“Designed to appeal to progressive young families, KIA has launched its fourth-generation Grand Sedona.”
In its fourth-generation and dubbed the Grand Utility Vehicle, KIA have revealed their fourth-generation Grand Sedona after a few teaser images made rounds on the net. Known as the Carnival in Korea, the new design is set to appeal to young progressive families with combined innovations, flexibility and style.
The fourth-generation model builds on its predecessors’ heritage with a more architectural sense of solidity and an upgraded appearance that draws on the overarching design ethos that links all KIA cars’ design identity. Matched with highly detailed, futuristic, and SUV-inspired design elements, the new model brings a stronger, more stylish presence to the mid-sized MPV segment.
Sighted from the front, the new KIA Grand Sedona has shortened front overhangs with the base of the A-pillar moved backwards creating a longer bonnet. Its wheelbase has also been increased contributing to larger space while giving the car a graceful silhouette emphasised by a character line that runs through the length of the car linking the front and rear lights.
Inspired by the Sorento, the KIA Grand Sedona features a tiger-nose grille and a futuristic front end with daytime driving LED lights that also form a unique signature. At the rear, the Carnival boasts a wide, distinctive new design which uses full-width lines to emphasize the car’s sense of solidity. Above the light bar is a chrome line, which started at the base of the new signature C-pillar and wraps around the base of the rear screen. Beneath the light bar, highlight lines extend across the tailgate to raise the visual center of gravity of the rear of the car.
The new KIA Grand Sedona is due-on-sale in Korea, KIA’s domestic market, later in the third quarter of 2020, with global sales in many of KIA’s markets to follow thereafter. More product details will be released soon.
