So long Sedona: Kia ditches minivan name, switching to Kia Carnival 'multi-purpose vehicle'

3 mins read

Say goodbye to the Kia Sedona minivan and hello to the Kia Carnival … “multi-purpose vehicle.”

That’s what Kia is calling its redesigned … minivan.

The change signals further trouble for vehicles historically called minivans, which have been losing sales to SUVs in recent years.

But Kia is on a roll with family buyers, having scored big with its recent rollout of the Telluride three-row SUV. So maybe it’s on to something.

The 2022 Kia Carnival comes with a lot of zip in the form of a 3.5-liter, 6-cylinder engine delivering 290 horsepower, the only powertrain option.
