By design, the roof of the Grand Carnival does not slope to the tailgate, and this allows third row passengers more headroom.

With stand-up seats for the second row, third row passengers can climb in and out of the MPV with ease.

Rear luggage room is 359 litres, and can be expanded to 2,718 litres with the seats folded.
