The New 2024 Kia Carnival Review, Specs & Price

2024 Kia CarnivalFor 2024, the Carnival will only experience two minor modifications, both of which will only affect the EX trim. With the exception of a power-operated rear liftgate, this mid-range grade no longer includes automatic up/down power windows.The Carnival is available in four trim levels, ranging from the budget-conscious LX to the opulent SX Prestige, but the EX strikes the ideal balance between features and cost. A power-operated rear liftgate, an in-cabin intercom, and a voice-control system that enables passengers in the back to give commands to the Carnival’s entertainment system are just a few of the convenience features included with the EX trim that assist to make the cost of upgrading more reasonable.

The Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna, two minivan rivals, have measurements that are almost comparable to the Carnival’s length of 203 inches and width of 78.5 inches. The eight-seat Kia has 40.5 inches of second-row legroom, 39.5 inches of headroom, and 35.6 inches of third-row legroom. With 40.2 cubic feet of space behind the last bench and 86.9 cubic feet with it folded, the cargo capacity is equally as roomy. Fold both rows to create an opening of 145 cubic feet, which is roughly equivalent to the Honda’s enormous volume. On the SX Prestige level, captains chairs are a free option.

On the LX level, an eight-inch display, six speakers, seven(!) USB connections, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility are all standard. It’s a jumbled bunch. The 12.3-inch touchscreen, SiriusXM, HD Radio, navigation, wi-fi, remote connectivity, wireless charging, and two more speakers are all features exclusive to the EX and SX. The SX Prestige comes with a quality Bose sound system with 12 speakers and an amplifier.

2024 Kia Carnival Engine

A 3.5-liter V-6 engine producing a hearty 290 horsepower powers the Carnival; an eight-speed automatic transmission is standard. The Carnival is only available as a front-wheel-drive model, hence all-wheel drive is not an option. The Toyota Sienna and the Pacifica both offer plug-in hybrid powertrains as options, but the Carnival doesn’t have either of those options. The Carnival’s smooth ride and handling, which is composed in corners but yet agile when cruising, impress us. At our test track, the smooth V-6 engine propelled the Carnival to 60 mph in 7.0 seconds with brisk acceleration.
