Since most people don't want to be seen in a minivan these days, Kia styled the 2022 Carnival to look more like an SUV.

It is also the first model to wear the brand's new logo, which looks more like "K-backwards-N" than "Kia."

From the A-pillars forward, the Carnival projects big SUV energy with an upright grille and a squared-off, boxy silhouette.

Bystanders compared the Carnival's design to vehicles like the Ford Explorer and Chevy Tahoe but were surprised when the minivan's sliding doors opened.

Details like the L-shaped chrome C-pillar break up the Carnival's profile from most angles, but take a second look and its minivan shape becomes apparent and unmistakable.
