The fourth-generation Kia Carnival has arrived in markets within the Middle East and Africa (MEA). Based on Kia’s new mid-size platform, the Carnival offers owners three or four-row seating configurations, with room for seven, eight, or 11 occupants.
Depending on local specifications, the Carnival is available with a choice of up to three new engines - all paired as standard with eight-speed automatic transmissions. The new Carnival boasts a range of passive and active safety and driver assistance systems, including Kia’s advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and is fitted with up to seven airbags, Kia’s innovative Multi-Collision Brake system, Kia’s Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) and Electronic Stability Control. The bodyshell is comprised of different grades of Advanced High-Strength Steel, maximising rigidity while keeping body weight low to reduce road vibrations and enhance occupant safety in the event of a collision.
With a comprehensive array of sound-reducing and insulating measures, the new NVH features ensure the new model is one of the quietest and most refined on the road.
