You’ve been thinking of investing your hard-earned savings for a while now but you don’t know if you should cash in those savings for a city apartment or a family vehicle. If our advice means anything at all, we recommend the Kia Carnival. Yes, you aren’t seeing things, we really do mean the Carnival instead of an apartment and we’ve compiled all the reasons that’ll make you believe the same.

The 2020 Carnival is the latest MPV launched by Kia and boasts an extravagant familial travel experience. After thorough deliberation, we’ve arrived at the conclusion that Carnival can better accommodate your entire family than a 3BHK flat; and here are all the whys and wherefores.

  1. Extravagantly spacious with seating options that accommodate your entire family: Large families always have to consider their travel arrangements well before any trip. There aren’t many vehicles around that do group seating as well as Kia Carnival, which is exactly why your entire family will sit comfortably inside its cabin amid the 7-seater, 8-seater and 9-seater configurations.
  2. Pricing, cheaper than any average metropolitan apartment: A prime location apartment in Delhi costs somewhere around the 1 crore range and it doubles that cost in Mumbai. On the other hand, the MPV in question costs way less than those flats and even offers much greater utility for the cost. The vehicle’s starting 7-seater price is a paltry INR 24.95 lakhs and the VIP Limousine starts at INR 33.95 lakhs as compared to the ‘crore’ range that a single apartment touches.
  3. Performance and Mobility: As much as we wish to take our homes to wherever we travel, it just isn’t possible. Luckily, the 2020 Carnival is capable of doing just that, so you can make memories while enjoying the amenities of a mobile home. The MPV’s 2.2L BS6 diesel engine delivers a max output of 200 PS power & 440 Nm torque through an 8-speed automatic transmission.
  4. Let’s talk tech: While an average 3BHK offers virtually no technological features, the family vehicle comes with in-built in-car tech and entertainment features. It has the latest 37 different UVO features and touchscreen entertainment systems that an apartment certainly does not boast.
  5. Safety is a priority: Fitted with a comprehensive safety structure, while an apartment is always vulnerable, that includes a strengthened body, six airbags, front & rear parking sensors, stability control, Hill Start Assist Control etc. The Carnival is equipped to keep your family safe and it can also help you drive away during an zombie apocalypse.
