SUVs Meet Minivans in Kia’s Newest All-Star Family Car


Not all family cars are created equal. Anybody who’s driven an interstate road trip in a cramped sedan with kids in the backseat knows that having the right amount of space, features, and comfort is vital in turning a stressful trip into an energizing one. 


Against these criteria, the 2022 Kia Carnival is made to deliver. This innovative 3-row minivan comes with plenty of features that are designed to make family drives easy. Let’s take a look at the three biggest reasons why this is such an awesome family-friendly Kia car! 


Awesome Seating and Infotainment = Happy Passengers


You’ll be able to enjoy the 2022 Kia Carnival’s innovative comfort from the moment you first open the door. The vehicle features a Slide-Flex seating system that splits the third row into three distinct seats, with the center one able to both fold into a terminal and slide forward. This gives drivers countless options for seating arrangements while ensuring that passengers are comfortable regardless of where they are sitting. 


These seats also feature special latch anchors designed for stress-free car seat installations; your days of fussing around with awkward car seat holders are over. 


The back seats also feature dual-screen displays that allow drivers to stream media off of their smart devices; you’ll never have to worry about running out of entertainment during long drives. Additionally, these screens allow for a two-way intercom system that allows the front row to communicate clearly with the back rows; your days of turning around and shouting are over. 

Advanced Safety Features Means Peace of Mind for Drivers


Ultimately, the single most important feature of a family car is its ability to keep passengers safe. Every other gadget and feature is secondary to ensuring that your car is protecting the thing in your life that matters the most: the passengers sharing a drive with you. 


While it might have a whimsical name, the Kia Carnival is no joke when safety is concerned. A whole suite of active-safety features come standard at all trims, which includes an automated emergency braking system that can detect pedestrians, lane-departure warnings that come with lane-keeping assist, and an adaptive cruise control system. 


All of these systems work in tandem to minimize accidents by providing unparalleled awareness of road conditions. In the event of a collision, the Carnival’s chassis is carefully designed to disperse force safely around the passengers, significantly reducing their risk of injuries. 


When the family is concerned, there’s no substitute for a safe car, and the Carnival is designed with that in mind. 


Competitive Prices, Long-Lasting Value


With all of these awesome features, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the 2022 Kia Carnival comes with a pretty hefty price tag. Its long list of standard features and high-quality engineering could easily justify a high cost, but the Kia Carnival is actually one of the most affordably priced family cars on the market! 


With a list price of $33,275, the Carnival is actually less expensive than its competition, costing thousands of dollars less than the base versions of the 2021 Toyota Sienna or Chrysler Pacifica. When you consider that the Carnival comes with significantly more features than either, the price difference becomes even more appealing. 


A lower price tag doesn’t tell the full story, either. New Kia cars hold onto their value exceptionally well, boasting long lifespans and generous warranties. This means that you won’t need to worry about replacing it for quite a while—in fact, the toddler that’s sleeping in your backseat could be reasonably taking your Carnival with them to college!
