Daggone, that is one heckuva good looking vehicle!

Thanks ! I agree....And payment didn’t go up much; up one trim level. Lots of incentives.

I keep mistaking that water bottle for a stickshift.

Imagine if it were a diesel, manual, with the all wheel drive. 
 

i agree it sort of looks like a stick shift in the picture. LOL

"We all know what Chrysler’s coolest minivan is: the turbo, manual first-gen Dodge Caravan. We all know Ford’s coolest minivan: the rear-wheel drive, manual transmission Ford Aerostar. And we all know that GM’s most interesting people-movers were the “Dustbuster” minivans. Except the Holy Grail variant of those was never sold stateside."

if i could just figure out how to make this brown, and put a diesel hybrid AWD powertrain in it with manual transmission, add some cladding, jack it up, add some arbitrary swoopy windows and fender flares, and then we'd have the ultimate category killer, AWD diesel hybrid manual crossover coupe minivan.

Too bad the Renault Avantime was never sold here—talk about in a category of its own—2dr hardtop coupe luxury minivan...

^ Your undying fascination with that turd is indefensible. ;)

Sometimes I let my freak flag fly, somethings just can’t be explained.  The fwd and transverse engine goes against my beliefs, but I dig the styling and that it’s a 2dr Ht.  Very unique.

Interesting that the 2021 Kia Minivan reminds me of the Pontiac. 🤔

I do wonder how well this would sell here if they brought it from China, built in America and sold the Buick Luxury Minivan.

Seems to be a very popular executive transport auto in China.

Interior is very Nice I have to say.

And I think they'll call it Carnival here too, according to reports.

Got it, yes the lighting and weird way that it reflects on the gas door is bizarre. Interesting that they have 3 different models for sale in China.

Talk about a while since I had looked at the Buick web site for China. WOW do they have a big variety of Autos.

now it's KIA ----CARNIVAL------......CARNIVAL   that looks like a pulled previous Ford Explorer.

2022 Kia Carnival official fuel economy better than Sedona | Autoblog

whoops, others beat me to the punch.  I do not like the CARNIVAL name, and of course, I don't think it looks anything fetching.  In fact, it looks slightly weird.  to me anyways.

The proportions of the new Carnaval look more CUVish than van..

Yet no AWD while the Pacifica and Toyota Sienna offer it. Seems odd to not have that as an option since it really is just a taller FWD based CUV.
