The Kia Carnival MPV arrived with a bold design that perfectly blended the utility of an SUV with the practicality of a minivan. The multi-purpose vehicle is great for families, and AutoGuide agrees. The publication recently named the Kia Carnival the 2022 Family Vehicle of the Year.
“The Kia Carnival MPV is truly a multi-purpose vehicle and breaks the mold of what many perceive a vehicle like this should be,” said Steven Center, COO and EVP, Kia America. “We’re proud to receive AutoGuide’s family vehicle award, celebrating the Carnival MPV’s premium design and abundant safety technology. This award further validates the Carnival MPV’s wide-reaching appeal, which resulted in our popular MPV capturing 9.3 percent market share in its segment in 2021.”
To determine the eight winners in their categories, a panel of judges from AutoGuide tested hundreds of vehicles. AutoGuide announced 40 finalists after scoring the cars, trucks, and utility vehicles on things like value, space, safety, user-friendliness, and more. The AutoGuide judges especially enjoyed factors of the Carnival that made it great for families: its exterior styling, the comfortable and upscale middle-row seats, and long list of safety equipment.
