“Over the river and through the woods…” The holiday season is near, and that means holiday travel! If you’re planning a trip to visit grandparents or other relatives for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, or whatever reason, you know things can get pretty stressful. And if you plan on driving to your destination, you can be sure of added anxiety due to a myriad of possibilities.
So, if you’re looking for ways to keep your trip as hassle-free as possible, do yourself a favor and consider trading in your current sedan or SUV for a brand new Kia Carnival MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle, aka minivan). That’s right. Minivans were the most popular family vehicles for decades before the SUV reigned supreme. And they held the position for a very simple reason. Practicality. You can find practicality and much more in a Kia Carnival from Fiesta Kia in Albuquerque, NM.
Why minivans went out of style is anyone’s guess. We think it’s partly because so many people branded them as “uncool” when the SUV craze began. Well, just like fashion, what goes out of style comes back again, and the minivan is on a comeback. There are many reasons why a minivan or MPV is an excellent choice for a family hauler, whether during holiday times or everyday use.
One of those reasons is roominess. The Kia Carnival can comfortably accommodate up to eight passengers, so most families and their gear will fit and still have plenty of personal space. The last thing you want to hear the whole time you’re on the road is “Mikey’s touching me!” over and over again. What’s more, the Carnival is rated “Best in Class” for passenger and cargo space, with three available seating arrangements, and the availability of two rows of heated and ventilated leather or SynTex seat trim can make winter drives even cozier.
Another aspect in favor of the Kia Carnival is its convenience. The Carnival Multi-Purpose Vehicle was built with families in mind. From multiple cup holders for fast-food stops to nine USB chargers to the power sliding doors and liftgate, the Kia Carnival has loads of family-focused innovations. You’ll find family travel so much easier. than stuffing everyone into the back seat of your midsize car or SUV.
Finally, there’s the comfort factor. The VIP Lounge Seats in the second row can recline nearly horizontal, and footrests rise from underneath, creating a luxurious relaxation spot. The big sliding doors (on both sides!) and high seats make attaching baby/child car seats a cinch. The spaciousness alone produces a supremely comfortable ride for all, and the lower ride height than an SUV makes it easy to hop in and out safely.
The minivan, or in this case, MPV, has come a long way since its inception; when you see the Kia Carnival MPV up close, you’ll see just how far. With best-in-class horsepower, the capability for towing up to 3500 pounds, and a plethora of next-level tech enhancements, the Carnival is at the top of the minivan game. Kia also ranks as one of the highest in long-term reliability among mass-market brands and comes with one of the finest warranties in the industry.
