Kia India had unveiled the new KA4 (fourth-gen kia carnival) at the Auto Expo 2023. Over two years after its debut. Compared to the current Carnival on sale in India, the fourth-gen model is bigger with SUV like styling, more premium and loaded with a host of new and advance tech. The Kia KA4 could be available in seven, eight, and nine seat configurations. Compared to the current-gen Kia Carnival, the new-gen KA4 adopts an SUV- stance with a much sharper design. Upfront, there is a characteristic Kia fascia which is also seen on many international SUVs like the Palisade and Sorento. In profile, there are the familiar sliding rear doors with electric functions. On the inside, the KA4 offers a characteristic Kia cabin with a floating screen atop the dashboard and an all-digital driver’s display. The rest of the cabin uses familiar elements seen on Kia models like the Seltos and Carens. In terms of features, it is expected to offer a dual sunroof, wireless charging, hands-free powered tailgate, hands-free power sliding doors, power and ventilated front seats, three-zone, and a 12-speaker Bose-sourced music system. Moreover, the new KA4 is expected to offer ADAS as well. In terms of powertrain, the new-gen Carnival in the international market is powered by a 3.5-litre V6 petrol engine producing 290 bhp and 355Nm and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the India-spec KA4 is expected to continue with the older 2.2-litre diesel engine developing around 200 bhp and 440Nm and paired to an eight-speed automatic.
