Re-writing the People Mover rules.

The Carnival is quite unlike any car we’ve crafted before. Fusing SUV-inspired design with an unstoppable attitude, the Carnival uses progressive styling that boasts an aesthetic like no other.


Featuring a luxurious interior for eight, lavishly equipped with next-generation Kia technology, the Carnival lets you and your passengers travel in grand comfort and style. We didn't just build a People Mover. We upgraded it to a Grand Utility Vehicle.

A design revolution.

  • Game face on

    One look at the athletic shape of the Carnival and you know it will never back down. The strong Tiger nose grille and wide stance give it a commanding presence. While the geometrical contoured LED headlights create a more aggressive finish.

  • Athletic body lines

    Prominent SUV-like wheel arches and an athletic shoulder line combine with a sharp roofline with stylish roof rails that presents spacious accommodations to front and rear passengers.

  • Big is bold

    Beauty is in the detail. The available 19” Black Alloy Wheels on the Platinum grade take the visual appeal of the Carnival to the next level.

  • Sculpted rear design

    A slim rear harmoniously blends the rear LED combination lights, while the rear wipers remain hidden until in use, giving the rear a clean and modern impression.

Luxury on a grander scale.


A world of ease.
