The Kia Carnival is a minivan manufactured by Kia Motors, introduced in September 1998, now in its third generation and marketed globally under various nameplates — prominently as the Kia Sedona.
In North America, Hyundai marketed a rebadged variant, the Entourage, from 2006–2009.
The first generation model was manufactured and marketed differently for specific regions, including under a joint venture in the Chinese market with Dongfeng Yueda Kia Automobile Company, as well as the Naza Ria in Malaysia.
In Australia, the Kia Carnival went on sale in 1999, with a standard 5-speed manual and 2.5 L V6 producing 177 hp (132 kW).
A 4-speed automatic was optional. In 2001, it outsold the Toyota Tarago, becoming the top-selling minivan in the country. It was sales leader again in 2004 and 2005, when sales peaked установка датчика коленвала ckp на kia carnival 5,259 units.
In Europe, the first generation was available only with the 2.5 Rover KV6 engine 24V petrol with 163 PS and Euro 2 standard emission level and the 2,9 litres turbodiesel engine установка датчика коленвала ckp на kia carnival 126 PS.
From 2001 Kia Motors introduce the 2.5 KV6Euro 3 with 150 PS and the new 2.9 CRDIcommon rail diesel engine with 144 PS.
In North America, the Sedona came equipped with a 3.5 L V6 engine установка датчика коленвала ckp на kia carnival 195 hp (145 kW) and a 4-speed automatic (later a 5-speed automatic transmission).
The first generation Sedona lacked features that other minivans had such as power sliding doors and power liftgate, a fold flat third row seat, navigation system, rear-view camera, and backup sensors.
Early Sedonas were rated at 15.6 L/100 km (15.1 mpg) (city) and 10.9 L/100 km (21.6 mpg) (highway), but the numbers improved slightly to 14.8 L/100 km (15.9 mpg) (city) and 9.6 L/100 km (24.5 mpg) (highway) for 2005 models.
In North America, the EX was the highest-level body style with amenities such as interior and exterior chrome accents, interior wood grain, leather wrapped steering wheel and gear shift knob and alloy wheels, with optional leather appointed seating, sunroof, and Установка датчика коленвала ckp на kia carnival player.
Kia introduced the second generation Carnival/Sedona worldwide in 2006–in short (SWB) and long-wheelbase (LWB) models – with a 2-inch-wider front track, 3-inch-wider rear track and reduced turning radius than the first generation.
The SWB model shares its platform with the Kia Magentis – and was specially designed for the European market, where it falls in the large MPV class.
With a lighter engine, greater use of high-tensile steel in the body, and a lighter transmission and rear suspension, the second generation model weighed approximately 400 lbs less than the first generation.
In certain markets, Kia offered the minivan in both wheelbases (e.g., in North America, Australia) or in other markets, simply as установка датчика коленвала ckp на kia carnival short-wheelbase configuration (e.g., UK, France).
Globally, the minivan was offered with four engines as well as manual and automatic transmissions.
Equipment content varied widely by market–including such features as six airbags (front, front side and air curtain), Anti-lock braking system (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Traction Control System (TCS) & Brake Assist System (BAS), dual or tri-zone heating and cooling, "walk through" aisle between the front seats with fold-down tray, tilt/height adjustable steering wheel, Isofix anchor points, rear side sliding doors with "hold open" locking feature (to prevent an open door from inadvertently closing), second row power roll-down windows, third row 60/40-fold-in-floor seat (LWB only), power sliding doors and liftgate, backup sensors, and in-dash navigation.
In European and Asian markets, the SWB models offered a full range of options and available equipment, with a 2+3+2 seating configuration (an essential format in a large MPV for Europe). By contrast, in the U.S.
the SWB model is offered only in a base equipment level with a 2+2+3 seating configuration–and high-end options exclusive to LWB models.

