Protect your family on every journey

The all new Carnival boasts a comprehensive suite of Kia’s most advanced safety technology.

Forward Collision Avoidance Assist – Car, Pedestrian, Cyclist & Junction

Forward Collision Avoidance Assist with Junction Turning is the latest development of this technology. In addition to vehicle, pedestrian and cyclist detection, the system now also detects other road users on more acute angles, such as at an intersection, helping the driver safely navigate through, and applying the brakes if it detects an imminent collision.

Rear Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist

When reversing out of a parking space or driveway, Rear Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist detects and alerts you to vehicles approaching from the left or right, and will also apply the brakes if necessary to avoid a collision.

Around View Monitor with Dynamic Guidelines

Through four one-megapixel cameras installed on the new Carnival, the Around View Monitor can see the front, rear and sides of the vehicle, along with a birds-eye view with zoom in/out function.

Lane Keep Assist & Lane Follow Assist

Lane Keep Assist detects the vehicle's current lane of travel, sounding audio and visual alerts if the vehicle begins to drift outside of its lane without the driver indicating, while also providing small steering controls to guide the vehicle back into the lane of travel. Lane Follow Assist works alongside this system, automatically steering the vehicle to keep it in the centre of the lane whenever it detects the vehicle unintentionally veering.

Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist

The Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist system uses sensors to monitor vehicles in or approaching your blind spots. In addition to audio and visual alerts on the outside mirrors and cluster, a new differential braking system will step in if it detects an imminent collision with a vehicle in your blind spot, applying the Carnival's brakes.

Multi-Collision Brake

The Multi-Collision Braking system helps to reduce the danger of secondary collisions by automatically applying the brakes once the airbags have been deployed after an initial impact.

Rear Occupant Alert

Rear Occupant Alert uses ultrasonic sensors inside the vehicle to detect passengers or pets located in the second and third row seats, alerting the driver before the leaving the vehicle.

Safe Exit Assist

Safe Exit Assist prevents the rear doors opening if the system detects a hazard approaching from behind the vehicle, such as a cyclist or another vehicle.

7 Airbags

To help protect occupants and potentially reduce injuries in the event of a collision, Carnival features dual front & side airbags, dual side-curtain airbags in all three rows, as well as a driver’s knee airbag as standard.

Power Driver’s Seat with Lumbar Support

Delays for new vehicle arrivals

There is currently a worldwide shortage of the key electronic components required in many parts of a new vehicle. Without these components (called “semi-conductors”) the assembly of a new vehicle can be delayed, or in some cases can be impossible. Kia NZ is working closely with Kia Corporation to optimise NZ Kia production however delays are currently being experienced for NZ Kia customers.

Depending on the model and specification, delays can range from six weeks to six months plus. Your Kia dealer can advise you of the expected lead time for your specific vehicle. If you would like to contact us please click here. We would like to thank all of our customers for their support and patience during this time.
