Kia Carnival for Sale - Buy Used & Salvage Kia

The Kia Carnival is a four-door minivan designed for large families. It made its debut in 1998 and was marketed differently to different regions. In Australia, it quickly became the fastest selling minivan, outperforming its rivals and maintaining sales lead in 2004 and 2005. The following year, the second-generation Kia Carnival was born, and the goal was world domination. Also called Kia Sedona, the second-generation carnival was a few inches wider than the previous model, with a front engine and front wheel drive layout. It was well received. But, it was the subsequent updates to the 2011 model that earned it some of the highest safety ratings. Sales weren’t too impressive so, in 2012, the Kia Sedona was discontinued for the American market. In parts of Europe and Australia, the Kia Carnival/Sedona remained one of the top selling minivans. Now in its third generation, the Kia Carnival is now being marketed as a multi-purpose van rather than just a minivan.
