Re-writing the People Mover rules.

The all-new Carnival is quite unlike any car we’ve crafted before. Fusing SUV-inspired design with an unstoppable attitude, the Carnival uses progressive styling that boasts an aesthetic like no other.

Featuring a luxurious interior for eight, lavishly equipped with next-generation Kia technology, the Carnival lets you and your passengers travel in grand comfort and style. We didn't just build a People Mover. We upgraded it to a Grand Utility Vehicle.

A design revolution.

Game face on

Athletic body lines

Big is bold

Sculpted rear design


One look at the athletic shape of the Carnival and you know it will never back down. The strong Tiger nose grille and wide stance give it a commanding presence. While the geometrical contoured LED headlights create a more aggressive finish.


Prominent SUV-like wheel arches and an athletic shoulder line combine with a sharp roofline with stylish roof rails that presents spacious accommodations to front and rear passengers.


Beauty is in the detail. The available 19” Black Alloy Wheels on the Platinum grade take the visual appeal of the Carnival to the next level.


A slim rear harmoniously blends the rear LED combination lights, while the rear wipers remain hidden until in use, giving the rear a clean and modern impression.

Luxury on a grander scale.

Safe Exit Warning & Safe Exit Assist*


Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist (BCA) combines Blind Spot Detection (BSD) with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) to help prevent the vehicle from colliding into vehicle in the adjacent lane or coming from behind when driver switches lanes.


Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) uses the front view camera and front radar to detect vehicles, pedestrians & cyclists in front of the vehicle. If it detects a possible collision the system warns the driver with audio & visual alerts and automatically engages the brakes to help prevent or minimise the effects of collision.

Junction Assist detects oncoming cars when turning right at an intersection and applies the brakes if detecting a possible collision.


Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) warns the driver with audio & visual alerts when detecting vehicles approaching from either side of the Carnival when reversing.

Rear Cross-traffic Collision Avoidance Assist (RCCA) combines alerts from the RCTA system with braking to help prevent possible collisions.

RCTA available on all grades.

If passengers attempt to open the power sliding door while there is an approaching vehicle, Safe Exit Assist (SEA) will ensure the power sliding doors do not open.
