Auto Expo 2023: Kia KA4 (4th-gen Carnival) unveiled

In India, the next-gen Carnival is likely to be offered with a 2.2L diesel engine.

Kia has showcased the next-generation Carnival at the ongoing Auto Expo 2023. The MPV is likely to be launched in India later this year.

The fourth-generation Kia Carnival made its global debut in August 2020. The new MPV is larger than the model currently sold in India. It is available in 3-row or 4-row seating configurations and can accommodate up to 11 passengers.

Inside, the Carnival has a dual display that includes a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment and a similarly sized digital instrument cluster. The infotainment and climate control functions can be controlled using touch-sensitive buttons on the dashboard.

In the international market, the new Carnival is offered with 3 engine options. These include a 3.5-litre GDi V6 petrol, a 3.5-litre MPi V6 petrol and a 2.2-litre diesel engine. An 8-speed automatic transmission is offered as standard across all variants.
