Kia Carnival Review | First Drive | Autocar India
Autocar India
The Toyota Innova may rule the MPV roost, but if you want a more luxurious MPV, it's a long stretch to the Mercedes-Benz V-class. Kia has identified this gap in the market and will soon launch the Kia Carnival. What can you expect from this big people mover? Renuka Kirpalani tells you just that.

      Plastic quality is too cheap which is visible on AC vents in rear, even maruti alto's AC vents comes with better quality of plastic. When you open the upper glove box on passenger side there you get to see the quality of plastic used {{Really Pathetic}}. Fabric quality of seats in lower variants is pathetic considering the amount customer will pay for the luxuriousness. Only top end variant gives you the feeling of premium MPV go for one lower than top end and you'll get to see there nothing so premium about it. Only upside is space great space lot of space ((can play Kabaddi)). Third row is good one but still practically only two adult can sit properly for long journey. Turning radius is very high which will sure make it a headache to maneuver in hectic indian traffic. Angle of approach and departure are low due to which it will be more prone to damages from both front and rear end especially on indian road. Overall Good effort but could have been better!!!!


      Where there is no Honda odyssey or Toyota Sienna or Chrysler Pacifica, Kia Sedona aka Kia Carnival is a leader in its own segment. It can never be compared to Toyota Innova, as Toyota Sienna is it's real competitor.

    CBDT India: India's crorepati count up at 81,000; expands 68% in 3 years Auto sales maybe down because of fall in lower/medium segment consumption, but KIA has seen and will capture the vacant space: rich joint families This car will be a huge hit

    This car is good on the inside and the outside. But being honest it's just not worth on Indian roads.

    Great launch.. Carnival Limousine (the top variant) is really exciting me.. But for such a big vehicle, the 360-view camera shouldn't have been left out, a feature offered in the Carnival/Sedona globally.. Also, why is the seat ventilation missed out in the passenger front seat? Kia should add these features, especially in the top-end Limousine vatiant, as people won't mind that much extra price for the same..

    It looks quite a bit promising MPV considering the dimensions of car and very long list of features. But when fully loaded, it's durability and performance might be questionable having front wheel drive system and monocoque chassis. As Toyota Innova still rules the indian roads with RWD system and ladder frame chassis.

  • SokkaNaathan

    It's not worth for 30 lakhs. Just showing something magic. It's totally waste. Just go for Toyota for this.

    Originally it was planned to launch in 18-22 lakh mark , seems all bloggers are pushing for 30-35 lakh while Kia thought of adding LUXURY word to the vehicle and made it 30+ vehicle where adding a few more grands will get you a 🌟 Will be a huge faliure against the hype which is being created , Kia is a cheaper sibling of Hyundai after all and all efforts are made to make it bigger then parent company and compare it with Toyota which is known for there amazing engineering Also it is missing all the modern gadgets that are available in cheaper seltos

    KIA Carnival is just massive in proportions and is fully loaded. This company has just entered the Indian market and has got such a name in manufacturing good and slightly affordable cars with luxury features in it. But it is an offset for the Indian car companies like Tata which should now start manufacturing of fully loaded cars with premium features in it and still make it affordable for Indian consumers.

    Nice car , but for limousine version KIA should have given 6 seat option with all captain seats instead of last row bench seats...

    Now we know why car markets were down few months back. Indian buying power or mindset moved to big cars. Willing to spend. Indian car manufacturers except mahindra failed to understand. When nano failed first bell rang for small cars

    Looks like a luxury mommy mobile. But hey, Innova now has competition if this car is priced properly. Innova ruled this class for years. Competition is always welcome

    It is sold as Kia Sedona in the US which is equipped with a 3.3 litre V6 engine putting out more horsepower and torque for much less price. Honda odyssey and Toyota Sienna leads the MPV segment in the US by providing more passenger as well as storage space compared to the Sedona/Carnival.

  • Sreehari Madhu

    At that price range it should be competing with the Toyota Fortuner and not Crysta.
