Even for this class, the Carnival’s internal size is exceptional. Seven people can sit in the basic LX’s three rows of seating. Capacity is increased to eight by adding a configurable third row, which is standard on all other trims and optional on the LX. When not in use, the middle seat can be folded into a table or pulled forward to bring a young kid closer to the parents. The SX Prestige can accommodate seven passengers with the second-row captain’s seats, which are free of charge. The Carnival provides 40.2 cubic feet of cargo space when all rows are occupied. There are 86.9 cubic feet available when the third row is folded into the floor. More space than any other minivan on the market, 145.1 cubic feet, is made available by folding down the second row.
