  • Carnival Interior

    The new Kia Carnival is a big MPV and thanks to its massive proportions, it has acres of space inside the cabin. Step inside the cabin and you can feel how premium the Carnival is. The Kia Carnival is available with multiple seating configurations which include a seven-, eight-, and a nine-seater layout. The multiple seating layouts configuration of the Carnival appeals to a wide array of buyers ranging from five-star hotels to luxury taxi service providers and even private customers who want to go touring in a luxury van. The dashboard of the Carnival looks a bit outdated if we compare it with Kia’s own vehicles like the Seltos and Sonet, which are priced much lesser than it. However, it gets all the usable features one would expect and even more.

    The Kia Carnival gets an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity along with an in-built navigation system.

  • Carnival Engine Performance

    The Kia Carnival is powered by a BS6 compliant 2.2-litre diesel engine. This oil burner churns out a massive 200 PS of maximum power at 3800 RPM and a colossal 440 Nm of peak torque between 1500-2750 RPM. The engine comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Kia Carnival is the most powerful MPV currently on sale in the Indian market and the 200 PS of power is delivered in a smooth linear manner with terrific NVH levels inside the cabin. However, don’t expect great acceleration runs from this MPV because at the end of the day, it’s a people mover. The Carnival weighs over 2.2 tonnes and the engine feels quite dull at lower RPMs.

    However, the mid-range performance of the potent 2.2-litre diesel mill of the Kia Carnival will truly impress you. The Carnival offers a very strong mid-range performance and this MPV pulls effortlessly, thanks to the colossal amount of twisting force on offer. As you would expect from an MPV, the top-end performance of the Carnival isn’t that great at all. But, truth be told, the Kia Carnival is an excellent mile muncher and one can easily cruise at speeds of 80-110 kmph effortlessly. The India-spec Kia Carnival has an ARAI claimed mileage of 13.7 kmpl.

  • Carnival Ride & Handling

    Kia claims that the Kia Carnival has been tuned for Indian road conditions and we do agree that as this luxury people mover offers a great ride quality.

So, the driver gets a nice view of what’s around thanks to the Carnival’s massive windows and SUV-like stance. The Carnival gets a chunky steering wheel. However, what’s the good thing about it is that it doesn’t feel vague at all. 

    The steering wheel of the Carnival feels light at city speeds which helps to manoeuvre this 2.2 tonne MPV easily inside the city while on the highways, it weighs up very well and offers good feedback even at triple-digit speeds. However, it isn’t meant for hard cornering or drifting as at the end of the day, it’s an MPV. Talking about ride comfort, the Carnival offers a very smooth ride quality and it glides over even rough patches of roads. The superb ride quality of the MPV is complemented by its phenomenal seats which together blend and offer a great experience that very few other cars in India do.
