The soft breeze and caressing sunshine of spring suggest that it’s the perfect time of year for a road trip. Whether you’re going wilderness camping, enjoying the sand and surf, or simply taking a long and refreshing drive along a scenic highway, great company and a reliable mobile companion are all you need. Today at Kia BUZZ, read the reasons why the Kia Grand Carnival (known as ‘Sedona’ in some markets), our prize-winning minivan is the perfect choice for on-the-road adventures!


From Clutter to Comfort

In recent years, the Kia Grand Carnival has aptly been rebranded as an MPV – multi-purpose vehicle – to better describe its wide ranging features. As an eight-seat people carrier, the Grand Carnival first and foremost offers supreme comfort and practical functionality, with generous storage capacity and legroom. Each seat, outfitted with anti-microbial, stain-proof material, delivers added comfort with recline, headrest and retractable footrest options.




Winner of the 2015 Ward’s 10 Best Interiors award, the vehicle provides flexible seating configurations to suit the needs and preferences of all occupants. In addition, the Grand Carnival boasts a spacious rear storage area as well as organizing bins throughout that allow for clutter to be stashed away.




More than just a Mobile Unit

The Grand Carnival also eases long hours of traveling by providing features that accommodate modern day technological comforts. The model provides up to eight outlets, including AC power outlets and fast charging USB ports for plugging and charging on-the-go.




With just a few additions and adjustments, the Grand Carnival can even double as a mobile office or entertainment unit enabling the enjoyment of high-tech devices during long hours on the road.


The Perfect View




Stylish and safe, the Grand Carnival offers ideal features for cruising on the road. Large side windows and dual sun roof allow for full enjoyment of desired views while automatic power sliding doors permit quick and convenient passenger drop off and pickup.




More importantly, the Grand Carnival has earned the prestigious designation of Top Safety Pick from the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), maintaining its reputation as one of the safest MPVs on the market. Extensively engineered, the vehicle’s structural integrity and lightweight body provides stability and precise handling on rough roads.
