Kia said the Carnival is also strong on safety.

Both variants feature seven airbags, anti-lock braking system, electronic stability control, traction control system, multi-collision brake control, Isofix child restraint anchor points and top tethers as well as hill-start assist control.

The Carnival also comes equipped with newly added blind-spot view monitor, while the other advanced safety features remain unchanged.

The engine produces 199hp at 3,800rpm and 440Nm of torque from just 1,750 – 2,750rpm, offering smooth, linear acceleration.
