2027 Kia Carnival Redesign Info & Release Date
The Kia Carnival is expected to see its first major redesign sometime in 2027. At least, that's according to industry publication Automotive News. At this stage, that may largely be speculation based on a typical 5-year update cycle since the Carnival minivan was introduced for 2022.
Kia hasn't released any info yet on the next Carnival generation, and we don't expect to see any for quite some time. The model is still relatively new and remains a compelling alternative to established competitors like the Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey, and Chrysler Pacifica.
Given the fact that Kia's future strategy heavily involves EVs, it remains to be seen what place the gas-powered Carnival will have in Kia's lineup. Still, popular vehicles like the Telluride SUV aren't available as hybrids or plug-in hybrids, though this could change in the future.

To put that into perspective, the Toyota Sienna is now only available as a hybrid, though the change did result in a big price increase. In contrast, the Honda Odyssey now has a higher price point than in the past since the entry-level Odyssey LX trim was discontinued for 2022.
The current Carnival is expected to see a refresh around 2024, and we don't yet know if the next-gen Carnival will arrive for the 2027 or 2028 model year. In terms of Kia Carnival pricing, the current one starts at just over $34,000, making it far cheaper than the nearly $39,000 Honda Odyssey.
Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
