2022 Kia Carnival Cargo Space

You won't believe how many clowns can fit in this Kia Carnival thanks to its large cargo hold. Behind the third-row seats, there is 40.2 cubic feet of space, which is several cubic feet more than in most other minivans. When you fold down the third row, you get 86.9 cubic feet (this is the maximum capacity in SX Prestige models because of its non-removable second-row lounge seats). With the second and third rows tucked away, you have a maximum capacity of 145.1 cubic feet.

The Carnival's cargo area is also quite versatile; the second-row seats can be folded down or removed entirely, and the third-row seats fold into the floor.

How Many People Does the kia Carnival Seat?

Depending on the trim level, the kia Carnival can seat seven or eight people. The first two rows of seats are fantastic, with plenty of space and support. Even in the third row, adults have enough legroom to ride comfortably, though taller passengers may wish for a little more headroom. The SX Prestige trim includes "VIP lounge seats" that are more akin to what you'd find in a luxury vehicle, but because they can't be removed, they reduce third-row accessibility and max cargo capacity by about 60 cubic feet.

Kia Carnival and Child Car Seats

The second and third rows of seats each have three complete sets of LATCH connectors. For its ease of use, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this LATCH system the second-highest rating of Acceptable. The system is simple to use, but upper tethers are difficult to locate.
