Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Carnival than in the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Carnival will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Kia Carnival, which has a much lower MSRP.

Dimensions
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is a little wider than the Kia Carnival, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Carnival.

Handling
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid has a larger turning radius than the Kia Carnival, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid has a little less horsepower than the Kia Carnival.

Utility
The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid has less seating than the Kia Carnival, making the Kia Carnival the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid as you will in the Kia Carnival.
