This New Kia Seats 11 People So, Go Ahead And Bring The Entire Family For A Ride

Big family? Heck, now days if you have more than 2 kids it’s likely you are needing a bigger car such as an SUV or Van.

Kia

Well, Kia not only has you covered, but they are giving you enough room to bring Grandma, Grandpa and weird Uncle Kyle along too.

Kia

Kia has a new ride that seats 11.

Yes, I said ELEVEN and it’s basically a compact bus if you ask me.

Kia

Okay, in reality, it’s actually considered a Mini Van but it does have 11 seats among 4 rows (most SUV’s and mini vans only have 3 rows).

Kia

Obviously, with the 4th row you literally have no cargo space but hey, at least you soccer moms can haul around the entire soccer team, right?

Kia

It is called the Kia Carnival and is a mini van with an SUV-inspired design meaning it looks more like an SUV than a van.

Kia

The doors slide open much like you’d see in a VAN and the seats move forward and sideways to allow passengers to enter the third and fourth rows.

Kia

The fourth row seems to be quite small so good for children or small adults but you can also entirely lay it flat inside of the car for additional cargo.

Kia

Aside from being able to haul around a small carnival (see what I did there?) it has several fancy features that makes this pretty hard to pass up.

The Kia Carnival is a 2022 model and the base model starts at $32,100 (8-passenger) and goes up as you get more seats, features, etc.

Kia

So, what do you think? Is this something you’d be interested in?

I certainly think it’s cool especially if you have a large family.

As cool as this vehicle is, I'd like to bring attention to the complete KIA line. Most KIA owners know this fact but did y'all know KIA truly appreciates their customers? I've owned a KIA since 2005. In 2016 I came across a customer loyalty contest they were running. I entered my essay about my love for my Optima. I won! But I was far from the only winner. KIA flew in winners and their guests from all around the world to Seoul, Korea for a 5 day/4 night all expenses paid trip. We were treated like royalty! That wasn't the only year they did that either. It was amazing! I can't say it enough...I love KIA!

Definitely need an 11 seater. We have 7 kids and our last road trip to Milwaukee was horrible in our 9-seater suburban. I've contacted the head quarters in Irvine CA to see if they'd ship me a back seat so i could buy an 8 seater and have it installed.

With no good options for big Families. The Grand Carnival is the BEST ANSWER to the NV, Transit, 12 seater VAN, etc.

We need to start signing petitions to get these in the USA ASAP!

I volunteer KIA to start the petition List on all media platforms.

...Go-

@rachel, Yes, there's always the used market (which you'd have to go if you want a Grand Caravan), but this article is written for new car buyers (it's new after all), who need 11 seats
