Life is a Carnival - Believe it or not. Introducting the 2022 Kia Carnival SX Prestige
I recently went on a road trip to Southern California to see the Grand National Roadster Show, the grand-daddy of hot rod shows. I guess it would have been nice if someone had lent me a nice hot rod roadster but that was never going to happen. But I was able to snag a 2022 Kia Carnival SX Prestige. It sure was nice to travel in style.
Sure the Carnival was a bit big for just three guys but it was nice to not have to sit shoulder to shoulder.

I don't stop much when I'm on a road trip. I don't like fast food so I only stop to eat if I'm starving. Fuel up the vehicle and bathroom breaks are all I really need. I didn't even need to fuel up the Carnival. In theory the Carnival will travel just under 500 miles on a tank of gas; it has a 19-gallon tank. When I filled up at our destination it took about 16-gallons. According to the onboard computer the Carnival averaged just under 26-mpg. For most of the highway portion of the trip I had the cruise set at 80-mph. The EPA rates the Carnival at 26-mpg highway and 19-city.
