The Kia Carnival has remained in the highlights for quite some time now and was spotted during its final testing very recently. Some dealerships have even started accepting pre-bookings.

As known, the Kia Carnival will be made available in multiple seating configurations, which would make it cater to a large variety of customers. The presence of multiple seating variants would help the Carnival achieve a range of price points.

The source report claims that the entry-level Kia Carnival would be a nine-seater. Above it, there'll be an eight-seat version. The remaining two trims will be positioned even higher, and come in an even more comfort-oriented, 7-seat version. These trims will be quite expensive and stretch beyond the INR 30 lakh (ex-showroom) price mark.

The top-of-the-range seven-seater Kia Carnival will be kitted with premium features such as the Nappa leather upholstery, a rear-seat entertainment package which includes two 10.1-inch screens for the second row, 18-inch alloys, a dual-pane sunroof, powered tailgate, keyless entry and go, wireless charging, a power-adjustable and ventilated driver’s seat, three-zone climate control and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

The Kia Carnival will be plonked with a 2.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine that delivers 202 PS of maximum power and 441 Nm of maximum torque in India. Internationally, this engine can be had with a 6-speed MT or an 8-speed AT, but in India, it will be offered with only the latter.
