Kia debuted the 2022 edition of its iconic MPV, the Carnival, in North America in February. In the United States, the Kia Carnival replaces the Kia Sedona. The 2022 Kia Carnival is the first Kia product in the United States to feature the new Kia logo, and the company is doing all it can to make the Carnival a big hit by providing a lot of space, a lot of features, good performance, and a good overall package.
The Australasian New Car Assessment Programme, or ANCAP, has given the fourth-generation Carnival a 5-star safety rating.
Adult occupant protection received a 90 percent rating, while child occupant protection received an 88 percent rating, vulnerable road user protection received a 68 percent rating, and safety assists received an 82 percent rating. A full-speeding Carnival was made to ram into a wall during the full-width test. The MPV’s front bumper and engine bay absorbed much of the impact’s force, keeping the occupants safe.
The airbags that were deployed at the time of the crash also helped the dummy passengers. As a fast-approaching vehicle collided with a stopped Carnival, the fourth-generation vehicle’s robust parts held the passengers safe.
The Carnival is powered by a 3.5L V6 petrol engine that produces 290BHP and 355Nm of peak torque. The front wheels are driven by an 8-speed automatic transmission.
It comes with 12 ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) features that aid the driver. Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA), Intelligent Speed Limit Assist (ISLA), Driver Attention Alert (DAW), Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM), High Beam Assist (HBA), Smart Cruise Control (SCC) or Navigation-based SCC (NSCC), Lane Following Assist (LFA), Highway Driving Assist (HDA), Smart Cruise Control (SCC) or Navigation-based SCC (SVM). Safe Exit Assist (SEA) is also included, which prevents the sliding rear doors from opening if the system detects a vehicle approaching from behind.
