Kia Carnival 2024 01

DINAMIKJAYA Motors Sdn Bhd, the official distributor of the Kia brand in Malaysia, has introduced the 2024 Kia Carnival, which brings a slew of upgrades.

As before, the Carnival is locally assembled and is available in configurations of seven-, eight- and 11-seat configurations. However, the number of offered variants has been reduced from four to three, namely:

  • 2.2L 11-seater – RM198,500
  • 2.2L 8-seater – RM245,888
  • 2.2L 7-seater – RM259,888

All three variants are powered by a 2.2-liter turbodiesel engine producing 199 hp at 3,800 rpm and 440 Nm from 1,750 to 2,750 rpm.

The engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission tasked with delivering power to the front wheels.

What’s new with the 2024 model? According to Dinamikjaya, the appearance of the seven and eight-seater Carnival models has been enhanced with black 19-inch alloy wheels, as well as black and gray leatherette upholstery.

Both variants retain the premium features offered previously, which include LED daytime running lights, twin sunroof, Smart Power Sliding Door, and Smart Power Tailgate.

Additionally, niceties such as heated and ventilated seats, LED interior lighting, and Surround View Monitor are also carried over. However, the Premium Relaxation seats with its centre walkthrough configuration are only available in the seven-seater variant.

Meanwhile, the 11-seater Carnival continues to offer four rows of seating with a 2-3-3-3 configuration, suitable for those with large families.

For entertainment, the Carnival comes with a 12.3-inch touchscreen with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, alongside creature comforts such as wireless charging, Bluetooth, and seven USB charging ports.

The safety system for the seven and eight-seater variants has been upgraded with the addition of a new feature, the Blind-Spot View Monitor (BVM).

In case you didn’t know, the Carnival is locally assembled at the Inokom assembly plant in Kulim, Kedah. For the 2024 model, there are four exterior colours to choose from – Astra Blue, Snow White Pearl, Meteor Gray, and Jet Black.

Bookings for the MPV are now open, and each purchase comes with a manufacturer’s warranty for five years/100,000 km and a free scheduled maintenance package for five years/100,000 km.
