SEOUL: Kia Motors on Monday revealed the interiors of the 2021 Carnival MPV, which is due by the end of the year. Like its predecessor, the Carnival hosts significant levels of space for passengers in all rows. Kia has created a greater sense of roominess inside, combined with a renewed sense of modernity and style. The new Carnival provides passengers in all rows with more space. The interior of the fourth-generation Carnival represents an increase in quality and design over its predecessor, with a new cabin. The dashboard integrates dual-screen infotainment technologies with haptic touch controls, placing the driver in command of the cockpit. Kia’s latest 12.3-inch digital driver instrument cluster and 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment and navigation system also feature in the new Carnival. The fourth-generation Carnival benefits from a longer wheelbase, a longer rear overhang, and a wider body. The result is more interior space for passengers in all three or four rows. Depending on the market, the Carnival offers owners three- or four-row seating configurations, with space for 7, 9, or 11 occupants in total. In its 7-seat configuration, the Carnival offers Kia’s reclining ‘captain’s chairs’ for second-row occupants, with adjustable backrests, armrests, and leg rests providing ‘business class’ seating for comfort on long journeys. Second-row occupants have access to back-of-seat USB chargers, storage nets for mobile devices, and a new storage drawer in the base of the rear console, with a tray for storing tablets or phones above a larger storage area. The new Kia Carnival is due-on-sale in South Korea later in 2020, followed by sales in Kia’s international markets.
