2023 Kia Carnival Review: A Luxury Condo On Wheels

 With 290 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, it is the most potent minivan currently for sale.

During our testing, we discovered that this V-6 is a fun engine that moves this

substantial van stuffed with leather with authority and emits a lovely induction tone.

This 3.5-liter engine is equipped with Kia's brand-new Smartstream fuel injection system, which combines direct injection and port fuel injectors.

 With this setup, you can take advantage of the direct injection's better fuel efficiency and

the port-injected engine's low-end torque and absence of intake valve carbon buildup.

The Kia Carnival only offers front-wheel drive, lagging behind rivals like the Toyota Sienna and Chrysler Pacifica, both of which provide all-wheel drive.
