    Kia Carnival Summary

    The Kia Grand Carnival is the second product under consideration for the Indian market. The company had revealed its plans to launch a new car in India in every six - nine months and the Grand Carnival is expected to be launched in the first half of 2020. Also known as the Kia Sedona in some global markets, the Grand Carnival is available in seven, eight and eleven-seat configurations.

    In India, the luxury MPV is expected to be powered by a 2.2-litre CRDi diesel motor that makes 202bhp and 441Nm and will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Internationally, it also gets a 3.3-litre V6 petrol engine; however, the chances of this powertrain coming to our shores are bleak. Kia Motors India is considering a price of around Rs 25 lakhs (ex-showroom) for the Grand Carnival.

    CarWale's Take

    • Good Things
      • Premium people mover
      • Spacious interiors       
      • Impressive ride quality
    • Could be Better
      • Cumbersome to drive in city
      • Unimpressive steering feel
      • Brakes could do with more bite 

    Carnival Verdict

    The Kia Carnival is a premium people mover that combines imposing street presence with rugged looks, and is feature-loaded too. It is ideal for buyers looking to upgrade from the Toyota Innova Crysta, without breaking the bank. And that, combined with its spacious interiors and impressive ride quality, ticks all the right boxes.

    Carnival Review

    Kia Motors launched the Carnival in India to offer a luxurious yet practical MPV for our market. It's powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine with power rated at 197bhp and 440Nm of torque. This VGT motor comes mated to an eight-speed ‘sportsmatic’ transmission. Looking at this MPV's mammoth-like proportions, a prospective buyer knows he/she might not be able to duplicate its ARAI figures of 13.9kmpl in the real world. And, it's still quite understandable if one wants a good fuel economy from his/her vehicle with fuel costs rising again and again. For letting you know how much fuel economy the Kia Carnival gives in actual driving conditions, here's our report from its fuel efficiency tests.

    Introduction

    Kia Motors launched the Carnival in India to offer a luxurious yet practical MPV for our market. It's powered by a 2.2-litre diesel engine with power rated at 197bhp and 440Nm of torque. This VGT motor comes mated to an eight-speed ‘sportsmatic’ transmission.

    Left Front Three Quarter

    Looking at this MPV's mammoth-like proportions, a prospective buyer knows he/she might not be able to duplicate its ARAI figures of 13.9kmpl in the real world. And, it's still quite understandable if one wants a good fuel economy from his/her vehicle with fuel costs rising again and again. To let you know how much fuel economy the Kia Carnival gives in actual driving conditions, here's our report from its fuel efficiency tests.

    City Fuel Economy

    This top-spec Limousine 7 Seater trim of the Carnival delivered a fuel efficiency of 9.2kmpl within the city. This isn't a bad figure at all considering all factors including a 2.2 ton mammoth making its way out through all the traffic congestion in the city.

    Highway Fuel Economy

    left rear three quarter

    Even out on the highway, the Carnival posted a respectable fuel efficiency as this mile-muncher covered 12.82km for every litre of fuel that it consumed. That said, achieving this figure again might be difficult with all passengers and a full load. 

    Conclusion

    Right Front Three Quarter

    We determine how much fuel a car consumes by doing a tank-to-tank review and over a pre-decided route for all vehicles we test. The same was done here and the Carnival with a fuel tank capacity of 60 litres enables it to put up a range of 661km. This, however, may vary from owner to owner depending on different driving conditions and many other parameters. Nevertheless, if a comprehensive evaluation test of this MPV interests you, you can read about it by clicking here.
