The addition of the all-new Kia Carnival multi-purpose vehicle to the new inventory available at Concord Kia has given customers another option for a high-capacity, highly capable vehicle platform that was built for the 21st-century consumer. A comparison between the 2022 Kia Carnival vs. 2021 Kia Sedona will provide Concord Kia customers with a very clear picture of what lies in store for them, regardless of which platform they choose to take home. First and foremost, the 2022 Carnival uses an exterior design language that is congruent with the automaker’s existing crossover SUV lineup. Additionally, the 2022 Kia Carnival is more powerful and offers more maximum interior cargo volume. Early independent reviews of the 2022 Carnival have been overwhelmingly positive with praise of the vehicle’s powerful standard engine, long list of standard technology and, of course, its striking style.

An all-new vehicle platform all but demands a new powertrain. The 2022 Kia Carnival will employ a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine that will be attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Owners can expect the 2022 Carnival to produce up to 290 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. All models available at Concord Kia will be able to record 19 miles per gallon in the city and 26 miles per gallon on the highway. Additionally, the 2022 Kia Carnival can tow 3,500 pounds.
The outgoing 2021 Kia Sedona will use a naturally aspirated 3.3-liter, V-6 engine that is also attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. However, it will produce just 276 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque.
The biggest difference between the 2022 Kia Carnival and the 2021 Kia Sedona will be the amount of space available inside of either model. Buyers choosing either vehicle will be able to hold up to 8 people. People who take the 2022 Carnival home will be able to offer more legroom to their passengers than what is found in the 2021 Sedona. When the Carnival is full of people, there will still be 40.2 cubic-feet to use behind the third row, compared to 33.9 cubic-feet in the Sedona.
Most versions of the 2022 Carnival will be able to make up to 145.1 cubic-feet available, edging out the 142 cubic-feet offered by the Sedona. The SX Prestige model of the 2022 Carnival does not have a foldable or removable second row of seats. But, it will offer more luxury seating options.
