Overview of Kia Carnival
Having been around since the year 1998, the Kia Carnival, also known as the Kia Sedona, has seen a slow and steady rise to the pinnacle of the “minivan heaven.”
While its first generation devoted itself to being raw, powerful and durable, the second generation Carnival has seen a lot of improved inputs and upgrades.
In fact the 2006 version (2nd generation) did not take a lot of time before becoming an awarded figure in the minivan industry. In 2007, it won a number of awards including the MotorWeek Best Minivan and the Driver’s Choice Award in 2007.
At the core of this Kia minivan is a 2.6 V6 engine that is capable of providing raw power in the city and out. And while its power underlines its commitment to being one of the most durable vans around, the Kia Carnival is also an eye candy inside and out. The stylish exterior perfectly matches the sleek interior.
What makes the Carnival a minivan to reckon with is its undeniable reliability. The Carnival almost always does a perfect job in every situation; not matter the weather, not matter the road condition. In fact this minivan rarely breaks down, with low repair and maintenance costs.
That, plus a mileage close to 10 km/L, which makes it a less of a gas hog for a big vehicle, should make the Carnival one of the cheapest minivans around.
Safe, reliable and never costly, that’s what makes a Carnival ride one good experience to look forward to.
