Kia previews new Grand Carnival
A shape of things to come – Kia’s new eight seat MPV.

It’s a model that caused Kia a million headaches at first, then become one of the brands darlings – the Grand Carnival.

Plagued by early mechanical issues that nearly drove the brand from Australia, in more recent years the eight-seater has dominated the people-mover market.

But the old girl is just that, old, and a new Grand Carnival is definitely overdue (will it still be known as the Grand Carnival?). That’s about to change though when Kia officially unveils this new MPV at the New York Auto Show in a fortnight.

Not much is know about the eight-seater at this stage, but Kia assures us more details will be released ahead of the official unveiling, all I can say is that it looks good!
