The Kia Carnival is all set to take the Indian MPV market by a storm. While in the lower end of the spectrum, we have mass market favourites like the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, the Kia Carnival is going to strike the right balance in premium luxury, although not costing as high as luxury car brands. One can say that the Kia Carnival will be a rival to the Toyota Innova Crysta, but it will be positioned higher. And why not, it pretty much deserves some extra bucks than the overprice Toyota Innova Crysta which has been milking the Indian car buyer with this MPV purely based on the reliability card. The Kia Carnival will come with up to 9-seat layout and will also get a premium & ultra-luxurious 7-seater VIP Limousine trim. There is ample of practical storage spots in the Kia Carnival making it the perfect family car for those long drives and vacations. With 200 PS on tap and a 8-speed automatic gearbox, the Kia Carnival MPV is not at all boring to drive around. The highlight of this car is the sliding 2nd row doors which make getting in and out of the car very easy. Another special trick of the 2nd row is the sideways sliding function which allows users to have enough space in between them to feel comfortable. The Kia Carnival comes with features such as LED DRLs, LED headlamps, LED fog lamps, LED tail lamps, chrome alloy wheels, dual sunroofs, 3-zone climate control, wireless charging, connected car features, electric driver seat adjustment, reverse camera, electric tailgate, leather upholstery, etc. When launched, the Kia Carnival is expected to slot in between the Toyota Innova Crysta and the Mercedes-Benz V-Class, and it will offer more space than both those cars. Kia Motors has already managed to create a strong impression in the Indian car market in less than 1 year of operations, ever since they launched the Seltos SUV.
