  • It could arrive in India by 2022.

The Kia Carnival debuted the exterior of its new-gen avatar in June 2020 and now the carmaker has given us our first look at its dashboard. It packs the kind of technology and the number of displays you’d expect from a premium MPV in 2020.

Kia has equipped the Carnival with a Mercedes-like panoramic digital console on the dashboard, connecting a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster with a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system. It also gets sleek, horizontally aligned AC vents which give the entire dash a cleaner, simpler look. The hotkeys for the infotainment system are positioned below the central vents and are also touch controls between the two dials.

The new climate control panel has received similar updates with touch-sensitive controls below the digital display flanked by the individual climate controls for the driver and the front passenger. There are few actual buttons left on the dashboard of the new Kia Carnival. Even the conventional drive select lever has been replaced by a rotary dial for the shift-by-wire transmission. It also seems to sport some form of illumination and a button in the centre of it labelled ‘P’, likely to put the transmission into Park.

It will offer second-row passengers access to back-of-seat USB chargers, storage nets for devices, and additional storage space in the base of the rear console with a tray for phones. The new Carnival will be offered in different seating configurations, depending on the market, to accommodate between 7, 9 and 11 occupants. Kia has revealed the new-gen MPVs proportions except for the height:
