We got an SXP. I knew this thing was comfortable, but I didn't realize how comfortable it was until I drove it for 3 hours straight. NO back pains. No butt pains. No drowsy feeling. It was a very good drive from Lakeville to Duluth (MN). I love the comfort. I love the smoothness. I love the sound system (Bose). I love the lane assist and adaptive cruise. I love the seating position and how good the visibility was. I cruised along between 70-75 for the whole trip up and down and got an average of 28mpg. That's spectacular for a V6 carrying 4 people and 'stuff in the back'. I also loved that I can peer to the back with Nanny Cam and see my wife stretched out on the lounge chair with a blanket asleep. My daughter in her booster was also leaned back in comfort mode. In the end, that's what this Carnival is about. Comfort. Creature Comfort. Passenger/driver comfort. We carried a large mammoth stroller and that fit with no problem in the recess area in the back. We also had a cooler and still had room. This thing was designed exactly for a road trip like mine. I drove up and back without feeling tired. This is by far, the most comfortable car I own and have driven. I hope you guys will be able to experience the same in yours.
