The greatest show on earth isn’t under a tent; it’s inside the Kia Carnival. Peel back the curtain and experience an array of comfortable additions engineered to bring out the next-level comfort for every passenger. For instance, the second-row Slide-Flex seating allows a customizable interior layout to make way for passengers and cargo without sacrificing space. Plus, the second-row one-touch relaxation mode offers a full recline, raised power footrests, and adjustable headrests.
As you traverse the Missouri landscape, the Kia Carnival keeps every passenger happy with the available Dual-Screen Rear-Seat Entertainment with Device Mirroring. Ideal for long trips, these smart displays allow for connectivity—and for some much-needed quiet time, too.
Parents will particularly enjoy the optional Passenger View with Night Vision feature. This ensures you have not only a clear view of your passengers at any given time, but you also can easily communicate without disrupting the peace using Driver and Passenger Talk.
Safety is paramount no matter where you are, and the Kia Carnival doesn't disappoint. Every passenger is protected by an array of advanced airbags to further ensure peace of mind throughout your travels. Plus, with the Kia Drive Wise safety suite, numerous intelligent safety features bring out the best of modern-day technology. These include:
One particularly helpful feature is Highway Driving Assist, which helps you stay centered in your lane and helps you maintain a safe following distance in any sort of traffic. Meanwhile, the available four-camera Surround View Monitor provides a 360-degree view of your surroundings, making parking and maneuvering in tight spaces a breeze.
The Kia Carnival is anything but one dimensional. Rather, it offers a range of trim levels to suit your specific wants and needs. Drivers can choose from five different Kia Carnival trim models, starting with the base LX, which offers a 3.5L V6 engine, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, and Smart Key access with Remote Start.
Meanwhile, the EX includes all the amenities found in the LX trim, adding 19-inch alloy wheels, a 12.3-inch touchscreen display with built-in navigation, and the aforementioned Passenger View and Talk feature for those in the rear seats.
The highest-end Kia Carnival trim level is the SX Prestige, which boasts LED taillights, a Bose® premium sound system, a heated steering wheel, and plenty more. Between these options, you’re certain to find the vehicle that fits all you need in the bi-state area.
