Replacing the aging Sedona in the 2022 Kia lineup is the all-new Carnival. This all-new minivan is already stirring up the minivan segment as it makes its way to most dealers’ showrooms in the US. This Kia’s new minivan sports an SUV-like boxy styling, and at the same time, retains the typical minivan strengths—cavernous passenger and cargo space, family-friendly amenities, and relaxing ride quality.
If you’re looking for an alternative to so-so three-row SUVs, leasing the 2022 Kia Carnival EXis the deal. This people mover is an enticing option for large families with an eye for aesthetics and practicality. While the 2022 Carnival offers four trim levels, the EX trim represents a more well-rounded package in the lineup. The Carnival EX comes standard with a plethora of convenience features, including a hands-free power liftgate, 12.3-inch touch screen, navigation, wireless device charging, in-cabin intercom, tri-zone automatic climate control, second-row seats complete with heating, ventilation, and extendable leg rests, and a voice-control system that rear-seat passengers can use to provide commands to the infotainment system.
All 2022 Carnival models, including the Carnival EX, are powered by a 3.5-liter V6 that churns out 290-horsepower. This V6 engine pairs with a responsive eight-speed automatic transmission. This minivan is offered only as a front-wheel-drive as all-wheel drive is not part of Kia’s plan for the 2022 Carnival.
And like most minivans, the powertrain of the new Carnival EX provides quick and eager acceleration to take on the city or highway. Regardless of its bulky nature, this minivan feels firm and composed around turns. Its suspension does an excellent job of providing a smooth ride even over imperfect roads. Towing up to 3,500 pounds, the 2022 Carnival EX never feels overwhelmed when you throw in many goods or as many people in it.
2022 Kia Carnival EX returns an EPA estimated 19 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg combined, which is decent in the minivan class.
Passenger and cargo space and comfortable seats are one of the highlights of minivans, and the all-new Carnival EX delivers incredibly well in these areas. This Carnival EX minivan seats eight people. The first two rows of seats afford incredible space, comfort, and loads of support. Its third-row sports ample legroom space and an optional rear-seat entertainment system. Expansive cargo hold is the game in this all-new Carnival. Even behind its rear seats, it gets more cargo space than most of its rivals. If that’s not enough, you can either fold down or remove the second-row seats and fold down the third-row seats.
Kia offers a well-built and modern interior with quality materials and premium upgrades in the 2022 Carnival EX.
The 2022 Carnival EX is a solid choice for shoppers looking for an alternative to the conventional three-row SUV. For the lowest possible lease rates on this minivan, call VIP Auto, 1204 Hylan Blvd, Staten Island, NY 10305 https://viplease.com/.
