How many people can ride in the 2022 Kia Carnival?
Don’t call the new Kia Carnival a minivan. It is so much more than that. The automaker has designated the new flexible, family-friendly platform a Multi-Purpose Vehicle because it occupies an otherwise unoccupied space between the outdated minivan class and crossover SUV class. Kia has not only used some design inspiration from the Telluride for the unique silhouette cast by the Carnival, but it also provided the new vehicle with many of the same capabilities. One of the most common questions Team Gunther Kia product experts get about the new platform is, ‘How many people can ride in the 2022 Kia Carnival?’ Let’s take a closer look at a few things you might want to know.

2022 Carnival Seating Capacity
Like its Kia Sedona ancestor, the 2022 Kia Carnival offers three rows of seating that can hold seven or eight passengers. Kia built the 2022 Carnival with a total of 168.2 cubic-feet of gross interior passenger space – a top mark in its class. The LX, EX and SX trim grades offer eight-passenger seating configurations and the top-of-the-line SX Prestige model is only available with spots for seven people. Sliding the second row of seats forward or back plays a big role in the overall flexibility of the 2022 Carnival and it is available in all trim grades coming to the Team Gunther Kia showroom.
How does Kia VIP lounge seating work?
Because the 2022 Kia Carnival is essentially carving out its own space in the automotive industry, designers have found a way to offer owners of the SX Prestige version something special. The VIP Lounge Seating will be both heated and cooled, offer power adjustments, wing-out headrests and extendable footstools that remind us of our favorite recliner. This highly adjustable seating system cannot be removed or folded away – leaving the SX Prestige with a maximum cargo volume of 86.9 cubic-feet.
More Family-Friendly Features
Kia engineers have gone another step or two further to provide more features that will make the 2022 Carnival more family-friendly. These features include:
• Rear Passenger View Camera
• Passenger Talk
• Passenger Voice Recognition
• Dual Rear Screen Entertainment System
