Kia Unmasks the 2021 Carnival MPV

Kia has revealed first images of the new, fourth generation Carnival. The brand’s flagship MPV, the 2021 Carnival is designed to appeal to young families thanks to its combination of innovation, flexibility, and style.

Dubbed a ‘Grand Utility Vehicle’, the new model boasts a design evolution for the Carnival. It adds a strong sense of solidity along with SUV-inspired design elements. The fourth-generation model features a shorter front overhang, with the base of the A-pillar moved backwards to create a longer hood. Its increased wheelbase also contributes to greater space throughout the cabin, while giving the car a longer, slightly more athletic silhouette.

 A simple yet bold character line which runs along the length of the car, linking the front and rear lamps. Beneath this clear line, the Carnival features a more prominent sense of volume to its bodywork, with bold wheel arches and sharp lines along the body giving it a more sculpted appearance.

The new model features a unique ‘island roof’ design, with blacked-out A- and B-pillars supporting the body-colored roof. From the side, one of the new car’s stand-out features is an eye-catching new C-pillar signature design, inspired by that of the new Sorento.

The chrome fin, which wraps beneath the tapered rear windows and extends towards the tailgate, is finished with a subtle diamond pattern that is also reflected throughout the inside of the car.

Kia will be revealing more details about the all-new Carnival soon. It will go on sale in South Korea by the third quarter of 2020 with global markets to follow thereafter.
