Here are the real-life images of the fourth-gen 2021 Kia Carnival. The all-new model is expected to hit the global markets in the coming months.

Korean automaker Kia recently unveiled the upcoming 2021 Carnival globally. The all-new premium MPV is likely to go on sale in the global market by the end of this year, whereas the India launch is expected somewhere next year. Here, we have a fresh set of real-life images of the MPV, and it looks wonderful from every angle. The carmaker calls the new MPV ‘Grand Utility Vehicle’, which is quite obvious from its dimensions and looks. The new-gen Carnival is inspired by Kia’s big SUVs. The Carnival in the pictures you see here are in black colour shade, and it looks eye-catching to say the least.

The front fascia of the premium MPV features Kia’s Tiger Nose grille, which is blacked-out in this specific model. The grille is connected to LED headlamps and the lower part of the MPV sports silver accents with faux skid plate. In the fourth-gen Kia Carnival, the carmaker has shortened the overhang upfront and also customized the position of A-pillar for a longer hood. The side profile of the new premium MPV is quite long but doesn’t look dull in the real-life images. This specific model gets gunmetal grey alloy wheels. The side profile also gets chrome finished C-pillar and D-pillar to make the MPV look more appealing.

The rear fascia of the car gets connected LED taillights with a bigger reflector in the middle. Furthermore, the lower part of the bumper features parking lights along with faux skid plate. The automaker has not revealed the interiors of the all-new Kia Carnival, but we expect it to be more premium and luxurious than that of the ongoing model.

Globally, Kia Carnival is powered by a 2.2-litre diesel and 2.5-litre petrol engine, the new-gen model is likely to be propelled by the same powertrain options. The former puts out power and torque outputs of 200 PS and 440 Nm, while the latter develops 280 PS of peak power. The India-spec Kia Carnival is only offered with a diesel power plant. Transmission duties are done by an 8-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
