All-new 2022 Kia Carnival multi-purpose vehicle transcends
The all-new 2022 Kia Carnival Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV) replaces the outgoing Sedona to become a multifaceted and unexpected companion.

It pushes the boundaries on expected fronts in much the same way the Kia K5 did to redefine what a midsize sedan should be.
