Car Profiles - Kia Carnival

KIA CARNIVAL

A 2015 redesign gave the Carnival more space, a "Grand" moniker, and an engine shared with the Santa Fe having more power than before. While becoming more grand, the price had jumped.

The Good: More space and luxurious
The Bad: Somewhat underspec'd

Price Range: P1,575,000-P2,800,000
Our Rating: ***
