Gone are the days when demanding for space means having to sacrifice on aesthetics as trade-off, as the 2016 Kia Carnival boasts of a sophisticated fusion of the two. Characterized by its sleeker and more robust black bar type grille, the new model’s interiors have been designed with enough room to comfortably seat eight passengers, and at the same time leaving enough room for belongings to spare. Its spacious cabin also has advanced multiple seating and safety configurations — making it a new standard of the family vehicle today.
Ideal for long-haul drives — this year’s model promises superior driver comfort with its cleverly thought of design, with its ergonomic support and intuitive positioning of configurations that makes for smoother and more convenient operation. Its two variants of the 3.3L V6 petrol engine and 2.2L turbo diesel engine assures stronger performance across varying terrains, with better front and rear suspensions and interior insulation for an overall quieter ride. It possesses 6-speed automatic transmission, and economical fuel consumption of 11.6 and 7.7 liters per 100km, for the petrol and diesel engines, respectively.
Drivers will revel in the modern superior upgrades installed in some models, like the ventilated seats, stain resistant cloth seats, power sliding doors, reverse camera, lane departure warning system and hands-free smart power tailgate. Its safety features include an anti-lock braking system, electronic stability control, auto-dimming rear view mirror, blind spot detection and a forward collision warning system, among others. It is also equipped with anti-theft immobilizer and remote central locking with key-less entry for added security.
Sleek and stylish design, combined with reputable safety features, without a doubt, make the 2016 Kia Carnival a new iconic family vehicle today. Check it out and see more of its remarkable features at Kia Motors in Gorordo Ave. Cebu City. (FSE)
