Recently, a video which shows a Kia Carnival experience a vertical crash test has been released on the Internet. Let’s see what are the results.
The global-spec 2016 Kia Carnival has achieved a 5-star rating in the ANCAP crash test. Even the one on sale in India bears a strong resemblance to the global one with the only differences in the motors and the gearbox. Recently, a video which shows a Kia Carnival going through a vertical crash test has been released. Let's have a look-
As soon as the wheels of the MPV touch the surface, the MPV is released for testing. The speed at the time of the impact is 56 kmph which is technically lower than the regular crash test. All the parts of the car prove to be well-built since the damage is just limited to the bonnet. The airbags have been floated in time.
The India-spec model borrows the platform with some distinctions in design, features and motors. The MPV is equipped with a long list of features. Some of the most outstanding ones include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and 10-inch touchscreen display for middle-seat-row entertainment, three-zone temperature control and a dual-panel sunroof. Like the Kia Seltos, the Carnival is equipped with Kia’s UVO connected car technology. The MPV keeps under its hood a BS6-compliant 2.2-litre oil burner which can generate 200 PS against 440 Nm and is paired with an 8-speed AT unit.
The MPV is offered in three variants: Premium, Prestige and Limousine with different seating layouts of seven, eight and nine seats, respectively. Priced in the range from INR 24.95 lakh to INR 33.95 lakh, the Kia Carnival does not have any direct competitors in the Indian auto market. The MPV is positioned between the Toyota Innova Crysta and the Toyota Vellfire and Mercedes-Benz V-Class.
