Kia Carnival luxury MPV is the second upcoming product from the Korean carmaker in India. Scheduled to launch in January 2020, the Carnival will take on head-to-head against the Mercedes-Benz V Class and the upcoming Toyota Vellfire. Its prices are likely to start from Rs 25 lakh to go up to Rs 32 lakh (ex-showroom).
Recently, the Kia Carnival was spotted featuring a sunroof and TC number plates. Similar to the global model, the India-spec version is likely to come with dual panel electric sunroof – one for the driver side and one for the 2nd row seats occupants. The Kia Carnival MPV will be offered in three seating layout options – 6-seats, 7-seats and 8-seats.
The carmaker says that the Kia Carnival is “sheer extravagance” loaded with several advanced features including one touch power sliding door, VIP seats with rear seat entertainment, smart power tailgate, leather interiors, electrical adjustable front seats, a touchscreen infotainment system with the latest smartphone connectivity and more.
