The 2022 Kia Carnival Has Entered the Chat | CAR MOM TOUR
She's here! The highly requested 2022 Kia Carnival! The Carnival is replacing Kia's Sedona and is brand new for 2022. First impressions, it may be love at first drive. I am loving all the standard safety features, the car seat set ups, cup holders and trunk space! This car was made for hauling kids around. What do you think of the brand new Kia Carnival!?

    Kia Carnival…because Kia Sh*t Show doesn’t roll off the tongue? Terrible name. Apt, but terrible.

    What did you think about the triple track setup for the second row? You can put the third down down and move the second row middle chair all the way to the back. It’s an interesting configuration.

  • AListBeauty

    Great video ! That trim you dislike on the rear exterior of the van, I would compare it to a Chevy suburban type design as opposed to a hearse. Really not that bad looking more like a limo type design

    Did you know you can also make all 2nd row seats face backward? I would absolutely love this on a long road trip. Stick Grandma and Grandpa back there with 4 kids and it sounds like heaven.

    Agree the name is seriously awful. Thinking of starting an Etsy business to sell "Kia Prodigy" badge replacements for Carnival owners. Could make a killing!!

    Unfortunately when you go to the dealer the ticket price will be marked up by around 8k depending on where you are

  • Bec

    I think it looks so awful in the white. It highlights the more “minivan” shape of it. It looks like the Chevy Traverse. Especially with the silver piece behind the rear door.

    Appreciate your review. I just bought one the other day but have not take possession as it was still plastic wrapped. I like your details of features. I agree with you about the rear decor on the window made the black one look like a hearse!! At my age that is not what I want to see. Thanks again.

    So I know rear facing car seat fits well in third row, but what is the real world experience of getting a kid in and out? We have newborn triplets and a three year old, so need to fit three rear facing and a front.

  • Flamzz

    I have this got it yesterday it awesome rlly recommend but it took us 3 weeks to find someone who actually had it Edit: this is an ex model in the video but I bought the sx prestige it way better with 2 sunroofs that both open and has an ottoman and 2 TVs u can search up

  • RamsnDodgersfan

    The vehicle is on my short list, happy they went with the removable second row so you can completely turn it into a cargo van. Would really like to see an all wheel drive version with WiFi would make me pull the trigger.

    My wife loves this car, so we're planning on going to Kia in hopes they have enough in stock. This is definitely a road trip type of vehicle. Thanks for the vid!

    Kia called it a Carnival to match what this vehicle has be called in other markets previously. So now this vehicle has the same name as it does all over the world where it's sold. I just wish it had more torque and power with all wheel drive.

    • Michelle Tolman
      Michelle Tolman

      Agreed. It's a great vehicle, but why wouldn't they at least make the upper trims with the option of more torque and AWD. That's a deal breaker for me.

    Just test drove a Carnival! Didn’t even feel like I was driving a big 8 passenger the ride was so smooth. Accelerated great for when I need to get on and off the highway. Took your advice and brought my stroller, baby car seat, all my other baby crap, and set everything up as if it were ours to see how it all fit. AMAZING SPACE! The trunk with the 3rd row up made my Vista stroller look like a small umbrella stroller there was so much extra space. Beyond impressed! The husband and I decided this will be our new car when we car shop later this year.

    Kia Carnival is luxury vans in here and successor of Kia Alveno (1991-1997)

    How? Its only 2021 so that would make it a 2021

    My next mini van for sure but in purple 😂 my favorite color

  • iFM

    You forgot to mention that you can configure the seating to face each other (limo style), meaning take out the middle row and reverse so it faces the 3rd room. I think thats a game changer, period. I would also remove one of the captains chair (on the passenger side) so you can slide in and out without having to slither into it.

  • Arthur Robles

    Checking out reviews for this minivan/MPV and came across yours.. really liked your offering. Nice and thorough with stuff that no one else points out (hearse comparison, funny). Really thorough. I agree, the name could have been better.. but apparently, it's the global name to keep everything consistent. Also, really liked your build- your- vehicle options at the end. Never see that from anyone else. Great way to share the trim levels and cost. Great review!

    Okay, first off, I love all of your reviews and have also really enjoyed following along on your Instagram 🤩 We got the EX trim and it has the same rear entertainment system as the 2021Telluride rather than what is advertised for the 2022 Carnivals. No one at the dealership seems to have answers as to why they are different. The entertainment system advertised for the Carnival has a kids mode which we were super excited for but ours doesn’t have it. Any idea as to why this may be?

    You can reverse the center seat backwards & you can pull a car seat in the center seat closer to the front to reach for your baby
