The first-generation Carnival was launched as the country's first minivan in 1998 and has since sold 550,000 units. The new model has been completely redesigned and comes eight years after the second model was released in 2005.
The chassis of the new Carnival is bigger than its predecessor. It is newly equipped with Kia's unique radiator grille, and the overall design looks sharper.
The new minivan is due to be introduced in the country at the Busan International Motor Show in May with a launch date set for June.
