New Kia Carnival for Sale in Stockton, CA

2023 Kia Carnival: The looks of an SUV, the space of a minivan

Make no mistake. The 2023 Kia Carnival at Kia of Stockton is a minivan even though it doesn't look like one. The rear doors slide like a minivan for easy access. The extra interior room for people and cargo and the low floor are unmistakable hallmarks of a minivan. The seating comfort for the whole family (instead of stiff SUV seats) also makes the Kia Carnival a minivan. Here's why minivans are suddenly hot and why you should consider this one.

Performance in the new Kia Carnival

Regardless of which trim you choose in the new Kia Carnival for 2023, families in Modesto and Manteca, CA will get Kia's 3.5-liter V6 engine. They'll also get that engine's very capable 290 horsepower and an eight-speed automatic. The Carnival comes with standard front-wheel drive so there's no pretense about trying to be an off-road SUV. The Kia Carnival does have the ability to tow something like a boat that weighs up to 3,500 pounds.

Fuel economy in the Kia Carnival

With a family vehicle this spacious, you might expect highway mpg ratings to be in the low 20s. Fortunately, the 2023 Kia Carnival will exceed those expectations. The EPA estimates 19 mpg in the city and an efficient 26 mpg on the highway. The editors at Car & Driver tested the 2023 Kia Carnival and did a little better, coming in at 28 mpg on the highway. Kia understands that families need transportation that can fit within a family budget.

The interior of the new Kia Carnival

The Kia Carnival's inside space pays tribute to the importance of families with its upscale comfort and stylish, contemporary design. In recognition of the fact that family life can be delightfully messy at times, the Kia Carnival is easy to clean in the event of unexpected spills. At the higher end, the SX Prestige trim seats your family in genuine leather upholstery. In the same trim, you can even get reclining second-row seats with pop-up footrests.

Infotainment in the 2023 Kia Carnival

An 8-inch touchscreen is standard and so is a six-speaker stereo, seven USB ports and the convenience of Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Optional enhancements include a 12.3-inch touchscreen, wireless device charging to eliminate skirmishes, satellite radio and the kind of rear-seat entertainment system the kids will love on longer road trips. Upgrade to eight-speaker audio or a premium Bose system with 12 speakers.

Cargo space in the Kia Carnival

True to the storage strengths you'd expect in a minivan, the 2023 Kia Carnival gives Elk Grove and Roseville, CA customers the family-sized space they need. You'll find 40.2 cubic feet behind the third-row seats. Fold that back row down and you've got 86.9 cubic feet. Fold down both second and third rows and you're up to 145 cubic inches. Second and third-row seats can even be removed for massive inner space. Don't try that in an SUV.

Safety technology in the latest Kia Carnival

The list of standard safety features in the 2023 Kia Carnival is long enough to reassure even the most over-protective parent. A rear-view camera makes backing up a lot easier and safer. A forward emergency braking system can stop forcefully when needed to avoid a collision in front of you. We could go on but there simply isn't room. But there's plenty of room in the 2023 Kia Carnival. Test drive one soon at Kia of Stockton in Stockton, CA.
