Kia Motors Corporation has revealed the first images of the new Kia Carnival, the fourth generation of the brand's flagship minivan.

Released in Korean specification, the new Kia Carnival - sold in many markets worldwide as the Kia Sedona - has been designed to appeal to progressive young families, with a leading combination of innovation, flexibility, and style.

The prominent sense of volume, with bold wheel arches and sharp lines, gives a sculpted appearance
Dubbed a 'Grand Utility Vehicle', the new model boasts a design evolution for the Carnival. The fourth generation model builds on its predecessors' heritage with a more architectural sense of solidity and an upgraded appearance that draws on the overarching design ethos that links all of Kia's cars design identity.

Matched with highly detailed, futuristic details and SUV-inspired design elements, the new model brings a stronger, more stylish presence to the mid-sized MPV segment.

The new Carnival features a shorter front overhang, with the base of the A-pillar moved backwards to create a longer hood. Its increased wheelbase also contributes to greater space throughout the cabin, while giving the car a longer, slightly more athletic silhouette.

The result is a side profile that reveals the Carnival's more dynamic DNA. This is emphasised by a simple yet bold character line that runs along the length of the car, linking the front and rear lamps.

The rear of the Carnival boasts a wide, distinct design using full-width lines to emphasise a sense of solidity
The new model features a unique 'island roof' design, with blacked-out A and B-pillars supporting the body-colored roof. From the side, one of the new car's stand-out features is an eye-catching new C-pillar signature design, inspired by that of the new Sorento.

The front of the Carnival resembles a 'tiger face' which extends across the width of the vehicle. This confident, more futuristic face seamlessly integrates lamps with Kia's iconic 'tiger-nose' grille. Kia's designers have dubbed this 'symphonic architecture', with the design of the front bringing together a range of detailed, technical features to create a sense of harmony and structural energy.

The Carnival's headlamps and LED daytime running lights form a unique light signature. The high-beam lamps are integrated into the corner of the tiger-nose grille, with the low-beam lamps sitting separately, at the outer edges of the front of the car.

Beneath, the sculpted bumpers and lower air intake are matched with metallic trim and a black lower bumper, presenting the Carnival's robust, SUV-inspired appearance. Further enhancing its SUV-inspired design, the Carnival is finished off with a metallic lower skid plate, elevating the car further and giving it a more robust appearance.
