The designers of the brand has borrowed some “chips” from the world of crossovers, to draw a Grand Utility Vehicle.
Finally from turning the minivan in the SUV, the company has kept. However, the appearance of the Kia Carnival with the fourth generation has changed markedly: as officially stated, this was done in order to ensure the Carnival a more effective, stylish and even brutal positioning.
Specific figures manufacturer yet does not. It is known that van extended wheelbase, shortened front overhang and moved the a-pillars back a little, providing a dynamic profile. The “face” of Carnival completely redesigned – came here, for example, a new optics with led rollicking strokes and grille with an unusual filling.
Another original decision – the so-called effect of “floating roof”. It is achieved by dimming of all pillars, with the exception of separating the cabin from the trunk, which, in turn, underlined by chrome fins. Lining decorated with special pattern which promised to repeat in the interior of a minivan – but the photos of the Carnival saloon has not yet been published.
Apparently “all terrain” image of the model, which Kia is now preferred to position the Grand Utility Vehicle, should emphasize the design of bumpers, which carry the imitation covers. It is unlikely that the manufacturer actually decides to send a massive van on the road, but the publication of the technical specifications still have to wait.
It is known that Kia plans to start selling Carnival fourth generation in the domestic market in the third quarter of this year. After that novelty (including under the name Kia Sedona) go to other countries.
