Time to get the party started, with a year-long test of this 2022 Kia Carnival.
Our Carnival’s SX Prestige trim has just about every available convenience feature to help keep complaints from occupants of all ages to a minimum.
Including 2nd row captain’s chairs with lots of adjustment; just know you have to move them inboard before you can get your max relax on.
“While the second row passengers get to chillax in the back of this Carnival, I’m not necessarily roughing it up here in the driver’s seat. In addition to the blind spot monitoring system, the digital gauge cluster offers a blind spot view on either side whenever you hit the turn signal. That may seem excessive, but it’s one of those features you don’t know you want until you have it.”
The 290–horsepower V6 has powered us to 22.9 miles-per-gallon through the 2,000-miles of our first month.
