On the official images, the 4th generation KIA Carnival appeared at the end of July as part of a presentation organized by the automaker. Now, pictures of a real car have appeared on the Web.

KCB publishes live photos of the next generation KIA Carnival minivan. The novelty, by the way, has already managed to set the first record for itself: in just two hours it was possible to place 20 thousand pre-orders for the model. This is the figure that was announced by KIA.

Externally, the minivan began to look like modern crossovers. It has widened wheel arches, plastic protective linings, etc. The radiator grille has become larger and now resembles the current Sorento. The front and rear optics have also been redesigned, while the minivan has grown slightly with the generation change. Its length was increased by 40 mm, its width by 10 mm, and its wheelbase by 30 mm. But the former height has been preserved.

KIA Carnival gets smart electric sliding door. The technology used here can identify the smart key (if it’s close enough) and open the door on its own. This is very convenient when your hands are busy with shopping bags. The useful functions of the smart key do not end there.

A 12.3-inch dashboard of modern multimedia with a touch screen was placed inside the car, but there are practically no traditional buttons. The manufacturer decided to replace them with touchscreens. The second row seats have become more comfortable – they can relieve stress and fight fatigue. Another aspect that has received special attention is safety. The minivan has been equipped with the most advanced driving assistants. In the home market, the new minivan will receive a 2.2-liter diesel engine, as well as a 2.5-liter gasoline engine. Over time, a hybrid may appear on sale. The start of sales of new items at home is scheduled for the 3rd quarter of 2020.
