One of the auto brands that has done so well when it comes to the minivan segment in the US market is Kia. Starting from the Sedona years ago and now, replacing this age-long family hauler with an even more stylish family-friendly hauler for the 2022 model year. Indeed, Kia has mastered the art of delivering the most desirable minivans.
If you’re hoping to lease a minivan with an SUV-like nature, leasing the 2022 Kia Carnival LX is the perfect deal. And while it’s not the first or only minivan with SUV-like attributes, where other SUV-like minivans fail, the Carnival succeeds easily.
The all-new Kia Carnival, which replaces the aging Sedona, is a handsome family hauler with boxy SUV-like styling, a comfortable and well-equipped cabin, and a refined powertrain that will delight any shopper looking to lease a new minivan. This “multi-purpose vehicle” is much versatile. It affords a well-balanced chassis to make it a desirable option in the minivan segment.
Under the hood of the all-new Carnival LX is a 3.5-liter V6 that churns out 290-horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. This V6 engine is hooked with an eight-speed automatic transmission. And like most minivans, the 2022 Carnival LX comes exclusively with a front-wheel-drive, as all-wheel-drive is not on the menu, like few of its rivals.
Although the Carnival is a big vehicle, it still feels largely composed and balanced around sharp turns. Its engine is responsive and coughs out enough power to push this van on the highway. Its smooth shifting transmission does a fine job as well. Riding this family hauler, you’ll be impressed by its firm handling and smooth ride, thanks to its suspension that easily absorbs dips and bumps in the road.
And though few vehicles in its class have better fuel economy numbers than the 2022 Carnival LX, its EPA-rated fuel numbers of 19 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg combined are good numbers for a minivan. These numbers are also slightly better than the outgoing 2021 Sedona’s numbers.
Everything inside the all-new 2022 Carnival LX looks and feels nice. This Carnival base model affords a more contemporary dashboard featuring a large center console and a swath of upscale materials in its cabin. This family-friendly minivan affords loads of standard convenience features, including an 8-inch touch screen, cloth upholstery, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, sliding and removable second-row seats, hands-free power-sliding rear doors, rear-seat reminder, remote start, and so much more.
It seats up to seven, with the first two rows providing ample space, comfort, and support. The third room is also a tad spacious and comfortable. Behind its third-rows, the 2022 Carnival LX affords so much cargo space more than what you can get from most minivans.
The all-new 2022 Carnival LX may be new to the minivan segment, but it checks all the right boxes in every shopper’s book to lease this great family hauler at insane lease rates. Contact VIP Auto, 1204 Hylan Blvd, Staten Island, NY 10305 https://viplease.com/.
