The Kia Carnival has always been known for its attractive design, and now it’s getting even better. Kia has unveiled the 2025 model year Carnival with updated front and rear-end designs, new wheels, and an all-new trim level known as Gravity, featuring a sleek blacked-out color scheme.
At the front, the Carnival sports a fresh grille texture and larger headlights that incorporate futuristic LED accent strips, making a bold statement. The taillights have also been revamped, now featuring LED strips that stretch almost the entire width of the vehicle, adding a touch of elegance. One notable highlight is the eye-catching silver and black wheels with a stylish geometric pattern.
In addition, Kia is introducing the Gravity trim level, which comes with sleek black accents on the wheels, window surrounds, and various trim elements. However, it remains uncertain whether this variant will make its way to the U.S. market and, if so, what name it will carry.
While interior photos have yet to be released, it is anticipated that Kia may introduce updates and new features to the cabin. It wouldn’t be surprising to see upgrades in the infotainment screen and the inclusion of new upholstery and trim options.
Regarding the powertrain, no changes are expected for the Carnival. The 2025 model will continue to be equipped with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine, available exclusively with front-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
More information on the U.S.-specific version of the 2025 Carnival is expected to be revealed in the following months. It is anticipated that the minivan will be available for sale in the U.S. either late this year or early in 2024.
