The video also shows that the impact was hard enough for the airbags to deploy. Thankfully no one was injured in the process, including the motorcycle that was parked close by.

The showroom was quick to react and dispatched the damaged Kia Carnival to the dealership owned workshop for repairs that are expected to be on the expensive side.

The new Carnival's bonnet, the bumper, and the side panels have taken maximum damage. In addition, coolant or water from the wiper water reservoir appears to have leaked. Add to that other parts that have been damaged by the accident, and parts that need to be replaced on the inside.

The owner will have to wait for a while before he can enjoy his new car. However the scar of crashing a brand new car that costs between Rs 24.95 lakh and Rs 33.95 lakh (ex-showroom) will linger around for the foreseeable future.

Thoughts About An Owner Crashing A Kia Carnival While In The Process Of Taking Delivery

We think the owner of this Kia Carnival has never driven an automatic. The first thing one usually does is hit the brakes when driving an automatic transmission. Someone who isn't used to it looks for the clutch. That's what we think happened here. While we understand the excitement of experiencing taking delivery of a new car, one must always be aware of a situation and of one's surroundings.
