Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam has recently taken the delivery of his brand new Kia Carnival premium MPV. The Kia Carnival recently won the 'Facelift of the Year' category at the recently concluded inaugural Zee Auto Awards. As per the images shared by a dealership from Mumbai, Sonu Nigam can be seen taking the delivery of black coloured MPV along with his family members.
The Kia Carnival is the automaker's flagship offering in India and starts at Rs 24.95 lakh for the base variant, going upto Rs 33.99 lakh (ex-showroom). It's not sure which variant the singer has opted for, but we are assuming the top-spec seven-seater VIP seat variant would have been the singer's choice. Not only Sonu Nigam, multiple Bollywood stars have bought the Kia Carnival in the past, adding the humble MPV as their everyday vehicle, replacing expensive cars. Amitabh Bachchan, Hritik Roshan are among the celebs buying this MPV. Also, Telangana govt gifted multiple Carnival MPVs to its office bearers recently.
Kia Carnival was updated recently for the 2021 model and a 6-seater variant was also added. New updates with subtle tweaks to the exterior were made to the MPV. The cosmetic upgrades on the 2021 Kia Carnival include the new 'Kia' logo, heavier silver skid plate, C-Shaped garnish around the LED fog lamp and new 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.
Inside the cabin is among the most premium offering with leatherette reclining seats, 10.1-inch rear-seat entertainment system, Harman Kardon eight-speaker sound system, electronic parking brake, 10 -way electrically-adjustable driver's seat with ventilation and TPMS among many other features. The one touch open electronic doors are also among the favourite for buyers of this car. The Kia Carnival is powered by a 2.2-litre, four-cylinder VGT diesel engine producing 197 bhp and 440 Nm of peak torque and is mated to an 8-speed Sportmatic automatic transmission.
