Kia has finally fully declassified the 2021 Carnival MPV. With the generation change, the car is transferred to a new mid-size platform, as a result of which it has become 40 mm longer. This makes the interior space even more comfortable. In addition, the Kia Carnival will be available with a three- or four-seat row configuration, meaning the cabin can accommodate from seven to eleven people.

The interior has got a 12.3-inch digital cockpit and an infotainment system with a similar 12.3-inch touchscreen, which are installed under a single glass. The latter supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as Kia Live. The key feature of the new Carnival is the «rear passenger view» function.
