2022 Kia Sedona: Redesign Info & Release Date

Redesign Info

The Kia Sedona is going through a significant redesign for the 2022 model year and will also be getting a new name. To keep consistent with overseas markets, the Kia Sedona will arrive as the 2022 Kia Carnival.

The minivan gains Kia's most recent styling with the brand's signature tiger-nose grille and sharp headlights up front. Moving around back reveals an SUV-like look with the roofline dropping off onto a flat rear liftgate with aggressive body lines.

The Carnival brings a much-needed facelift as it gets a larger, more comfortable interior design with touches of modernity and luxury. The focal point inside is the dash with a 12.3-inch digital driver instrument cluster incorporated with the 12.3-inch infotainment screen beneath a single piece of glass. Below the infotainment cluster, the climate controls have gone almost completely touch-sensitive with slim air vents running the width of the interior.

Under the hood, the Carnival gets an updated 3.5-liter V6 with 290 horsepower

The Carnival will go on sale in the Korean market in late 2020 so we expect it to arrive in the U.S. some time in 2021.

The all-new Carnival will compete with the Chrysler Pacifica, Honda Odyssey, and Toyota Sienna.
