Curtains and Air Purifier, this is the new Kia Ultra-Luxury Minivan


Called the Carnival Hi Limousine, the new Kia is for the Korean market

It will eventually come to the US  and other markets next year, as the 2022 Sedona.

The 2021 Kia Carnival has been officially unveiled and consumers will have four specification levels to choose from; S, Si, SLi, and Platinum, all of which are available with petrol and diesel engine.

The Carnival Hi Limousine has a plush interior with special features including curtains and an air purifier. It has a lounge-like interior “with everything but the kitchen sink”, as some auto experts say. It is a redesigned version of the van, with a high-roof setup and appears to have extra chrome trim on the outside. But the inside is the real deal: recliner-style second-row seats, privacy curtains for the rear windows, an air purifier, entertainment screens, and even an LED lamp on the ceiling that’s meant to mimic a skylight. There are two cup holders in the central console, they will hold a reusable and disposable coffee cup and between them is a slot useful for holding your phone. There is a wireless phone charging well in front of them with USB, AUX  and 12V socket too.

The shape and style of the new front grille and the squaring up of the rear side windows as well as the sharks fin aerial on the roof mean the Carnival is now looking more like a cool, luxury SUV than a van. The wheelbase has been extended and it has been loaded with a host of new technologies and luxurious features  : 17-inch alloy wheels, a roof rack, solar glass windshield, 8-inch infotainment display with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, 4.2-inch LCD cluster display, six-speaker sound system, keyless entry, and Kia’s full suite of active safety features. Customers  can opt for either a Smartstream 3.5-liter GDI V6 petrol engine producing 216 kW (290 hp) and 355 Nm (261 lb-ft) of torque or a 2.2-liter CRDI diesel with 148 kW (198 hp) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft).
