Is the NEW 2022 Kia Carnival SX better than the Telluride?

Joylandi 27-May, 2021
The ALL NEW Carnival is here and Kia has brought a ton of changes for 2022 to challenge the Toyota Sienna, Chrysler Pacifica and Honda Odyssey. Replacing the Sedona in Kia's lineup the Carnival sits on a new chassis and has all new bodywork. This is the SX which is the second from the highest trim and come with a ton of features and amenities. On the inside you will find a ton of space and versatility. Under the hood is a 3.5L V6 producing 295HP \u0026 mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Is the NEW 2022 Kia Carnival SX better than the Telluride??

  • I saw it on the road today and had to do a Google search 😊😊

  • Kia outpaced those japanese brands. dang.

  • So...It's a van.

  • Joe, love your videos! I was all-in and have been waiting months to order a 2022 Telluride. Then this came out. Given the wait time of 6+ months for a Telluride I ordered a Carnival. Still going to be 2-3 months, though. For me, the Carnival looks even better than the Telluride. Wish it had AWD, but I'll survive! I've been a Toyota and Lexus man since I started driving, so to even consider a Kia is tantamount to heresy. But they're not the Kia of 10 years ago. Great to a see a brand change so in a good way. (Ordered the SX Prestige, Ceramic Silver, with the LED Interior option and LED Scuff plate options)

  • great, now you can finally say you drive around a carnival on wheels when referring to your crazy family, thanks Kia!

  • Ugly C pillar...for that i would not buy it.

  • Kia is on a roll...

  • Kia Carnival might just be the new Raiti's Ride Crew Vehicle. Lori has room for all the camera equipment and Joe has room for all his snacks and Yahoos to wash down during retakes. Slap a Raiti's Ride decal and it be fire. No joke this vehicle is fire really taking the minivan I mean multi-purpose vehicle to the next level.

  • All thats missing is AWD and I would choose this over any SUV.

  • My two questions weren't answered in this video. I wanted to see if the mid row windows roll down. I also wanted to see it with all the seats down.

  • What a man loves his snacks🤣

  • I love the look of the van my gosh I love the look

  • This shit is a god damn mini van … take it easy dude…. no matter what you do it’s a freaking mini van

  • Holy cow! It's a Minivan but doesn't really look like one. Looks more like a 3rd row SUV and I really like that. Dang, I'm gonna have to rally consider Kia next time I'm shopping for a vehicle.. Odyssey and Sienna, watch out! South Koreans have really stepped up to the plate!

  • 👍

  • I like it; but still glad I got the 2021 Sienna. It's perfection. Plus that 35 mpg I'm averaging - amazing.

  • If you crushed it into a really nice pen I would buy it. This is perfect for the moms with 1 kid that doesn’t obey the speed limits.

  • What kind of the vehicle you are talking now?

  • I want to buy new vehicle Kia carnival 2022 which one is good.

  • If the Carnival came in AWD, I probably would have bought one. KIA should think about that...

  • we have a 2018 traverse now

  • it looks great

  • He have a sweet tooth 😅😂😂😂😂

  • Can that mid row middle seat be removed ?

  • I just bought a Carnival Prestige and I love it! My only issue is that it doesn’t have built in wifi🙁

  • Why did I get the 2020 Sedona :). This thing is a beast. I do like the look of my Sedona sx though

  • Give this a sunroof im in give it a panoramic room im never getting out of it. The design is game changing. Make it awd/4wd its a #1 seller

  • barnum an bailey would be excited bout the carnival. Siegfried and roy might have some'em also 2 say bout this ride raiti.🦓🦓🦓

  • Telluride all the way 👌🏾👍🏾

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one.

  • Be prepared for huge dealer mark-ups.

  • needs awd

  • I LOVE minivans-- they are so awesome for daily use with kids. I can't wait to get one of these!

  • This guy must have diabetes.

  • OMG! Wait till my wife see this!!!

  • It is cool bcuz it’s a mini van that doesn’t look like a minivan. I hate minivans lol. Definitely sucks bcuz it doesn’t have a sunroof. 42k for a Kia?!? O hell no never would I ever!! Smh all of these new cars are severely ridiculously overpriced. I’m taking my 42k n buying something else and that’s for damn sure!

