Kia Motors has revealed the all-new Carnival MPV for the global markets. The all-new fourth-generation Carnival MPV also called Sedona in many international markets is aimed towards progressive young families, offering stylish design, host of features and plenty of space.
The all-new Kia Carnival MPV, dubbed as a ‘Grand Utility Vehicle' is based on the brand's latest mid-size platform and features an SUV-inspired design. The MPV is also said to be roomier, packed with features, refined and more capable than its predecessor.
Being part of the new platform, the fourth-generation Carnival has also grown in size. The MPV now measures 5,155mm in length and 1995mm in width, which is 40mm longer and 10mm wider than its predecessor.
The wheelbase on the new Carnival has also increased by 30mm and now measures 3090mm. Kia has also increased the rear overhang on the fourth-generation MPV by 30mm, allowing additional space for the third-row of passengers, while also offering the best-in-segment luggage space.
Talking about luggage space, the new Kia Carnival boot capacity of 627-litres with all the seats upright. This can further be increased to a massive 2,905-litres with the seats folded down. The Carnival is offered with a wide range of seating configurations, depending on the variant. This includes either a 3-row or 4-row seating arrangement, allowing a maximum of 11 passengers at a time.
The second-row of seats also come with the optional captain chairs, with adjustable armrests, headrests and legrests. There are also tray tables to carry phones and tablets, which can be charged via the USB ports available as well.
Inside, the Kia Carnival also comes with dual digital displays, this includes two 12.3-inch screens; one for the instrument cluster and the other for the infotainment system. There are also a host of other features, along with steering-mounted controls, panoramic sunroof, touch-sensitive buttons on the screen and many more.
Exterior design on the new Carnival has also been completely revamped. The new Kia Carnival comes with a refreshed ‘tiger-nose' grille, along with a completely new set of LED headlamps, LED DRLs, LED fog lamps. It also gets new front and rear bumper, LED taillights connected by an LED light bar, new sliding rear doors and a redesigned C-pillar as well.
For the international markets, Kia will be offering the all-new Carnival with three engine options. This includes the standard 2.2-litre diesel, alongside a 3.5-litre NA V6 petrol and a 3.5-litre turbocharged V6 petrol.
The 2.2-litre diesel produces 199bhp and 404Nm of peak torque. The 3.5-litre MPi petrol produces 268bhp and 332Nm of torque while the top-spec GDi V6 unit churns out 290bhp and 355Nm of torque. All three engines are mated to a standard 8-speed automatic gearbox.
Thoughts On The All-New Kia Carnival MPV
The all-new Kia Carnival is scheduled to go on sale in the Korean markets in Q3 of 2020. The MPV will also be introduced in various other international markets as well, at a slightly later stage. Kia introduced the current Carnival MPV just earlier this year, hence we don't expect the fourth-gen model to come anytime before 2022.
