Kia Motors Release First Official Teaser Video Of The Upcoming Carnival MPV: Here Are The Details

Kia Motors India is all set to bring in its second product in the Indian market, the Carnival MPV. The new Kia Carnival MPV is expected to go on sale sometime in January 2020. Ahead of its launch, the company has released the first official teaser video of the upcoming MPV for India.

The Carnival MPV is already on sale in the international market. However, Kia will offer the Carnival with a number of India-specific styling and features as well. The MPV will be assembled in India at its Anantapur plant, Andhra Pradesh; imported as a CKD (Completely Knocked Down) unit.

This will allow Kia Motors to price the Carnival MPV competitively in the Indian market, with an expected price range of around Rs 30 lakh, ex-showroom. Once launched, the Kia Carnival will be a premium MPV offering, positioned a segment above the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, Toyota Innova Crysta. It will, however, be priced lower than the likes of other premium MPVs, such as the Mercedes-Benz V-Class and the Toyota Vellfire.

Thoughts On The Kia Carnival MPV

The Kia Carnival is a premium offering from the brand in the Indian market. After the success of the Seltos in the country, the Kia Carnival MPV is not aimed towards providing volume sales to the company, but rather helping the brand establish itself as a premium brand in the Indian market.
