Minivans continue to be a go-to model option for families looking for their next vehicle, followed by full-size SUV variants. Kia has decided to combine these two popular segments of the market into one, all-new model option with a model style it’s calling a “grand utility vehicle.” Over the years, Kia has continued to push market boundaries and exceed the expectations of consumers across the globe. Now in 2021, the brand is ready to debut a new kind of vehicle – the 2022 Kia Carnival grand utility vehicle.
