Additional safety features, however, make this model even safer. Learn what’s new in the safety department for this model year.

Safety Technology

The 2022 Kia Carnival comes with various safety technology as standard, with additional safety implementations available in the higher trims. With the base LX trim, Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Departure Warning come standard. With the premium SX trim, you’ll receive a few extra features like Collision Avoidance-Assist, Cyclist Detection, and Surround View Monitor.

Low Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH)

The minivan comes with the LATCH system that makes it easy to secure a child seat and keep it firmly in place. The tethers are constructed in a way that’s intuitive to use and set up the correct way. This is a huge peace of mind if traveling with children under the age of four. The LATCH system works with most child seat models.

How to Stay Safe on the Road

The Kia Carnival is a safe vehicle by virtue of it being a large minivan and having a suite of safety technology. However, remember that it’s still up to you to adhere to safe driving practices.

Here are some safety tips when operating a minivan:

  • Be mindful of the greater blind spots
  • Minivans require a greater turning radius; be sure there’s extra space when making turns
  • Even with camera assistance, don’t hesitate to have a spotter outside assist you when parking or pulling out in tight spaces.
