This was done with some help from my friends.
To explain the idea for this video was pitched by a friend/reader/supporter George Torline. He explained that he had video production experience and wanted to help me and V&R out with some video content.
The subject was easy: The 2022 Kia Carnival. The newest MPV looked like a great subject too shoot, with its bold new looks and Kia's marketing push to not call it a minivan. We showed that there was definitely some design and functional alignment with its larger SUV models.
What transpired was more help from my friends. A fellow Volkswagen enthusiast John Seery helped out on the primary day of the shoot. We also had the Carnival at Joey Nova's in Tonka Bay, Minnesota, where a group my friends, including the pizza restaurant's principal (and another V&R reader/supporter) Gary Ezell, climbed into the Carnival to drive its seating capacity.
With all the footage shot across the Twin Cities, Torline and I present our video of the 2022 Kia Carnival…
Thank you for watching!