The North American configuration earned a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for all seating positions in frontal and side-impact crashes.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety also rated the Sedona "Good" – its highest rating – in front, side and rear impacts. The IIHS has christened the 2006 Sedona a "Gold Top Safety Pick", making the Sedona (and the similar Hyundai Установка датчика коленвала ckp на kia carnival the safest minivan currently tested.

In 2013, Kia re-launched the Sedona as a 2014 model with minor updates, which started selling around the end of May.
The second generation Sedona was the second top selling large MPV in the UK market, and in 2010 received a new grille, new установка датчика коленвала ckp на kia carnival (including a установка датчика коленвала ckp на kia carnival camera built into the rear-view mirror) and a single engine choice, a 192PS 2.2 CRDi I4 replacing the 183PS 2.9 CDRi.

The second generation Carnival went on sale in Australia in January 2006.
Initially, the long-wheelbase 3.8L V6 5-speed automatic Grand Carnival was sold alongside the previous generation 2.5L V6 Carnival, until the second-generation SWB Carnival arrived in August of that year, available in both 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic, and new 2.7L V6 engine.
Both models sat 8 passengers. A 2.9L turbo diesel engine was introduced in the Grand Carnival in March 2009. In June 2010, the Carnival and Grand Carnival underwent a mild facelift, the manual transmission was dropped from the SWB model, and the LWB model received a new 3.5L V6 and 6-speed automatic.
In 2011, the SWB Carnival was dropped entirely, while the LWB model gained the new 2.2L "R" series diesel engine, replacing the previous 2.9L engine. The Carnival was Australia's best-selling people mover between 2007 and 2013.
The Kia Sedona (Carnival) has установка датчика коленвала ckp на kia carnival the 2007 MotorWeek "Best Minivan" award in its 2007 Drivers' Choice Awards and The Car Book's 2007 "Best Bet" distinction.

From 2006–2009, Kia manufactured a rebadged variant of the Carnival for sister company Hyundai.It was manufactured in Soha-Ri Plant in Gwangmyeong-Si which is part of Gyeonggi-Do,South Korea.
Called the Hyundai Entourage, the Hyundai version was briefly cancelled in August 2005, but resurrected in October without affecting its introduction date. The production Entourage was shown at the Chicago Auto Show in February 2006 and went on sale in April 2006. While otherwise similar to the Carnival except for the name, the Entourage was only available in extended-length because of the mid-sizeHyundai Veracruzcrossover SUV, which measured about the same length as the short-wheelbase Carnival.
Unlike the Carnival, the Entourage was never a sales success, and in April 2009, the Entourage was discontinued for the 2010 model year.
However, the Carnival remained in production and was updated with more features so it could better compete with the Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey and the Chrysler minivans. After Entourage production ended, Kia, despite 49.2% owned by Hyundai, continued its contract to build Hyundai vehicles, and Kia-built Hyundai vehicles continued well for the United States & Canada markets as Kia decided to build the 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe in its new West Point, Georgia plant.
Entourage's revised styling was adopted in South Korea as a facelift for the Kia Carnival, except for revised grilles suited to the Kia brand.
The Entourage was powered by the company's 3.8 L LambdaV6. It seated seven people with optional equipment ranging from automatic climate control, leather seating, power sliding doors and tailgate, reverse sensors, and a six-disc in-dash CD changer.
The American configuration of the Hyundai Entourage earned a five-star safety rating–the highest honor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration bestows–for all seating positions in frontal and side-impact crashes.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rates the Entourage "Good"–its highest rating – in front, side and rear impacts. The IIHS rated the 2007 Entourage a "Gold Top Safety Pick," making Entourage with the similar Kia Sedona the safest minivans tested for 2007.
The 2009 Hyundai Entourage minivan was recognized as a Best Family Car for 2009 by Parents magazine and Edmunds.com in their annual list of family vehicles.
The Hyundai Entourage ranked 3rd for the "20 least expensive 2009 vehicles to insure" list by Insure.com.

The 2015 model debuted at the 2014 New York International Установка датчика коленвала ckp на kia carnival Show in April.
