Kia Carnival A-NCAP Crash Test

The newest MPV/Minivan from the Kia stable has just passed the Australian NCAP with flying colors. Following a global launch in 2020, the Carnival has since made waves with its stellar design and its features that can appeal to many buyers looking for a feature-rich hauler with Kia quality.

Perhaps the most unused but necessary feature is safety, and the Carnival also delivers in this area. Now in its fourth generation, the Carnival has been reworked and retooled to meet modern safety standards. Kia engineered effective crumple zones that minimized a lot of the force that was to enter the cabin. On top of that, other features like the complete array of airbags managed to keep occupants safe. It is also worth noting that the Carnival was able to take the side impact test very well. The doors were able to absorb a lot of the force coming its way, and the curtain airbags triggered by design.

Pedestrian safety was also a criterion in the test, and the front bumper and hood of the Carnival are compliant with the safety requirements for pedestrians in the event of a collision. The 2021 model year of the Kia Carnival sees an autonomous emergency braking system installed, and it performed to the letter, avoiding collision and mitigated the accident as much as possible. Pedestrian detection was also a part of the test, and the Carnival was able to pass, detecting and stopping for walking pedestrians or cyclists on the road.

This spells only good news for the Carnival’s reputation. Kia has been on the rise when it comes to its safety systems, and transitioning to an all-electric future necessitates that the brand does better for its passive and active safety systems moving forward. Kia Philippines and their parent company, AC Motors, have yet to announce and launch the Kia Carnival, however, we can expect that it will be one of the more luxurious MPVs/Minivans in the market when it makes landfall sometime in the near or far future.
