2024 Kia Carnival For Sale In Kennesaw, GA

New Kia Carnival

What’s New?

The new Kia Carnival for sale offers a striking resemblance to its 2023 predecessor, as it contains the same automatic transmission, drivetrain and 3.5-liter V-6 engine. You’ll also benefit from the same EPA-estimated fuel economy and exterior and interior dimensions.

As a carryover model, changes are minimal. The EX trim no longer features all-auto up/down and safety power windows and the Carnival EX Power Tailgate Delete Package is no longer available.

The 2024 Kia Carnival remains a solid option for growing families who want to take advantage of a three-row passenger vehicle that can tackle errands, soccer practice pick-ups and drop-offs, road trips and more. Visit our dealership, Jim Ellis Kia of Kennesaw, to learn more about the new Kia Carnival for sale in Kennesaw, GA, today before you stop by for a test drive.

Kia Carnival Safety

Kia Carnival Highway Driving Assist

Highway Driving Assist

The Kia Carnival MPV is equipped with an array of advanced safety features that are designed to enhance every driving experience, one of which is Highway Driving Assist. Highway Driving Assist is available on the EX, SX and SX Prestige trim levels and it can control your vehicle’s acceleration, deceleration and steering functions. This feature implements smart technology capable of reading the posted speed limits on roads and adjusting your vehicle’s speed to remain within a safe range and keep pace with other cars.

Using an exterior camera, Highway Driving Assist also helps keep your vehicle centered in the lane and will make minor corrections via the steering wheel if needed. However, it’s important not to rely solely on this feature when driving. You should always drive safely and use caution.

To see how this feature works firsthand, come by to test drive the 2024 Kia Carnival from our new Kia inventory.


Blind-Spot and Surround View Monitor

While Blind-Spot Collision Avoidance Assistance comes on every trim level, the Blind-Spot View Monitor and Surround View Monitor come on the SX and SX Prestige, the two highest trims. These additional driver assistance features work together to help you get more technological eyes on the road to check for pedestrians, cyclists, other cars and more.

The Blind-Spot View Monitor system wakes up when you activate the turn signal. It shows a live video of the MPV’s blind spot in the instrument cluster via the mirror-mounted camera. This feature is incredibly helpful for knowing when it’s safe to turn or move into another lane.

The Surround View Monitor covers more ground by offering a virtual bird’s-eye view of the Kia Carnival on the navigation system, which is especially helpful in tight spaces or crowded areas. It uses four cameras to provide real-time images, enabling optimum convenience and visibility during low-speed and parking maneuvers.
