Trim differences on the 2022 Kia Carnival
2022 Kia Carnival LX
The base-level LX has all the basics for your family at an affordable entry price, such as Android Auto™, Apple CarPlay®, USB charging outlets, and data ports, Smart Key w/ Remote Start, and many safety features.
You can also order the LX with a Seat Package that adds SynTex upholstery on the seats, 10-way power-adjustable movements for the driver’s seat plus lumbar support and heating function, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
2022 Kia Carnival EX
The EX trim increases wheel size from 17 inches to 19 inches, touch-screen size from 8 inches to 12.3 inches, and the number of speakers in the audio system from six to eight. With that enhanced audio system, the EX provides more infotainment functions, like a navigation system and satellite radio. Tri-Zone Automatic Temperature Control is also added to keep passengers comfortable in all three rows.
2022 Kia Carnival SX
The SX trim adds an array of glossy enhancements to the MPV, like chrome accents across the exterior, sound-absorbing windows, and power-folding mirrors. The Carnival SX is more functional for outdoorsy lifestyles in Florida with its fog lights, roof rails, and ventilated front seats.
Tech upgrades include a rear-seat entertainment system, additional USB charging ports in the second row, wireless phone charging, and 115-volt power inverters.
2022 Kia Carnival SX Prestige
The SX Prestige offers peak luxury for Carnival drivers, adding the finest enhancements to the MPV. As the driver, you’ll appreciate the massive 12.3-inch Supervision Meter Cluster LCD display, Auto-Dimming Rearview Mirror, heated steering wheel, and full LED headlights and tail lights. The cabin is refined with genuine leather seats, LED interior lighting, dual tilting sunroofs, and a 12-speaker Bose® premium audio system.
2022 Kia Carnival performance
Every version of the 2022 Carnival is equipped with a large 3.5-liter V6 engine with multi-port and direct injection functions. With its eight-speed automatic transmission, the Carnival has the strength to muster 29 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. That’s comparable to many SUVs on the market — including in Kia’s own lineup — and enough vigor to accelerate onto the highway with a full crew of passengers.
The V6 engine is efficient, too, as it conserves enough fuel to average 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on highways. With its huge 19-gallon fuel tank filled to capacity, you can drive the Carnival 400 miles in combined city/highway traffic.  That efficiency is also due in part to the Carnival’s lightweight unibody construction and Eco-Drive Mode.
If you need to bring a recreational bike or ATV with you on your excursions or a pair of water scooters to ride on the ocean, the Carnival can do that. Its V6 engine allows it to tow up to 3,500 pounds.
2022 Kia Carnival interior
If you want a comfortable, lavish family vehicle for road trips and carpools in Florida, you’ll appreciate the Carnival’s best-in-class total passenger space. It seats eight people comfortably, giving everyone room to stretch out.
Its multipurpose cabin design lets you fold the seats down to access a lot of cargo space — the most in its class. And an available Smart Power Tailgate makes rear cargo access much easier.
To treat your passengers to the peak of luxury, opt for the SX Prestige trim that replaces the second-row bench seats with VIP Lounge Seats. They have wing-out headrests and leg extensions so they can kick back as if they were in a recliner in their living room.
2022 Kia Carnival safety tech
The Carnival MPV provides you with a suite of Collision Avoidance Technologies to help you stay more alert and in control behind the wheel when driving around Florida. Standard features include Forward Collision Avoidance-Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Driver Attention Warning with Leading Vehicle Departure Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Following Assist, High Beam Assist, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, and Parking Distance Warning. That’s just a handful of the many driving assistance tools you can have on the Carnival.
Bring your family to Kia of Wesley Chapel to try out the 2022 Carnival MPV and see if this versatile vehicle is the transportation you need for your busy lifestyle in Wesley Chapel, Florida.
