Next-gen Kia Carnival, Sorento to be showcased at Auto Expo 2023

The fourth-gen Kia Carnival and Sorento will be part of the brand's Auto Expo 2023 line-up.

According to a media report, Kia is set to showcase the next-generation Carnival in India next month. The MPV, along with the Sorento SUV, will be part of Kia’s Auto Expo 2023 line-up.

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.

The new 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.

Globally, the fourth-generation 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.

The Sorento is essentially Kia’s version of the Hyundai Santa Fe. It’s a 7-seater SUV offered with a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol with mild-hybrid tech or as a plug-in hybrid along with a 2.2-litre diesel engine.
