Kia Carnival 2025: A Stylish and Spacious Minivan with SUV Looks – And for the 2025 model year, the Kia Carnival is getting even better. It is already one of the most beautiful minivans on the market. South Korean Kia has released an updated Carnival. It has new wheels, a new Gravity price level with all-black paint, and a new front and back design. Even though we have yet to determine if the U.S. version of the 2025 Carnival will have any changes to the interior or the engine, it should look the same.
Design: Exterior and Interior
The new grille texture, bigger headlights with LED accent strips, and taillights that go across the width of the car give the outside of the 2025 Carnival a more authoritarian and modern look. Also, the new wheels look nice, especially the ones with the geometric design that are silver and black. With its black details on the grille, window surrounds, roof rails, and wheels, the Carnival looks more powerful when equipped with the Gravity trim level.
Even though it hasn’t been shown yet, the 2025 Carnival cabin will be significant, fancy, and well-equipped, just like the current model. There is plenty of space and headroom in all three rows of seats on the Carnival, which can fit up to eight people comfortably. For more room, the third-row seats can be folded into the floor, and the seats in the second row can slide, recline, and fold. Power sliding doors, a hands-free opening, an entertainment system for the back seats, wireless charging, multiple USB ports, and a 12.3-inch tablet with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are just a few of the convenient features that the Carnival has to offer families.
The 2025 Carnival will likely keep the same 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 290 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. In other words, the motor will not change. An eight-speed automatic transmission sends power only to the front wheels when the engine is started.
Regarding speed and moving, the Carnival has enough power to go quickly and smoothly. Furthermore, it gets 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, which are good gas mileage numbers for its class.
Release Date and Price
The 2025 Carnival will come out either late this year or early next year, but Kia hasn’t said when it will be available in the U.S. Currently, the base LX trim level costs $32,100, and the top-of-the-line SX Prestige trim level costs $46,100. The prices should stay the same as that of the current model.
