Talking about the next-generation Kia Carnival, the new MPV will come with a significant number of changes and updates over the current model on sale. As seen from the teaser image, the new Carnival (Sedona in international markets) will feature the brand's latest design language.

The side profile consists of a clean design with minimalist styling. This is apart from the single shoulder line running across the length, starting from the LED DRLs and ending at the LED taillights. The side profile also features blacked-out pillars, which further enhances the look of the MPV, giving it a floating roof-like element.

Similarly, Kia Motors also hasn't released any information regarding the powertrain options on the new Carnival MPV. We can expect it to feature an updated version of the current 2.2-litre diesel unit itself. The company could also introduce a petrol-powered Carnival MPV, powered by the 2.0-litre unit from its Sorento sibling. However, these are just assumptions at this point.

The Kia Carnival in India has been witnessing a good response in the Indian market. Hence we can expect the company to bring the next-generation model to India as well. However, with the global launch itself expected in 2021, India will most likely receive the new-gen MPV only by 2022.
