2003 Kia Sedona TV Commercial
Recorded Off Air in 2003
The Kia Carnival is a minivan manufactured by Kia Motors, introduced in September 1998, marketed globally under various nameplates — prominently as the Kia Sedona — and currently in its fourth generation.
The first generation Carnival was introduced in 1998 and was marketed in a single, short wheelbase with rear sliding doors. Second-generation models were marketed (2006–2014) in short and long-wheelbase variants, both with rear sliding doors. A rebadged variant of the second generation was offered in North America as the Hyundai Entourage (2007–2009). Beginning in 2010, the second generation model received updated equipment, including Kia's corporate Tiger Nose grille, as introduced by its then-new design chief, Peter Schreyer. Kia introduced its third-generation minivan in 2014, solely in a long-wheelbase format. The fourth generation was introduced in 2020 when Kia began using the Carnival nameplate worldwide.
