The new 2022 Kia Carnival Multi-Purpose Vehicle is making its marketing campaign debut this week in a new spot dubbed "What Else Ya Got." Kia says it illustrates how the Carnival MPV offers "active consumers a host of benefits to support their busy lives and stakes Carnival as a new offering in the unoccupied space between SUV and family hauler."

Kia debuted the three-row Carnival back in March and you can read more details in our previous post.

The newly released ad highlights the Carnivalís features from the second-row VIP lounge-style seating to the 3,500-lb. towing capacity and blind spot monitoring system.

"The Carnival MPV defines a new vehicle segment Ė the multi-purpose vehicle: versatile, capable and comfortable, and provides owners what they need, when they need it," said Russell Wager, vice president, marketing, Kia Motors America. "From daily commuting and long-haul road trips to camping adventures, family vacations and moving duty, the Carnival MPV easily transforms from a stylish and sophisticated adventurer to a cavernous cargo hauler. And everything in between."

The Carnival MPV will be the first vehicle sold in the U.S. with Kiaís new logo. It goes on sale in the Q2 2021 starting from $32,100.

We had a chance to take a close look at this vehicle over the weekend. The SX Prestige Is a great looking vehicle from the outside and the interior is well appointed. We were seriously considering buying one and began comparing the the good points with the negative points. To begin with, we love the factory warranty of 5 year 60,000 basic warranty with a 10 year/100,000 drive train warranty. This is the best available. Let me put the rest of our points in simple terms. We loved everything about the vehicle from the front seats forward. The rear half left a lot to be desired. Moving the second row seats front to back and side to side is done manually and is a challenge . The release levers are difficult to release and the slide front to back requires a hefty push/pull. I am over 6 feet tall and to put the chairs in lounge mode would require stowing the third row seats to get the lounge chairs back far enough to lift up the foot rest and extend it. And, how often would one use them in lounge mode? Access is a real challenge as there is not enough room for the easy access to the third row whether by sliding the seats side to side or trying to enter between the two second row seats. While there is room for adults in the third row , access is not practicable. That gets us to the third row seats. While they are fairly comfortable and have sufficient leg room, stowing them is a different story. They are stowed manually. Again, stowing is not an easy process and in a $48,000 vehicle, stowing should be at the push of a switch. The rear half turned us away. When we went to look, we had every intention to purchase the vehicle if we could negotiate a fair deal. The color was what we were looking for and wanted. We were really disappointed.
