Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Carnival than in the Dodge Grand Caravan, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Carnival offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Dodge Grand Caravan, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Grand Caravan as you will with the Kia Carnival, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). Clearly, the Dodge Grand Caravan is a better financial choice over the Kia Carnival, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Grand Caravan is much higher than that for the Kia Carnival.

Dimensions
The Dodge Grand Caravan is about the same width as the Kia Carnival. When looking at overall length, the Dodge Grand Caravan takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Carnival.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Dodge Grand Caravan and the Kia Carnival are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Dodge Grand Caravan will do just as well as the Kia Carnival, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Dodge Grand Caravan and the Kia Carnival.

Utility
The Dodge Grand Caravan 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 Dodge Grand Caravan as you will in the Kia Carnival.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Grand Caravan is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Carnival.
