At the 2024 Chicago Auto Show, the 2025 Kia Carnival multi-purpose vehicle showcased its evolution as a pioneer in the minivan segment, bridging the gap between SUV and family transport with finesse. Combining SUV-like aesthetics with the practicality of a van, the Carnival captivated onlookers with its spaciousness and turbo-hybrid powertrain option.

Embracing the “Opposites United” design philosophy, the Carnival boasts a modern and bold appearance reminiscent of an SUV. Its grand grille and intricate headlamp details exude confidence, while the refined rear design adds a touch of sophistication. Alloy wheel options, ranging from 17 to 19 inches, showcase geometric angles, accentuating the Carnival’s dynamic profile. The Carnival Dark Edition further elevates its allure with darkened exterior elements.

Ambient lighting, minimalist controls, and a panoramic dual-display infotainment system create an ultramodern ambiance. Seven USB-C ports, two power outlets, and two 115V inverters ensure all passengers stay connected and powered up throughout the journey.

Voice recognition technology distinguishes between occupants, while the VIP Lounge Seat package offers second-row passengers a luxurious experience with relaxation mode activation via voice command.

Maintaining its reputation for versatility, the Carnival offers flexible seating configurations for seven or eight passengers, with best-in-class cargo space behind the first row. Advanced safety features, including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and Highway Driving Assist 2, further enhance the Carnival’s appeal as a family-friendly vehicle.

In the realm of connectivity, the Carnival sets new standards with Kia’s next-generation Connected Car Navigation Cockpit and Connected Car Rear Cockpit systems. Over-the-air updates and Digital Key 2.0 functionality ensure the Carnival remains at the forefront of in-car technology.

Performance options abound, with the standard 3.5-liter V6 engine delivering 287 horsepower and a newly available hybrid variant boasting a combined output of 242 horsepower. Aerodynamic enhancements and hybrid-specific features enhance performance and fuel efficiency, promising a comfortable and efficient ride.

With its blend of style, comfort, and innovation, the 2025 Kia Carnival redefines the minivan segment, setting a new benchmark for family vehicles in the digital age.
