The much-anticipated 2025 Kia Carnival facelift hits dealerships after its U.S. reveal earlier this year.

This refreshed version boasts a sportier look, introduces a groundbreaking hybrid drivetrain, and comes with a moderately increased starting price.

While the base LX trim now starts at $36,500, representing a nearly $2,000 bump, it still delivers exceptional value.

Passengers will enjoy the comfort of seven seats, independent climate control for three zones, and a user-friendly infotainment system with wireless smartphone integration. Safety remains a priority with a full suite of advanced driver-assistance features included.

Looking for a minivan that blends functionality with environmental responsibility? The 2025 Kia Carnival offers just that. Alongside its proven 3.5L V6 engine, Kia introduces a new hybrid powertrain for the eco-conscious driver.

While the V6 delivers familiar power (287 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque), the hybrid option prioritizes fuel efficiency. Combining a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine with a 72-hp electric motor, the hybrid produces a combined 242 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque.

Both powertrains come mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Kia offers the hybrid across various trims, with a starting price of $40,500, slightly higher than the non-hybrid trims that begin at $34,565. The top-of-the-line SX Prestige hybrid reaches $52,600.
