Watch: New Kia Carnival owner accidentally becomes crash test dummy in dealer lot 01

New car collections are very special moments, especially for a first-time car buyer. This is why car dealerships always organise a special collection ceremony that offered chances to snap plenty of photos to commemorate the moment. But this new car collection in India went so wrong that airbags were deployed.

The video started with a car salesman explaining the MPV’s many functions to the very excited owner while casually dressed man busily snapped photo after photo.

When explanations were done, that was when everything went downhill. Instead of easing the MPV out of the delivery bay, the owner suddenly accelerated right into a wall.

The impact was so severe that the MPV’s front-end was entirely damaged while the airbags were deployed.

For your information, the Kia Carnival is one of the most powerful MPVs available on the market. The 2.2-litre TCI turbodiesel engine dispenses 200 PS and 440 Nm.

In Malaysia, the 2020 Kia Grand Carnival has recently been upgraded to a 11-seater MPV complete with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay

We suspect that this new car owner in India is not used to torquey-ness of the Carnival’s diesel engine. But still, this is a very painful crash on a car that has barely done 10 km on its mileage metre.

Have you ever heard of such incidences happening in Malaysia?



There isn’t a time in memory that doesn’t involve staring at cars. After discovering the excitement of watching Schumacher vs Hakkinen, Formula 1 became a major part of life. The love for cars and F1 ultimately led to a job with CAR Magazine. The untimely death of the magazine meant a hiatus from cars at lifestyle women’s magazine Marie Claire before another opportunity came knocking again.
