Performance & Capability


A powerful engine needs to be up to the task to power this versatile minivan/SUV combination, and the 3.5L V6 GDI does it with ease. You’ll be able to get up to 290 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque, sizable power for this large vehicle.


Even though the Carnival is, indeed, a large vehicle, it still manages to stay efficient and provide large breaks in between needing to stop by the local gas station. Fuel efficiency is rated at 12 / 8.9 L/100 km for the city and highway, respectively, allowing you to focus on family time rather than searching for the next fuel stop.

Front & Rear Suspensions

A vehicle this large may invite assumptions of a bumpy ride, but that’s not the case with the high-quality of front and rear suspensions that the Carnival maintains. An Independent, MacPherson strut front suspension and Multi-link rear suspension combine for a smooth and effortless ride.

Engine 3.5L V6 GDI
Horsepower 290
Torque (lb-ft) 262

Fuel Efficiency (city/highway) (L/100 km)12 / 8.9


12.3-inch Navigation Display

Available is a 12.-3-inch navigation display, providing a crisp and clear HD screen, with simple instrumentation and button navigation for you to seamlessly interact with the system. Make phone calls, play your favourite music, navigate to your destination and more, all from your handy display screen.

Passenger View Monitor

A spacious and large cabin means there’s a lot to keep an eye on inside the Carnival, especially if you have little ones in the back. The Passenger View Monitor lets you simply check on the 2nd- and 3rd-row seats through the camera display, conveniently appearing on your display screen.

Smart Key (with Push-Button Start)

When you have a family in tow, there’s little time to fuss around. Get in and go thanks to the available smart key with push-button start. Start or stop your next adventure thanks to this handy feature.


Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist

The Carnival is always looking out for you and your passengers aboard, with the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist the perfect example of this mentality. This system (complete with a Junction Turning Function) will apply the brakes automatically if it senses a potential collision is imminent.

Blind Spot Monitor

Whether driving a big or small vehicle, there are always still blind spots that can make driving tricky. Our Kia solution to this problem is through the available Blind Spot Monitor, which will display a live video feed of your blind spot in the instrument cluster when your turn signal is on, allowing you to make an informed lane change when safe.

Around View Monitor

Backing up or parallel parking has never been easier than with this handy Around View Monitor. Your interior display screen will showcase a virtual 360-degree view around your vehicle, keeping you apprised of every obstacle, so you can avoid them and make a tight parking job look easy.
