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. sometime in 2021.
