Well known for its spacious cabin and innovation, the Kia Carnival has been a popular MPV ideal for family around the world including Brunei Darussalam.

The all new Kia Carnival continues to progress with a longer wheel base and wider body which translates to more space, providing ideal comfort for family travel.

Grand Motors Sdn Bhd, the exclusive distributor of Kia vehicles in the country, will unveil the all new Carnival at the Kia Showroom in Beribi on Friday.

The Carnival now has more interior room for passengers and offers three row seating configurations to accommodate up to eight passengers. Its seven seater configuration boasts Kia’s reclining captain’s chairs for second row occupants with adjustable backseats, armrest and leg rests giving passengers a comfortable business class seating for long journeys.

It features a shorter front with the base of the A-pillar moved back to create a longer hood. Its increased wheelbase also contributes to greater space throughout the cabin while giving the car a longer and slightly more athletic silhouette.

It also features a new tiger face extending across the width of the vehicle giving it an attractive distinct look. The interior represents an increase in quality and design over its predecessor. The futuristic new cabin boasts a high tech ambiance with the wide wrap around dashboard with cutting edge features.

The Carnival features a 4.2-inch TFT-LCD digital driver instrument cluster and 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system supporting the latest phone connectivity of Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

A premium Bose surround sound system was added which combines the optimally tuned 12 high performance speakers including a subwoofer based on Bose’s unique sound technology. A shift wire dial transmission at the base of the centre console expresses the new Carnival’s sense of technology and modernity.

The new Kia Carnival comes in petrol or diesel engines and under each engine systems, customers have the option of four different variants.
