When you have a big family, it’s not always easy to find a car big enough to fit everyone comfortably but remain stylish. Well, the new 2023 Kia Carnival is up to the job, purposefully designed to meet every need your family has. Instead of a minivan, Kia calls it the Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV), as it ensures you have everything you need. We look at what’s new for 2023, the features, specs and pricing.
While there are no significant changes to the base model from the 2022 version, the trim lineup does offer some new features. The SX trim comes equipped with a 31.24cm panoramic digital cluster, a 31.24cm centre display, a blind-spot view monitor and Side-Flex seating for eight passengers with a second-row multi-function seat. The SX and SX Prestige trim also offer new optional features, like media streaming capability and a rear-seat dual-screen entertainment system. With the SX Prestige trim, you also have second-row VIP lounge seats.
The new Carnival offers all the features you’d expect and is available in four to seven colours. Several safety systems include an around view monitor, Forward Collision Avoidance and Lane Follow Assist systems. The driver has access to a Passenger View monitor system on some trims, allowing you to keep an eye on your kids in the back.
The 20.32cm display console supports your navigation, infotainment system, Apple Carplay and Android Auto. Depending on the trim, you can enjoy a Bose Premium sound system and access the Kia Connect system.
The Carnival has a V6 GDI + MPI 3.5L engine, delivering up to 290 hp and 355.2 nm of torque. It uses an eight-speed automatic transmission and has an estimated fuel efficiency of 12.1L/100 KM in the city and 8.9L/100 KM on the highway. It can tow up to 1587.5kg if the car is appropriately equipped, ensuring it’s easy to take any family vacation. You have 43.18cm alloy wheels, which can be upgraded to 48.26cm alloy wheels with a machined finish on specific trims.
The starting price for the base trim is $35,795, which gives you a weekly cost of $125.24 at a 5.49% interest rate for 84 months. The starting price can go up to $49,595, resulting in $170.92 weekly payments at a 5.49% interest rate for 84 months.
