  • Kia Motors has recently revealed the 2021 Kia Carnival Hi-Limousine variant globally.
  • The engine that powers the luxury Kia Carnival Hi-Limousine is a 3.5L V6 petrol unit.
  • It comes with either a seven-seater or a nine-seater layout.

Kia Motors has recently introduced the fourth-generation Kia Carnival globally and now the company is all set to reintroduce a longer variant of the MPV. The all-new Kia Carnival Hi-Limousine is 5200mm long and 2045mm tall all because of the roof box. However, this roof box is only there to offer more headroom so that the cabin feels spacious.


Design-wise, the all-new Kia Carnival Hi-Limousine remains similar to the regular Carnival. However, the extended length enhances the road presence to a great extent. With a signature ‘tiger-nose’ design, headlights with DRLs and a newly designed grille for proper cooling it feels fresh and meets the modern MPV design language.


Being a limousine, it comes with either a seven or a nine-seater layout. Further, the center of attraction on the updated MPV remains the 21.5-inch entertainment system that supports smartphone mirroring, TV signal, HDMI and USB port among others. Further, the seven-seater layout comes with captain seats in the middle row with added leg rests. Other features such as air purifier, ambient lighting, pleated curtains, etc. are also available on the Kia Carnival Hi-Limousine.

Safety Features

Multiple safety features such as ABS, Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Brake Assist, lane departure assist, adaptive cruise control along with 7-airbags are offered on the Kia Carnival Hi-Limousine variant.


The engine that powers the Limo variant of the 2021 Kia Carnival is a 3.5L V6 Petrol unit. It produces 290BHP of power with a peak torque of 355Nm. Meanwhile, there is an 8-speed automatic gearbox to handle the transmission duties.

In India, Kia Motors is currently selling the third-generation Kia Carnival. The Korean carmaker is expected to update the Kia Carnival soon. However, the launch of the Hi-Limousine variant in India is still under consideration as the pricing could be an issue for the Indian buyers.
