2022 Kia Carnival: New Kia logo here in September, but digital dash and auto wipers delayed to 2022

The 2022 Kia Carnival people mover will gain the Korean brand's new logo within months – but a selection of much-awaited technology features aren't slated to be added until next year. Kia Australia confirmed to CarAdvice that Model Year 2022 (MY22) examples of the Carnival will arrive in Australian showrooms "around" September wearing the company's new logo, which debuted locally on the Cerato small car in early June.
