Last month Kia coined a new, fourth-generation minivan and the term “Grand Utility Vehicle” to go with it. Known as the Carnival in its home market of South Korea, and as the Sedona here, Kia’s given us a look at the “comfortable and futuristic” interior we can expect when the model goes on sale. We like the current Sedona, but the imminent upgrade is immediately clear and comprehensive even in photos.

We expect Kia to give the headlights and taillights new graphics while tweaking the front- and rear-end designs. That likely means reworked bumpers, revised intakes, and a tweaked look for the grille. Interior
