In 2017, there was a hot new minivan on the block — the stylish, luxurious, high-tech Chrysler Pacifica. But now the Pacifica is the oldest current minivan. The newest is the 2022 Kia Carnival, which replaces the old Kia Sedona and is making a splash for being stylish, luxurious, and high-tech. Sound familiar?
Which of these vans is the best: the all-new Kia or the long-popular Chrysler? In an added wrinkle, Chrysler has just updated the Pacifica with fresh styling, more features, and an upgraded interior. We recently tested the all-new Carnival and the updated 2021 Chrysler Pacifica so that we could compare the vans across eight categories and then name an overall winner.
