    2021 Kia Carnival: what’s new?

    On the exterior, the 2021 Carnival gets Kia’s new logo which was revealed earlier this year, and all variants of the Carnival are also now equipped with 18-inch crystal cut alloy wheels.

     Kia has introduced a new top-spec Limousine Plus variant to the Carnival’s line-up which is loaded with features like an 8-speaker Harman Kardon premium sound system, an electronic parking brake, 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with seat ventilation, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear lever, premium wood garnish inside, two 10.1-inch rear seat entertainment screens and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

    Kia has also revised the Limousine variant with a single 10.1-inch rear seat entertainment screen and an auto-dimming internal rear-view mirror. However, the outgoing Limousine variant was also equipped with dual rear screens, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob and a powered and ventilated driver's seat, all of which are now reserved for the top-spec Limousine Plus variant.

    Kia also stated that premium leatherette seats are now available on the Prestige, Limousine and Limousine Plus trims, with the latter two getting captain seats in the second-row with extendable leg support.

    Other than that, the higher-spec Kia Carnival continues to feature LED projector headlamps, ice-cube LED fog lamps, a powered tailgate, a dual-pane sunroof, power-sliding doors, three-zone automatic climate control, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility and cruise control. Standard safety equipment on the Carnival includes dual airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child-seat mounts, rear parking sensors and a rear camera.
