Instead of bringing in the all-new generation model of the Carnival which has already gone for sale in global markets, Kia has chosen to update the current Indian-spec model with a list of tweaks. The exterior of the Carnival now wears the new Kia logos at front and rear, with a new set of 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels offered as standard across the range.

The biggest change to the new Kia Carnival happens to be the inclusion of a new top-end Limousine variant to the lineup, which now sees a few additional features making their way in the cabin. This variant gets an electronic parking brake, ventilated driver’s seat with 10-way power adjustments, leather upholstery, 8-speaker Harman Kardon music system, premium wood garnish, tyre pressure monitoring system and dual 10.1-inch entertainment screens for rear passengers.

Interestingly, the Limousine variant, which was the erstwhile top-end variant, now comes with lesser features than before. The variant now misses out on dual 10.1-inch entertainment screens, leather-wrapped gear lever and steering wheel and powered and ventilated driver’s seat. However, this variant now comes with a single 10.1-inch rear-seat entertainment screen, captain seats in second row with extendable leg support and an auto-dimming internal rearview mirror. In addition to this, the feature of leather seats is now standard across the range barring the entry-level Premium variant.

The Kia Carnival continues to get other features like dual pane sunroofs, LED projector headlamps LED fog lamps, electric tailgate, power sliding rear doors, three-zone automatic climate control, cruise control and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
