Kia Carnival Reviews

The Kia Carnival MPV has what it takes to handle the various travels that you regularly go on throughout the Frankfort, Nicholasville, and Lexington, KY, areas. Car Town Kia is here to help you get a closer look at what it has to offer. We have placed links to several of its reviews. Before you dive into its various attributes, read over the following highlights to get a sense of what's waiting for you. 

Generous Interior Measurements from Front to Back

With three spacious rows at your disposal, your family and friends are going to have plenty of opportunity to really stretch out and make themselves comfortable inside the Carnival. Here are some of the numbers that help make this possible:

  • Front-Row Headroom: 40.9 inches
  • Second-Row Hip Room: 66.4 inches
  • Third-Row Legroom: 35.6 inches

These dimensions make it clear that the Kia Carnival MPV has a voluminous cabin. Whether you're on your way to a concert with some friends or heading to dinner and a movie with the family, there's a lot of wiggle room for everyone to enjoy. 

Engine Specs for the Kia Carnival


From climbing steep hills to holding your own when traveling through heavy traffic, this commanding set of wheels has your back. The engine that supplies you with the confidence you need is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that's responsible for generating a solid 290 horsepower. On top of that, there's the fact that it allows you to take in the scenery instead of keeping an eye out for gas stations in the area. The EPA-estimated 19 city/26 highway MPG gives you the edge you need to make sure you have plenty of fuel left in the tank when you get to your destination.*

A Look at Trim Levels

With its five trim levels, the Carnival makes it simple for you to customize your driving experience according to your specific lifestyle needs. For example, the EX, SX, and SX Prestige trims include the Smart Power Tailgate as a standard feature. As a result, all you have to do when you have your hands full of grocery bags is stand directly behind it with the Smart Key on your person for it to automatically open.

The Rear Seat Entertainment System that you'll find in the Carnival SX and SX Prestige trims lets younger occupants enjoy longer rides via two screens that allow them to stream their favorite media.
