The current Carnival is similar, but this new generation model also gets a lot of technology on the rear seats. Like two screens have been given in their interior design. While the materials used to make its interiors and the design now gives the feel of a luxury car. It gets luxury features like sliding doors, multi-zone climate control, and leg rests for the rear seats. The new Carnival will also continue to get the 2.2L diesel engine, which is mated to an automatic gearbox as standard.
The company can also display another big product of its Sorento, a 7-seater SUV from Kia. It can give tough competition to the Hyundai Tucson present in the market.
