It's not every day that a minivan rolls into the Top Gear garage, so you can imagine the joy on our faces when a Kia Grand Carnival was dropped on our lap late last week. It was a chance to get to know one of most premium seven-seaters in our market. Needless to say, we were excited.

After a couple of days with the vehicle, we have to say the Korean hauler's right up there with the best of them. The car simply ticks all the right boxes. It seats seven comfortably, features an incredibly spacious cabin, comes equipped with a ton of convenience features, and provides solid cruising ability. It's an ideal combination of practicality, comfort and premium quality.

Other niceties? Almost everything opens with the push of a button, its seats are surprisingly easy to configure, and it provides a great environment for long drives. Long story short, this is one very nice piece of Kia. Want to see more of this road trip-ready minivan? Just press play on the video above.
