Cabin Design Of The Year – Kia Carnival 7-Seater

The best cabin design in our view was done on the Kia Carnival 7-Seater.

When it comes to cabin design, there are objective and subjective areas to evaluate. The objective aspects include build quality, ergonomics, use of material, and features whereas the subjective qualities include the styling, colour choices, and overall impression. Obviously, a lot of premium cars do a great job with cabin design, but lately we also see electric vehicles doing unconventional things with cabin design.

For us, we generally prefer a more conventional look that oozes quality and is up to par in terms of tech. That is why our pick for cabin design of the year goes to the newly updated Kia Carnival 7-seater. This model comes with a revised 2-tone colour scheme and very functional and flexible seating arrangements. What’s more the vehicle is absolutely comfortable and with dual displays and ambient lighting, it feels almost like a premium MPV costing twice as much.

About VOTY 2024

The Allianz DSF.my Vehicle Of The Year (VOTY) Award ceremony is the first and only vehicle award event in Malaysia that does not hand out paid awards, nor does it charge winners or participating brands any fee whatsoever. Winners are allowed to use the VOTY event logo free of charge in all marketing materials. Event attendees are not even charged for their seat at the award presentation. All car manufacturers that operate in Malaysia are invited to participate free of charge. All they have to do is let our judges test drive their nominated vehicles.

The nominated vehicles must have been launched in Malaysia in the last 12 months and cannot be a localised minor facelift (body-kits, stickers, wheel upgrades, etc). All judging is independent and is put down to a vote before the winners are selected. Car manufacturers are not informed if they are winning or not before the event.

The judges for VOTY 2024 are Daniel Sherman Fernandez and Subhash Nair of dsf.my, Ross Hadi of gohedgostan.com and Joshua Chin of automacha.com.
