Next-gen Kia Carnival & Sorento spied in India ahead of Auto Expo

The fourth-gen Carnival could replace the model currently sold in India later this year.

Kia is all set to unveil the next-gen Carnival and Sorento SUV at the upcoming Auto Expo 2023. While we wait for the covers to come off, here are the first images of the cars taken at one of Kia India’s facilities.

The fourth-generation Kia Carnival was launched in the global market back in August 2020. Reports suggest that it could replace the model currently sold in India later this year.

The Carnival is a large MPV offering 3-row or 4-row seating configurations and has space for up to 11 passengers. The fourth generation comes with dual 12.3-inch screens for the touchscreen infotainment and the digital instrument cluster. The infotainment and climate control functions can be controlled using touch-sensitive buttons on the dashboard.

The fourth-gen Carnival looks more contemporary with its sharp lines and sleek LED headlamps and tail lights. That being said, it retains its MPV proportions.

Coming to the Sorento, it’s unclear if Kia will introduce this 7-seater SUV in the Indian market anytime soon. It is Kia’s version of the Hyundai Santa Fe and is offered with a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol with mild-hybrid tech or as a plug-in hybrid, along with a 2.2-litre diesel engine.
