The Kia Grand Carnival MPV has been spotted in Gurgaon, which suggests that Kia might be considering the model for India.

The Grand Carnival was showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo along with other cars from Kia's global line up. It measures 5,115 mm in overall length, 1,985 mm in width and 1,755 mm in height, while its wheelbase is 3,060 mm. In the international market, this MPV is offered in 7, 8 and 11 seat configurations. 

The Grand Carnival MPV has a large chrome grille up front flanked by sweptback projector headlights. The front bumper has chrome trim and an integrated skid plate as well as circular fog lamps. Unlike most MPVs in India, the Grand Carnival comes with sliding rear doors. It gets dual-tone interiors with a 3-spoke multi-functional steering wheel and a twin-dial instrument cluster.

Globally, the Grand Carnival is offered with a 3.3-litre petrol and a 2.2-litre diesel engine. The India-spec Grand Carnival is expected to get the latter. This 4-cylinder diesel engine produces 199 BHP @ 3,800 rpm and 441 Nm @ 1,750-2,750 rpm and comes mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Along with the Grand Carnival, the Stonic compact SUV is also being evaluated for India.
