New-Gen Kia Carnival
The fourth generation Kia Carnival MPV looks bolder and it now comes with a more SUV-ish design. The premium MPV now features a shorter front overhang, with the base of the A-pillar moved backwards to create a longer hood.
The new Carnival comes with a ?island roof' design, with blacked-out A- and B-pillars supporting the body-colored roof. From the side, one of the new car's stand-out features is an eye-catching new C-pillar signature design, inspired by that of the new Sorento.
The Carnival's headlamps and LED daytime running lights (DRLs) form a unique light signature. The high-beam lamps are integrated into the corner of the tiger-nose grille, with the low-beam lamps sitting separately, at the outer edges of the front of the car.
At the rear, the Carnival boasts a wide, distinctive new design which uses full-width lines. Its increased wheelbase also contributes to greater space throughout the cabin, while giving the car a longer, slightly more SUV-like silhouette. The Carnival is finished off with a metallic lower skid plate, to further enhance the SUV-inspired design.
Earlier in June, Kia gave us a glimpse of the new Carnival with a teaser sketch, highlighting some of the new design elements. The new Kia Carnival will first go on sale in South Korea in the third quarter of 2020, while other market, including India, will get it later in 2021.
