The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Kia Carnival loads up on luxury, though it cedes Olympic-grade flexibility to other minivans. The 2021 Kia Sorento crossover SUV strikes out in a new styling direction, and brings hybrid and plug-in models along for the adventure.
