Comparison Review

Comfort
The Nissan NV200 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Carnival.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Kia Carnival, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan NV200.

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 Kia Carnival will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan NV200, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Kia Carnival and the Nissan NV200 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Carnival is much wider than the Nissan NV200, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Kia Carnival, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Nissan NV200.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Kia Carnival does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Nissan NV200.

Handling
The Kia Carnival has a larger turning radius than the Nissan NV200, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Carnival greatly out-muscles the Nissan NV200.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Kia Carnival more than the Nissan NV200, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. The Kia Carnival has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Nissan NV200.

Warranty
The Nissan NV200 offers a little more coverage in its basic warranty than the Kia Carnival.
