Kia Motors India, the South Korean auto maker is starting the year 2020 by introducing a brand new high profile car called Kia Carnival. Kia Carnival is an MPV (Multi-purpose Vehicle) which is premium and gets cutting edge “extravagant” features. The all new Carnival is the second product by Kia Motors India, after a very successful start with its landmark debut product Seltos.
The Seltos has created a niche by itself and Kia now wants to leverage it with the introduction of Carnival.
