But hey; it’s got 2 sliding doors and 3 rows of seating so call it what you want. However, the Carnival does distinguish itself in other ways, mainly in its SUV-like styling. And it totally works. I can’t tell you how many people have said “this is a minivan?” And the other aspect that’s been throwing people off is this new Kia badge, making its debut on the Carnival. No one has any clue what it is and for some reason the mysterious logo has attracted lots of attention.
