The Indian MPV market is about to get a lot more interesting. Kia’s popular Carnival is making a comeback, and it’s been spotted in India without any camouflage, giving us a sneak peek at its impressive new design.

A Bold New Look

The fourth-generation Carnival isn’t holding back on style. The front end is upright and bold, with a wide grille sporting chrome accents. The headlights are now vertical LEDs, framed by L-shaped LED daytime running lights. A faux skid plate adds a touch of ruggedness to the overall look.

Along the sides, you’ll notice sleek 18-inch alloy wheels and convenient sliding doors for easy access to the second and third rows. The rear continues the L-shaped lighting theme, with taillights connected by a stylish LED light bar.

Luxurious Interior and High-Tech Features

While the interior hasn’t been fully revealed, expect it to be similar to the international version. Think minimalist design, dual 12.3-inch screens for infotainment and driver information, and even the possibility of a massive 14.6-inch entertainment system for second-row passengers. Expect features like ventilated and heated seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a premium sound system to elevate the passenger experience.

Safety is also a priority, with the international model boasting 8 airbags and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) like adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist. We’re hoping these features make it to the Indian version as well.

Familiar Power, But Greener

Under the hood, Kia is likely to stick with the tried-and-tested 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine from the previous generation. Of course, it’ll be updated to meet India’s stricter BS6 emission standards.

The Competition Heats Up

The Innova HyCross has been enjoying its time as the top dog in the premium MPV segment, but the new Carnival is ready to give it a run for its money. With its striking design, luxurious features, and potential for advanced safety technology, it could be a compelling alternative.

What’s Next?

We’re still waiting for Kia to officially announce the Carnival’s launch date and pricing. But with the car already spotted without camouflage, it’s clear that the launch is just around the corner. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting new MPV!
