPV vs 2021 Toyota Sienna comparison from Friendly Kia.