  • You sure love your snacks

  • There's one in my neighborhood hidden under covers in someone's driveway. That one day they left it uncovered and I was like what is this?

  • I have a mazda C5, 2021.. but man I want this

  • Skittles?twinkies? Butterfingers?ding dongs?I need a shot of insulin just to watch this channel!

  • Kia use to be cheap now them boys getting pricey. Good looking vehicles tho

  • I love this vehicle 😍

  • wish i could afford it

  • We have a 15 sedona and wish the new ones had all wheel drive. I'll just stick with what I have

  • No AWD, sticking with Telluride!

  • Can you do a review of all 11 seats?

  • Me: 43k for a really nice value package, can I get one plz? Kia dealer: sure, but it’s gonna cost 55k....cuz “chip shortage”

  • Lol keep your hands of my little daughter. Man this guy pumps you up but I still want my Telluride

    • Thanks man for letting me share it all with you!

  • It don’t look like a mini van tho

  • I love the new Carnival, but i wouldn't replace my 21 Telluriode SX Nightfall for it. Looking to buy a 2022 stinger soon as well.

  • Give us awd

  • balls? come on man

  • Nerd

  • is it minivan or something??? LoLLLL ...the length is so long!! or Mini-SUV crossover type? hehehe

  • Kia s#!t the bed not including an AWD version of the Carnival... if they did I'd look past the Telluride

  • 1. I like the exterior styling ( it reminds me of a Ford Explorer ). 2. Kia missed it's make with not doing AWD. 3. I'm tall so most top trim vehicles I can't and won't buy because of the sunroof. ( The sunroof side tracks I always touch, bump or is just in the way all the time. I don't want to drive with my head tilted to the side or reclining back further than I want. ) 4. I love that this vehicle can fit 4x8 sheets of plywood. To bad plywood is so expensive right now that if I needed to buy plywood ( which I do ) I couldn't afford this vehicle. I wish I could fit 4x8 sheets into the Telluride. 5. The price of this vehicle is a little high. I think the Telluride is a better bang for your buck mainly because of it being AWD. 6. The MPG are lacking, I expect to get numbers like those from it having AWD. 7. Good move on Kia moving away from the old ( US ) name. But to bad they didn't go all the way and renamed it for the entire international market to completely remove it from it being called a minivan. They should just be pushing it as a MPV and called it something else ( not the Carnival ). I would consider buying one of these ( the SX without the Prestige because of the sunroof ) but I really can't because it doesn't have AWD unless this FWD is an absolute champ in heavy snow.

    • Thanks for letting me share it with you!

  • Great review!!! What about the cabin quietness??? Is it quite? Double window glasses??? Road/engine noise????

  • So kia built a traverse lol🤣

  • The room in that engine bay, Turbo or Supercharger????

  • Does this have an AWD option?

  • That unexpected dig at Circuit City made me 😆

    • I am so glad that I can bring some laughs to you!

  • Living in Colorado, I’d also love to see AWD. If the Carnival SX and Telluride SX had a baby, it would be perfect!! But AWD It’s the only thing that has me leaning toward the SX Telluride, which I hate because I want the second row bench or folding center seat.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one.

  • Golden brown and delicious 👍

  • This car is packing 🤯

  • 21 inch wheels???

  • Very nice truck just over priced went to the dealer for it and was disappointed ☹️ when dealer ship said they charged 10k overpriced at least the guy was honest! Matt black Kia in Toms River New Jersey

  • How reliable is Kia's engine & transmission ? ... 🤔 rest looks good to me

  • has anyone even gotten the telluride for msrp?

    • I was offered it at MSRP by a local dealer. I went in in summer last year to get one. Told them when they want to sell it at MSRP call me back. They called a few weeks ago after I bought 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit at zero interest to boot. They missed out. I even spent about $20K more on the jeep. But not ever am I paying over MSRP. No car is worth that to me.

  • KIA Killed In Action

  • Carnival front on Telluride would be nice. I always liked the concept version more.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one.

