    Default Kia carnival

    So we're in the market for a 7 + seater. On paper the new Kia carnival is winning 😳 never did I think I'll be a people mover mum. Also looking at Toyota Kluger and Ford Territory.
    Please tell me I'm not crazy for wanting a Kia. We don't want to spend more than 45k

    We have a 2015 Kia. Base model. New shape. It looks so good!! It is fabulous. Sooooo much space. Sometimes we spread the kids over the 2 back rows. Othertimes, we have 3 bikes, 3 scooters and all the extras in the back. Even with all seats up there is massive boot space. It is large but it fits in single garage ( i test drove ours home and parked it). We do road trips in it. It has been a big positive for us. We paid $37k i think as it was ex demo with about 80km on it. Still got 7yr warranty etc. I find it beautiful to drive.

    Your not crazy!
    We just bought a kia carnival- older model 2013 as I didn't like the new model- it didn't suit us as well the seat configuration.

    We are loving it! It is so roomy, and not too fancy I worry the kids will ruin it. We row our pop up camper van with it.
    We wanted a mini van and its a shame there isn't many out there any more.

    Any question feel free to ask- we test drove the new model it's so nice they have just changed the seat configuration. So don't know how any anchor points you need but maybe check that out.

    You cannot go past a Kia 7 year warranty. The carnival leads it's class as a 7 seater. We will be upgrading down the track.
