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. The 2021 Kia Telluride earns our Best Car To Buy nod with its excellent features, warranty, space, and style.