  • I would buy a minivan in heartbeat if the ground clearance wasn't so low. Gotta go with Telluride for those dirt roads.

  • THIS DUDE! LOL The self talk. LOL

  • AWD would make it a real winner

  • 12 inches and you can use it all lol

  • Eh, I'm not that impressed. Doesn't look that much different from my wife's 2016 Sedona. Like that it still has the V6 though. Kia/Hyundai not so great on the four cylinders.

  • ❤️ K I A 🌍

  • Looks like a hearse. No thanks.

  • Wow! Love that this thing looks like an SUV. Bonus points for the new badge that doesn’t scream KIA lol. If only they changed the name from Carnival, had AWD, and some more ground clearance it would outsell every SUV and minivan out there - combined. C’mon Kia AWD on the next gen please!

  • Does the mid row seats go into the floor too??

  • I love these reviews so much. Only zonk is that I get the worst sweet tooth after watching them.

  • I am ok with no sunroof. I am glad the seats are removable again. In my 2012 Sedona, I have been taking the seats out more lately.

  • I get it if it had a kim chi fridge.

  • It's the Cadillac of minivan's baby"

  • Minivan > Crossover all day long and twice on weekends. Just don't leave the Snickers out on a hot day or you'll be drinking it out of your (cavernous) center console with a straw.

  • Insane!! but I like the Telluride better. Just to much going on.

  • Ummm... It looks exactly like a traditional minivan

  • what do you think about only FWD on this vehicle? is it will be a problem on the snow day?

  • if i ever go for a minivan i am definitely going for the carnival. i like that it has rugged suv look on it.

  • My coworker was looking at new Honda Odysseys/Toyota Siennas when I told him to look at the Carnival. Well his wife loved it, and he ended up driving over 400 miles to Denver to get an SX Prestige in the color they wanted. He had a helluva time finding one in the Midwest that wasn't spoken for. They are selling like hotcakes.

  • Can it tow a boat

  • when will KIA release hybrid carnival? I am looking for a SUV having sliding door.

  • Face it this is 3 feet too long and is butt ugly a pig with lipstick only a soccer mother could love the reviews are from car salesmen and family STILL IS A MINIVAN BUS

    • BESIDES 44000 MSRP FOR A MID GRADE ???

  • I would literally consider this if it had AWD and a sunroof. Pennsylvania weather, you definitely need AWD.

    • AWD is way overhyped. I’d take a FWD with snow tires over an AWD with all season anywhere.

    • @Robin Heilman Lol, i cant argue with that. I do know that most people who want AWD never drove a FWD with snow tires, i guess my biggest gripe is the low MPGs.

    • Well... with the smart comment I was going by the video. But not everyone wants fwd. It is more easier to have AWD instead. But who am I... just a female that wants what she wants.

    • Did people drive cars in Pennsylvania before the AWD craze? You can get it with a sunroof and you can always buy snow tires.

    • That is a very good point!

  • 😎😎😎 Awesome review, love the enthusiasm and sense of humor. 🤑🤑🤑 This is an amazing vehicle and I'd definitely pick this over a lot of SUV's and manivans. 👉🏿👍🏿👍🏿🙌🏿🙌🏿 This video was so great I'm subscribing to this channel right now.

    • Thanks for letting me share it with you!

  • Why no AWD? Need it for the hell that is Nebraska in the winter.

  • This is the first minivan that I would look into buying

  • I dont think so the thing looks like it holds one gallon

    • When a Yaris iA holds 14 gallons, I think you’ll be fine.

  • Just bought an Explorer. Really wish I would have gave Kia some consideration.

  • Only thing that would make me question this, is the lack of AWD for those that might deal with ice & snow

    • AWD doesn't do anything for turning and stopping. Snow tire on FWD is good enough for all on road use situations. You are not going to do any performance driving In a Minivan

    • I’m from Alaska. If you get Blizzak tires, you’re good.

    • Buy the right tires, non issue.

  • Anyone else think it looks like a Chevy traverse

  • A blacked out KIA emblem would set it off even more! Plastidip?
