    Kia’s 2025 Carnival Hybrid: Pioneering Sustainable Mobility

    Kia America has unveiled the 2025 Carnival with a new hybrid powertrain, marking a significant step towards sustainable mobility. This refreshed Carnival lineup introduces advanced hybrid technology to an already versatile multi-purpose vehicle (MPV), enhancing its environmental performance.

    Sustainable Power Meets Innovation

    The new Carnival Hybrid features a 1.6-liter turbo-hybrid engine paired with a 54kW motor, delivering a combined output of 242 horsepower and 271 lb.-ft. of torque. This powertrain not only improves fuel efficiency but also reduces emissions, reflecting Kia’s commitment to sustainable driving solutions. Key features like 17-inch aerodynamic wheels, Active Air Flaps, and paddle regenerative braking further enhance the vehicle’s aerodynamic performance and energy recovery.

    Advanced Technology for a Greener Future

    The 2025 Carnival’s design combines bold exterior elements with a sleek, high-tech interior, emphasizing sustainability and efficiency. The dashboard integrates a 4.2-inch TFT and a 12.3-inch screen with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. EX trims and above offer a full digital instrumentation upgrade, featuring a 12.3-inch cluster and a 12.3-inch infotainment and navigation display.

    Family-Centric, Eco-Friendly Features

    The Carnival Hybrid’s interior is designed with families in mind. The “Slide-Flex” seating system offers versatile configurations for up to eight passengers. Dual power sliding doors with hands-free operation are standard, while EX trims and above include features such as an in-cabin camera, intercom, and Quiet Mode. A voice recognition system responds to commands for opening windows or adjusting climate control, enhancing convenience and reducing distractions.

    Enhanced Safety and Connectivity

    Equipped with Kia’s latest Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), the Carnival Hybrid includes Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and Highway Driving Assist 2. These systems are designed to enhance safety and driver convenience, promoting a secure driving experience. The next-generation Connected Car Navigation Cockpit (ccNC) operating system allows over-the-air updates, ensuring the vehicle remains up-to-date with the latest enhancements.

    Commitment to Sustainability

    Kia America, headquartered in Irvine, California, continues to lead in automotive innovation and sustainability. By integrating hybrid technology into the 2025 Carnival, Kia underscores its dedication to reducing environmental impact and advancing sustainable transportation solutions.
