New Kia Carnival: Specs & Price Released

Kia New Zealand has recently released the new Carnival’s specs and pricing, as well as the upgrades you can expect in the new vehicle.

The new and refreshed Kia Carnival brings a great deal of upgrades to the table. Soon to arrive on New Zealand shores, the Carnival steps into the digital age with connectivity and convenience at its core, brimming with Kia’s next-generation connected car technology (ones that you’ll also find in our recent electric SUV, the flagship EV9 range).

The multipurpose Carnival reaffirms itself as a trailblazer in the minivan segment, delivering a distinct edge in the space between SUV and family hauler, offering exceptional passenger and cargo space. In response to the growing demand for hybrid models, the Carnival further expanded its versatility and now offers a hybrid variant to join the Carnival family.

Kia Carnival Hybrid

The combined hybrid output of 180kW and 367Nm torque (the largest in the Kia HEV lineup) further aims to enhance performance and fuel economy. It offers passengers a comfortable ride through its smooth and seamless transition between the engine and the electric motor. The hybrid system also assists with the following, enhancing the overall driving experience:

  • Start/Low Speed: The electric motor helps accelerate the Carnival using fuel.
  • Acceleration/Uphill: The engine & electric motor work in Parallel, maximising acceleration and minimise fuel consumption.
  • Constant Speed: Power is provided by either the petrol engine or the electric motor, whichever is the most energy-efficient in that situation.
  • Deceleration/Downhill: The regenerative braking smartly recharges the battery
