Trim Levels (Exterior)
The 2023 Carnival offers five total trim levels. You'll enjoy exterior elements such as 17-inch alloy wheels, auto headlight control, variable intermittent windshield wipers, power sliding rear doors, and color-matching and power adjusted outside mirrors.
Moving up to the EX trim adds Syntex seat trim and 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat.
The SX trim is a big leap forward with its 19-inch machine-finished alloys, 12.3 inch interior touch screen with navigation system, wireless phone charger, 8 speaker radio audio system, and much more.
The SX Prestige trim ups the curb appeal with Gloss Black-finished alloys, LED front fog lights, and front power folding outside mirrors.
Regardless of trim level, the same engine powers all 2023 Carnival. Kia's 3.5-liter V-6 features direct injection and multi-port injection. This efficient beast pushes out 290 horsepower and provides 3500 lbs of towing capacity. 2023 Carnival include the eight-speed automatic transmission with front wheel drive (FWD).
Passengers are protected by an arc of airbags that are deployed and inflated intelligently based on the severity of certain impacts. A lighter high-strength steel structure with improved body rigidity brings greater peace of mind and a more confident ride.
