  • Estimated from RM 218k, 11-seater CKD 2023 Kia Carnival to launch soon? Unofficial bookings open

    Dealers have announced that bookings for the locally-assembled (CKD Kulim) 2023 Kia Carnival 11-seater are now open, signalling that the model's official launch should be happening sometime soon. Some of them have even given it a preliminary estimated pricetag of RM 218,000; and while that is slightly higher than the RM 200k the fully-imported variants of the 11-seater Carnival currently commands, this could spell a specs update too to bring it better in-line with the CKD 7- and 8-seater variant

  • Test drive the Kia Carnival at this weekend's Carlist Drive Auto Fair in Setia Alam

    If you're in search of a large family MPV, look no further than the locally assembled (CKD) Kia Carnival, which will be available for test drives at this weekend's Carlist Drive Auto Fair at the Setia Alam Convention Centre. While its cost is comparable to that of a reconditioned Toyota Alphard / Vellfire, the Kia Carnival offers an added advantage – a 5-year / 100,000 km manufacturer warranty. This warranty is a typical inclusion for new cars, yet Kia goes the extra mile by including a 5-year /

However, we now have spyshots of the refreshed Carnival and it appears that an assembly line isn’t the only thing it will share with the EV9. The photos from YouTube channel Shorts Car indicate that the Carnival has taken inspiration from the EV9’s front fascia as well. Apart from the EV9-inspired from end

  • Review: CKD 2022 Kia Carnival - For the boss or for the family? Why not both?

    Technically the 2022 Kia Carnival (KA4) sits uncontested in Malaysia. Well yes it's an MPV, with lots of seats and a couple of sliding doors, but it's the only one you can buy new in its price range that's built solely for the people-carrying business that's not a sanitised version of a commercial van. We already love the 11-seater, Korean-imported (CBU) variant that came to Malaysia first. It's far more difficult to sieve the negatives in the locally-assembled (CKD Kulim, Kedah) 7- and 8-seater
