Characterized by a grand and sculptural grille, the front fascia boasts a chiseled and assertive design, juxtaposed by intricate and high-tech details in cube-like headlamps that are accentuated by Kia’s signature amber-colored Star Map daytime running lights.

Around back, the Carnival looks more refined with smooth surfaces and clean lines. The license plate housing was repositioned to the lower part of the tailgate for a polished appearance, while the crisp contours of the Star Map taillights add depth to the rear. An available wide and contoured skid plate contrasts against the black cladding on the lower rear fascia completes the exterior redesign.

The 2025 Kia Carnival’s spacious and adaptable interior accommodates 7- or 8-passengers while retaining its best-in-class cargo capacity of 145.1 cubic feet behind the first row. For 8-passenger configurations, the “Slide-Flex” seating system enables various arrangements, featuring a sliding second-row center seat that facilitates convenient access for the front passenger to a baby or child seated in it. As a hallmark of the Carnival, removable second-row seats and fold-in-floor third-row seats remain integral features.

Ambient lighting that stretches across the width of the dashboard add a clean and three-dimensional effect. The expansive center console boasts generous dual cupholders that can accommodate large beverages. Embedded lights within the seat belt buckle provide illumination, aiding in their visibility during low-light conditions.
