2022 Kia Carnival Trim Levels

Ready to take the family on long adventures in the Louisville and Elizabethtown, Kentucky, areas? Maybe you’re planning to head up to Clarksville, Indiana, instead?

Beyond those fun aspects, there are plenty of unique safety, entertainment, and interior preferences to choose from in the many Kia Carnival trim levels.

To help you figure out which trim would work best for you and yours, The Kia Store has put together this guide. Keep reading to learn more!

2022 Kia Carnival Review

Safety and Entertainment for Everyone: LX Trim

We’re already off to a great start with the first trim level of the Kia Carnival. The LX offers plenty of entertainment and safety features.

Coming standard with both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, the seven passengers of this Kia trim can enjoy smartphone-compatible technology for miles. Enjoy your favorite apps on the 8-inch touchscreen display!

Under the blanket of the Kia Drive Wise driver-assisting technologies, you can enjoy the help of features like:

  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA)
  • Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
  • Lane Following Assist (LFA)
  • Parking Distance Warning (PDW)
  • Safe Exit Assist (SEA)

One of the more exciting assist features is the Rear Occupant Alert (ROA). The ultrasonic sensors can detect objects and people in the back seat. This feature is useful for remembering a small child in the rear seats. It can also detect movement in the back while the Kia model is unattended and will alert you on your compatible smartphone.

Great Quality Upgraded: LX Seat Package

Kia Carnival LX

The LX seat package offers the same forward-thinking features of the LX trim, but with the bonus of an extra seat. Now, the 2022 Kia Carnival can carry up to eight people.

This extra seat is installed in the center of the second row, giving you the chance to fit more kids or more of their friends. Drive comfortably with a full cabin for miles and miles!

Navigation and More on the Kia Carnival Trim Levels: EX Trim

The EX trim also features eight passenger seats, but it has a few other assets that sets it apart from the two previous trim levels.

Stay connected to the status of your Kia SUV right from your compatible smartphone with the convenience of a UVO link with navigation.

Wherever you travel, always find your way home with this trim’s navigation system and its 12.3-inch display.

In addition, you now have the benefit of navigation-based Smart Cruise Control. Not only will the Smart Cruise Control match your pace to other detected Kia vehicles on the highway, but it will also adjust your speed based on speed limit changes and traffic updates received from the navigation system.

Interior Upgrade: SX Trim

Kia Carnival SX

Take advantage of an interior upgrade with the SX trim. While some of the previous trim levels had power driver seats, this trim has a power driver seat with a memory function to remember seat positions. You also have the benefit of a power-adjustable passenger seat, meaning you can both enjoy the electronic ease of seat adjustment.

Keep an eye on your surroundings with the Surround View Monitor (SVM), which helps you know what’s going on with a 360-degree view. Nothing will get away from your eagle eye when backing up.

Premium Audio System: SX Prestige

As the final step on the Kia Carnival trim levels, the SX Prestige lives up to its name.

We’re back to seven seats, but the second row gets an upgrade with VIP lounge seats. With the adjustable headrest and leg rest of these seats—along with built-in heating for the winter and ventilation to keep cool in the summer—the middle row will be kept nice and comfortable.

Keep your passengers entertained with the crisp surround sound of your Kia car’s Bose Premium Audio system. With 12 speakers and a subwoofer, you can all jam out with joy.
