India’s most POWERFUL Kia Carnival makes 230 Bhp

South Korean car manufacturer Kia entered Indian market last year and became one of the to selling car brands in the country. They started their journey with Seltos SUV which was a huge success, and later launched the luxury MPV Carnival. Kia launched the Carnival to create new segment of its own where it is expensive than the Toyota Innova Crysta that has been ruling the segment for years, but much cheaper than both the Mercedes V-Class and recently launched Toyota Vellfire. The Kia Carnival is doing well in terms of numbers and many have even begun modifying their Carnivals. Here we have a Kia Carnival that is probably India’s most powerful.

Kia Carnival is a huge MPV which is over 5.1 meters long. It has ample amount of space on the inside and has a feature loaded cabin as well. It gets electrically opening sliding doors, dual sunroof, tri-zone climate control, VIP seats (Limousine version), rear seat entertainment screen and so on. As mentioned, Carnival is a huge vehicle and is way more heavier than Toyota Innova Crysta.

The modification on this Kia Carnival has been done by gttunerz and the image has been shared by them on their social media page. Kia Carnival comes with a single engine option. It is powered by a 2.2 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generates 200 Ps or 197 Bhp of peak power and 440 Nm of peak torque. GT Tunerz has remapped the ECU in the Kia Carnival and it now generates a maximum of 230 Bhp and 500 Nm of peak torque. This is a big increase over the stock vehicle’s power and torque numbers, and should make the large, luxurious MPV quite sprightly.

Kia Carnival 25

This is a Stage1 tuning and it has simply increased the power by 33 Bhp and torque by 60 Nm. All said, the Carnival is not meant t be a car that is supposed to be driven fast. it is a car preferred by people who love to be driven around. Kia Carnival concentrates more on the comfort part than outright performance. No other modifications are done to the car apart from the remapped ECU. This modification will definitely make Carnival a bit more responsive than it already was.

The 2.2 litre engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission as standard. Carnival is available in Premium, Prestige and Limousine trims. It is available in 6,7 and 9 seater configurations and the prices start at Rs 24.95 lakh, ex-showroom.
