Kia's emergence in the Indian Automobile market is astonishing, to say the least, Kia Seltos is one of the top-selling SUV's in the country. Apart from Seltos, Kia Carnival is racking up good sales numbers. Having said this, the Carnival sales in India have crossed 3,000 units in just 3 months since its launch early this year at 2020 Auto Expo. The premium luxury MPV Kia Carnival price starts from Rs 24.95 lakhs (ex-showroom), India. Among the thousands of customers who have already purchased the Kia Carnival, ex-cricketer Ajay Jadeja has just joined the list. Jadeja played for India in the ’90s earning 15 test caps and 196 ODI appearances. A finisher in the later overs, Ajay Jadeja was famous for hard-hitting batting and brilliant fielding.
From the images doing the rounds, we can safely assume that Ajay Jadeja brought the top-end model of Kia Carnival. The top-of-the-line Kia Carnival Limousine costs around Rs 33.95 lakhs (ex-showroom), India. Carnival MPV was the second model launched by the South Korean Automaker after Seltos. Reason for Kia Carnival popularity might lie in the premium and feature-rich interior. It has achieved good numbers in the market despite the slowdown in the Automobile sector. This MPV has no direct competitor in India as its positioned higher than Toyota Innova Crysta and several notches lower than Toyota Vellfire.
Carnival Limousine variant comes packed with features like dual panel electric sunroof, Tr-Zone Climate control, VIP seats with rear seat entertainment system, one-touch power sliding door and smart power tailgate. On top of these exciting features, the vehicle is offering Smart Connectivity at no cost in the starting three years after purchase. It is available with three colour schemes Aurora Black Pearl, Steel Silver and Glacier Pearl White. Ajay Jadeja would definitely have been taken by its performance. Present is a BS6 compliant 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel engine that delivers 197 bhp of power output with 440 Nm of peak torque. The powertrain comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.
