In the past, the most commonly used large MPV modified real car was the Toyota Alphard. You can often see beautifully modified real cars on the road, but this time I want to introduce you to another one after the modification. The level is not lost to Toyota Alphard's Kia Carnival, becoming the most beautiful family moving castle in the author's heart.
In recent years, there have been more and more choices in the domestic large-scale MPV market, and many brands have successively introduced their MPV models to grab the seven- and eight-seat van market that was originally occupied by Odyssey, Sienna and Alphard. Among these newly introduced models, the most cost-effective model that is gradually attracting attention is the Kia Carnival. In fact, this car has also been introduced in Taiwan in the past. It was a second-generation model at that time, and later it was because the agent quit at that time. , resulting in the short absence of the Kia brand in the domestic market. With Taiwan's Sime Darby Kia's agent Kia brand returning to the domestic market, the third-generation Kia Carnival with minor facelifts will be sold again in 2019, and will follow the rhythm of the original factory in 2021. This is the modified real car introduced in this unit.
In response to the changes of generations and market trends, the size of the Carnival body can be said to be getting bigger and bigger. If you look at the current market standard, the second generation is like a 5+2 space setting, and the third generation is a full-size version. The fourth generation this time has a length of 5155mm, and the wheelbase is increased by 30mm compared with the previous generation, reaching the spectrum of 3090mm. Judging from the body size, the opponent is just the Toyota Sienna, which is the largest multi-seater MPV model on the market. However, the interior design of the Toyota Sienna is more inclined to a family car, with a simple and practical design. The interior of Kia Carnival is more luxurious VIP car atmosphere, the two have a completely different atmosphere in the car.
As for the power system, Kia Carnival is powered by a 2.2-liter diesel engine with a maximum power of 202hp/3800rpm and 45kgm/2150-2750rpm. It sounds like it is the same as the previous version sold in the domestic market, but in fact it is not. The material has been changed from cast iron to aluminum alloy, which reduces the weight of the engine by 20 kilograms, and the engine has a low friction inside, and the cooling system is strengthened. The effect of exhaust emissions. For this engine, there is currently no enhancement kit available in China, and the software including the optimization and adjustment of the external computer or the built-in ECU program has not been developed. Therefore, if you want to increase the horsepower, you can only temporarily regret it, but Tuner has replaced the SFJ. The turbo tube of the whole car helps to accelerate the response. On the day of the interview, the author took a short test drive and found that the strength of the starting acceleration is quite sufficient, and there will be no problems of heavy drag or insufficient strength. With the assistance of an eight-speed manual transmission , the torque output is quite sufficient, for daily use, or highway overtaking use, don't worry about feeling powerless.
