Kia’s upcoming Innova Rival: All the details.

With its new generation of technology and enhanced design, Kia intends to bring its luxury MPV, the Carnival, back to the Indian market to compete fiercely with its rivals.

New Kia Carnival

It is anticipated that Kia Carnival will receive a generational upgrade this year for the Indian market in order to rival other competitors in the segment and give buyers a new, premium MPV alternative.

Exterior Design:

The upcoming India-spec Carnival will have new front and rear fascias along with comparable style cues to the fourth-generation model sold in international countries. Expect a redesigned front grille and a new, crisp, vertically oriented projector arrangement at the front that is linked to a thin LED bar close to the bonnet. Together with similar powered sliding rear doors, the upcoming carnival’s side profile may include a new, larger alloy design that will enhance its attractiveness and class. Its boxy shape and clean design will give it the appearance of a premium MPV from the side. A longer design than the current generation model is anticipated for the upcoming Carnival.

Interior Styling:

The interior is probably going to have a redesigned dashboard with a digital cockpit experience that places a larger touchscreen infotainment system in the middle, a new digital instrument cluster, and a steering wheel with mounted controls. It also has opulent seating with leatherette upholstery, offering a lounge experience and a variety of seating arrangement options. It might come with a dual sunroof package, powered seats with memory for the back seats, and a dual rear screen for the back seats, just like the earlier model. Along with a host of other safety and connectivity features, the new Carnival will also have Level 2 ADAS technology, providing an exceptional driving experience.


Under the hood, the upcoming Kia Carnival is probably going to have the same 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine that produces 197 horsepower and 440 Nm of peak torque when paired with an 8-speed automated gearbox. For this MPV, a new petrol engine or a petrol-hybrid powertrain may be introduced, similar to the international models.
