The 2025 KIA Carnival or Minivan has been redefined. The new 2025 Carnival MPV offers a turbocharged hybrid powertrain, a refreshed design, and advanced driver-assistance features.

The Carnival’s SUV-like styling cleverly disguises its minivan-ness, which makes it cool enough to pass the suburban family test. Minivans are undoubtedly the most practical family vehicles on the road today.

The 2025 model receives updates to its grille, headlamps, taillamps, wheels, and lower body panels that look inspired by the company’s new EV9 electric three-row crossover. Inside, the center console has been revised slightly and the climate control panel is now separate and mounted on the dashboard rather than part of the console itself. The infotainment system has been upgraded to Kia’s latest interface, which now includes a more robust voice assistant to perform more tasks. A new lane-centering feature is available and couples with Carnival’s adaptive cruise control system to better keep the van on track when traveling on the highway.
