We now have confirmed pricing of the locally-assembled (CKD) 2022 Kia Carnival, currently on display at the WapCar Auto Show Exhibition. There are three variants available:
- 2.2D 8-Seater - RM 231,228
- 2.2D 8-Seater High - RM 247,228
- 2.2D 7-seater High - RM 261,228
Prices stated are on-the-road inclusive of sales and service tax (SST).
Details and specifications have yet to be released, but we are able to spot a few key features on the 7- and 8-Seater High variants (both of which appears to be identically equipped, apart from the obvious seating configuration).
Compared to the CBU model, the CKD Kia Carnival gains the 12-speaker Bose sound system, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, LED taillights, sunroof, interior lighting, heated and ventilated seats, and most importantly, ADAS.
The suite of ADAS includes:
- Smart Cruise Control (SCC) with Stop and Go
- Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)
- Blind Spot Collision Avoidance (BCA)
- Rear Cross-traffic Collision Avoidance Assist (RCCA)
- Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
As before, the CKD Kia Carnival is powered by a 2.2-litre turbodiesel that outputs 202 PS/441 Nm, hooked up to an 8-speed automatic transmission that spins the front wheels.
The WapCar Auto Show Exhibition takes place at Pavilion Bukit Jalil, from 1-3 July 2022, Friday to Sunday, 10am to 10 pm.
Apart from Kia, other exhibitors include Mazda, Peugeot, Honda, Toyota, and Mercedes-Benz. Good deals on auto accessories including DDPai dashcams, Trapo car hygiene products, IGL Coatings paint protection, Karcher car wash products, custom-made DK Schweizer, and Harman’s Infinity audio systems, will also be available.
The event will take place at the piazza area of Pavilion Bukit Jalil. Visitors are encouraged to register online here to redeem a free door gift. The nearest covered parking to the exhibition area is Car Park Entrance C, just before the slip road to exit the main road into Pavilion Bukit Jalil.
