The 2015 Kia Carnival is available in four grades with pricing starting from $41,490 for the base model S in petrol and tops out at $59,990 for the platinum diesel.

The new Kia Carnival, which drops the ‘Grand’ from its predecessor’s name, is an entirely new vehicle from the ground up, with the South Korean brand using the same platform as the upcoming Sorento for its latest people mover.

Pricing has risen across all models, but so has the level of standard equipment, safety features and technology.

Kia says the majority of private buyers are likely to pick the Si variant, while fleets, which make up 75 percent of Carnival purchases because of its spacious eight-seats, will go for the base model S.

All four models: S, Si, SLi and Platinum, are available with either a 3.3-litre petrol V6 (206kW of power and 336Nm of torque) or a 2.2-litre turbodiesel (147kW and440Nm), both using a six speed automatic transmission. The diesel models command an additional $2,500 on top of their equivalent petrol variants.
