Kia has officially revealed the new-gen Carnival globally. The all-new Carnival will be the fourth-gen model of the car.
Korean automaker Kia launched its second product in the Indian market a few months back in the form of the Carnival. The premium MPV is being lapped up by the high-end MPV buyers of our country. The Carnival offered in our market is the third-gen model of the car and was first showcased to the masses back in 2015. And, after 5 years of its debut, the automaker has now revealed the fourth-gen model. It employs a bunch of new updates to its design with increased dimensions. Kia has dubbed the all-new MPV as the ‘Grand Utility Vehicle’. Talking about its design, the MPV now features SUV elements such as skid plates at the front and rear, roof rails and blacked-out cladding on the bumpers.

Moreover, the lines and creases are much sharper than that of the outgoing model. The bonnet of the car now gets a high-set piece of sheet metal along with a bolder-looking tiger-nose grille. Furthermore, the grille now features a new pattern. The headlamp cluster looks quite aggressive. It employs a new pattern of LED DRLs, which has been never seen on any Kia car till now. Moving towards the side, it gets a new set of 19-inch alloy wheels. They do gel up pretty well with the muscular look of the MPV. It continues to feature electric side rear doors, but the C-pillar is now finished in chrome which enhances the premium quotient of the car. In comparison to the ongoing model, the all-new version of the MPV gets a very-modern looking rear fascia.
It is expected to be powered by a petrol and diesel engine
It features new sleeker LED taillamps with a light bar, redesigned tailgate and sporty looking spoiler. The automaker has not unveiled the interior details of the car, but one can expect the cabin of the new-gen Kia Carnival to be more premium and upmarket. The upcoming model is expected to be powered by a 3.3-litre GDi V6 gasoline engine and a 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel motor. The new-gen Carnival is likely to hit the Indian shores by 2022.
