Kia Unveils 2025 Carnival Minivan with Redesigned Exterior and Hybrid Power
A First Look at Kia's Updated Family Minivan
Amidst the buzz of the 2023 Japan Mobility Show in Tokyo, Kia is making waves by introducing two significant products this week. Shortly after revealing the 2025 K5, the Korean automaker takes the wraps off the 2025 Carnival, offering a glimpse of its exterior design. While interior details remain a mystery for now, the refreshed minivan showcases noticeable changes to its exterior, from reimagined lighting to a refined rear end.
Revamped Lighting Design
The 2025 Carnival sports a fully redesigned set of headlights and taillights with a unique layout resembling the letter “T.” The front grille is set to feature distinct patterns based on the trim level. Adding to the visual diversity, Kia introduces a “Gravity” grade with dark metallic accents, giving the minivan a bolder presence. The front bumper receives a cleaner design, having bid farewell to the separate fog lights. At the rear, the indentation for the license plate has been repositioned lower on the tailgate.
