A minivan that’s genuinely desirable

When you need a vehicle that’s spacious, flexible, and capable enough for transporting a large family from one place to another in comfort around Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, Montgomery, and Huntsville, sometimes, only a minivan will suffice. But if the idea of owning and driving a minivan doesn’t necessarily float your boat, the 2024 Kia Carnival could be the ideal solution. The Kia Carnival looks like an SUV from almost any viewpoint while still delivering the flexible cabin and easy access you only get from a minivan. Add driving characteristics not far from a car into the mix, and you soon realize the Carnival is no ordinary minivan.

Five great choices

Although the 2024 Carnival may be capable of accommodating a family of up to eight people, its own family has five members. The Carnival range begins with the amazingly affordable LX trim level, but don’t go away with the idea that it’s one of those fleet-focused models that retail buyers need to skip. Beyond that, the lineup goes to the LX Seat Package, EX, SX, and finally to the range-topping Carnival SX Prestige.

Even though the 2024 Kia Carnival prides itself on its capability and flexibility, how it looks shouldn’t be underestimated as a strong reason for choosing it over the competition. The Carnival bears a strong resemblance to the midsize and large SUVs in the current Kia family. In fact, only a side-on view will probably reveal that Carnival isn’t actually an SUV at all. Choose the right color to go with the available black 19-inch alloy wheels, and you’ll find yourself in a van that will be the envy of neighbors who went with one of Kia’s less attractive competitors.

An appropriate performer

New 2024 Kia Carnival powertrains and performance

You know a minivan will need to haul heavy loads of passengers and cargo from time to time, so a small-displacement four-pot engine is unlikely to be up to the job. Therefore, an appropriately powerful engine is required, and that’s what every version of the 2024 Kia Carnival comes with. The power unit in question is a 3.5-liter V-6 developing 290 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque, which gets sent to the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission

The ride is as soft, compliant, and comfortable as you’d want it to be for a passenger-focused vehicle like the Kia Carnival. The interior accommodates up to eight people comfortably, with plenty of room for luggage. To give you an idea of just how spacious the Carnival’s interior is, in a few overseas markets, the Kia makes a fourth row of seats available, turning the Carnival into an 11-seater! And if you want to tow with the Carnival, the Kia is rated to tow a maximum of 3,500 pounds.

Luxury in all but name

The 2024 Kia Carnival isn’t a luxury model in terms of its classification. Despite this, the Kia would have you believe otherwise, as every model comes packed with comfort, luxury, safety, driver-assist, and connectivity features. And if you go for one of the top trim levels, you could be forgiven for wondering why others choose genuine luxury vehicles that cost considerably more and deliver less. Standard 2024 Kia Carnival features include those ubiquitous power sliding rear doors, LED lights, auto headlights with high beam assist, 17-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, sliding and removable second-row seats, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

The Carnival MPV – to give it the correct Kia designation – has gained Top Safety Pick status from the IIHS, which is a big plus for a family vehicle. Standard safety features that helped it gain that award include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Following Assist,   Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Rear Park Distance Warning, and a Rear View Monitor. The highest trim levels come with even more impressive standard and available safety features.  For 2024, the Carnival EX trim gets a power-operated rear liftgate.
