Mega Kia Brossard
Known as the "Sedona", the Kia Carnival has been in production since 1998. It has established itself as one of the leaders in the minivan market. Indeed, spacious and comfortable, the Kia Carnival appeals to many families, but also to those who need space in their daily lives. For 2023 and its fourth generation, the Kia Carnival is getting a facelift to offer a more expressive look. Here's a closer look at its features and price.
In terms of design, the 2023 Kia Carnival adopts some of the features of the new Seltos and Sorento. It maintains an elongated line similar to that of the minivans, but with more generous ground clearance. The shapes are more pronounced on the bumper and the hood, and the metal trim on the front adds body. As for the roof bars, which are raised, they accentuate its utilitarian side. A few specific elements are worth noting, including the chrome rear side pillars, the camouflaged rear window wiper, the two-tone mirror caps, and the LED "chicane" signature located under the headlights. The new KIA logo makes its first appearance in North America.
While precise specifications have not yet been revealed for Quebec, it is possible that the new 2023 Kia Carnival will switch to a 3.8L V6 with 291 horsepower, or even a hybrid engine. Certainly, the choice of a more powerful and "greener" engine would allow this GUV or Grand Utility Vehicle to live up to the new image that KIA's Canadian subsidiary plans to project. However, one thing is certain: the 2023 Kia Carnival will be equipped with one or more powertrains.
The dashboard is minimalist to make room for a large, touch-sensitive central screen that blends into the available 12.3-inch digital equipment. You can opt for a Martian Brown or Black leather trim with optional 3D watercolor trim. And don't forget the luxury stitching. The middle seat is sliding for the eight-passenger configuration. In fact, the center backrest can be folded down to provide a table and each seat can be removed separately. For the seven-passenger configuration, the second row of seats features heated/ventilated VIP seats with adjustable footrests and headrests. When it comes to technology, there's no shortage of optional features. In fact, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay wirelessly, Bluetooth connectivity for multiple devices, a wireless phone charger, UVO Intelligence and a Bose audio system are available. When it comes to safety, KIA doesn't skimp and offers numerous features such as lane keeping and tracking assist, driver attention loss warning, smart cruise control, and forward collision avoidance assist. For the 2023 model range, the Kia Carnival is priced from $43,190 to $66,680.
