A lifestyle look at the 2015 Kia Carnival

The new Kia Carnival combines the best of an SUV with the practicality of a van. Eight seats, its roomy and has lots of storage. It has a distinct SUV vibe going on which i like – when you think van you think mini-bus but this is different looking. The Carnival looks big – and it is – interesting to note that it was designed by Peter Schreyer, the brains behind the award winning Audi TT...

2016 Kia Carnival gets five-star ANCAP safety rating

The Kia Carnival has at last attained an important five-star ANCAP rating after Australia's safety watchdog tested the upgraded version. It’s almost a year since the new Kia Carnival scored a surprise four-star ANCAP rating, chalked up at the time partly to “excessive movement of the park and foot brake pedals and significant footwell deformation”...

Kia Australia's sales on an upward march

Kia appears to be hitting its stride in Australia in 2015, given its annual growth rate of almost 20 per cent, or five times the market-wide figure. It was up 36 per cent in November alone.
