If the design of the new 2021 Kia Carnival is going to be even remotely close to this, then it looks like we're in for a treat! Plus, it's expected to be longer, roomier & wider than its predecessor.
Kia has just dropped a teaser of the new 2021 Carnival (or the Sedona, as it is called in other international markets), and it looks really promising. With this, Kia's flagship MPV is set to enter its fourth-generation. It'll be marketed as a 'Grand Utility Vehicle', a term given by Kia designers based on its new SUV-inspired design.
Speaking of SUV-inspired design, the 2021 Carnival gets a very squarish, upright stance, thanks to a heavily reworked front fascia. The bonnet seems to be much more upright now, and the new 'Tiger Nose' grille is connected to new, sharper-looking LED headlamps by a continuous running edge on the lower part of the grille. The glasshouse design, too, has been revised. The fourth-gen model also seems to sport bigger dimensions. This, however, is yet to be confirmed. The new, bold design is a result of Kia's new 'Symphonic Architecture.'
Not much is known at this point about the mechanical changes that can be expected from the 2021 Carnival. It will go on sale in Korea in Q3 2020 and will reach other international markets the following year. However, since the current Carnival was launched in India only a few months ago, don't expect the new model to arrive here anytime before 2022.
