New 11-Seater Kia Grand Carnival Launched in Malaysia
The new Kia Grand Carnival has been officially launched in Malaysia. Priced at RM179,888 (on-the-road without insurance), the MPV now seats up to 11 passengers thanks to its Multiflex seating configurations.
According to Naza Kia, the configurations allow an adjustable seating layout to meet the needs of the modern family. The seats can even be adjusted to 6, 7, or 8-seater layouts should the need arise.
Like the eight-seater version, the 11-seater Grand Carnival is powered by a 2.2-litre TCI diesel engine that makes 200 PS at 3,800 rpm and 440 Nm of torque from 1,750 rpm. An eight-speed automatic transmission is tasked to send the output to the front wheels.
The Grand Carnival can be had in four colours, namely Snow White Pearl, Silky Silver, Aurora Black Pearl and Panthera Metal. It comes with a five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
