5 Reasons Why The Kia Carnival Is the Best People Mover

If you are on the hunt for a people mover, we have no doubts you have come across the Kia Carnival at least once before. After all, it is Australia’s favourite people mover. So the team at Mantello Kia Roxburgh Park are here to reassure you that it is the best option for you and your family. 

The Kia Carnival has forever been a much-loved people mover. Whilst it may have once been perceived as a clunky and a bit rough around the edges kind of vehicle, just like the iPhone, we too have evolved into a slender and irresistible commodity. 

Whilst it doesn’t quite look like a Ferrari or a Porsche, it does make the hustle and bustle of everyday life with kids a heck of a lot easier than any other car, and here’s why:


We know what you’re thinking, a tiny Kia Rio is easy to drive, a monster Kia Carnival is not, but we’re here to tell you that isn’t necessarily the case. 

The Carnival has been noted as “car-like” to drive due to its lower centre of gravity and longer wheelbase, making the steering feel lighter. Platinum models as well have an array of sensors and cameras, making them even easier to drive. 

The larger design has also resulted in a much quieter ride thanks to noise, vibration and harshness improvements. 


You’d think that for a car with the sole purpose of moving people, where what it makes up in practicality it lacks exciting features, however not the Kia Carnival. 

The entry-level model includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto through an 8-inch multimedia screen, rear parking sensors, roof rails, rear climate control and necessary safety features such as Blind Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA).

Some additional features can include bigger wheels, a class-leading 12.3 inch high-resolution LCD display integrating Android Auto and Apple CarPlay with a user-friendly interface, Bose premium sound system, dual sunroof and plenty more!


As far as people movers go, it is the most modern and stylish people mover out there. People may argue that SUV’s are perhaps more appealing to the eye, but the Kia Carnival has fused an SUV-inspired design and progressive styling that boasts an exterior like no other, so you get the best of an SUV’s favourable design with all the benefits of a people mover. 

The interior also boasts significant levels of space, comfort and futuristic environment for passengers in all rows. 


If you have more than three kids or need to move more than five people in and out of the car with complete ease, this eight-seater is a no brainer. 

School pickups, drop-offs, after school activities, sports, dropping off and picking up friends, and travelling has never been more comfortable and easy than in a people mover.


Compared to similar cars, the latest Kia Carnival screams value for money no matter which grade you opt for. For a hugely upgraded vehicle, you can get a brand new Carnival for as little as $50,390.

The new and improved petrol Carnivals now consume 10 percent less fuel compared to previous editions, and the diesel Carnival has reduced its official combined fuel figure from 7.6 to 6.5L/100km, which is impressive for a vehicle its size. 

So what are you waiting for? Bring the whole family down to Mantello Kia Roxburgh Park and take the Kia Carnival for a test drive today!
