2021 Kia Carnival Achieves 5-star Rating in ANCAP
At the most recent round of Australian NCAP crash inspection, the Kia Carnival MPV has just earned a five-star safety mark. In the adult security and child welfare divisions, the MPV performed especially well.
This safety grade is applicable for any possible version of the 2021 Kia Carnival in Australia and powertrain options. Kia provides vintage, third-generation Carnival MPV in India. It should be noted.
The Kia Carnival achieved 90%, earning 34.54 points out of 38 points, starting with the adult occupant defense division. In addition, the side effect, oblique poles, and rescue and extraction checks were performed perfectly. The readings showed sufficient safety for the driver’s top and lower legs and the passenger’s top legs in the frontal offset test (which ranked 5.98 out of 8 points). All other vital body regions were well protected. The Kia Carnival front construction also posed a modest risk to an incoming vehicle passenger.
With regard to the group of child occupants, the MPV achieved an 88 percent ranking and a performance of 43.52 out of 49 possible points. In both the front and side effect studies, the Kia obtained excellent results for child safety. An on-board security hardware evaluation, the only place he ever missed points.
The carnival was also well performed in the safety assistance department, achieving an 82 percent ranking with the scoring of 13,25 out of 16 points available. The trim of the checked carnival was supported by several safety features, including an AEB, lane protection (LSS) with the lane-keeping assistance system (LKA), a speed support system (SAS), a blind spot monitoring system (BSM), and a seatbelt recorder. Both programs were well performed in simulations, with only flawless results lacking.
The latest carnival’s only division was the vulnerable safety for road users since it gained just 36,91 out of a possible 53 points, earning a ranking of 68 percent. The AEB machine was only efficient in identifying and stopping pedestrians and bikers.
In Australia, Kia provides both diesel and petrol engine options for carnival. The diesel engine is a 201hp and 440Nm 2.2 liter turbo powered model, while the petrol engine is a 3.5 liter, 294hp, and 355Nm V6 engine. Each motor with an 8-speed automatic gearbox is available.
As of now, no official assurance is available when our market will get the next generation of Carnival. We are aware that in 2022, Kia announced that it will be entering a new segment in India.
