Several Upcoming MPV cars have been introduced in the Indian market as a result of the growing demand for SUVs. The most popular MPV in the nation right now is the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. Moreover, the Toyota Innova, the Renault Triber, and the Kia Carens have had great success for their respective manufacturers. A total of 4 new multi-purpose utility vehicles would be introduced in the nation during the next 12 months.
New Kia Carnival
Kia debuted the new KA4 3-row MPV at the 2023 Auto Expo. In many ways, it is the upgraded Carnival, which is currently available in several foreign markets. It will probably debut on our market in 2023/2024. The fourth-generation Carnival sports angular surfaces and a squared-off attitude rather than the cab-forward appearance of an MPV.
The new-generation Carnival, or KA4, is 40 mm longer and has a 10 mm broader body than the one currently for sale in our market. It also rides on a wheelbase that is 30 mm longer. The 7-seater variant has a trunk capacity of 627 liters with all seats in place, which can be increased to 2,905-L by folding the rear seats.
Together with other advanced driver assistance technologies, the 2017 Kia Carnival MPV has lane assist, high beam assist, collision avoidance aid, blind spot monitoring, and many more. A 2.2-liter Smartstream turbo diesel engine will be available for the new Kia Carnival, which is built on the next-generation N3 chassis. 199 bhp and 44 Nm of torque can be generated by this engine.
Nissan 3-Row MPV
Nissan India has said that it would introduce two new SUVs, one new MPV, and an entirely new electric car in India within the next two to three years, riding on the popularity of Magnite. Nissan has announced that it will release a new seven-seater MPV built on the CMF-A+ platform.
