The Grand Carnival is being offered at a starting price of PKR 3,999,000 for the standard version and PKR 4,799,000 for the Ex (high spec) version. Kia Lucky Motors has inaugurated its first dealership in Pakistan today at main Shahra-e-Faisal Karachi close to the Baloch Colony Bridge. It is said that they are expected to open dealerships in Lahore and Faisalabad very soon.

Positive news for car customers, Kia is changing trends by offering more in Pakistan. Not talking about just features here, Kia is offering four years or 100,000 km warranty which speaks volumes about the confidence they have in their product. This beats the current industry trend by far and should surely give more confidence to the customers about the quality Kia is offering. Not just this, to top it all they are offering two free services as well.

We are excited about what will be next after the Grand Carnival since Kia has an award-winning global lineup of vehicles! We were also seeing some characteristic Kia cars being tested on the roads like Rio and Picanto. While the Kia Grand Carnival is available for test drive and sale in Karachi, Kia Motors is also offering test drives for the much awaited Kia Sportage which is not available for sale as of now. It looks like people will have to wait long before they can own a Sportage, yet they can take a test drive. All you have to do is register using the Kia Konnect app, and you will be all set to drive!

In addition to this, the commercial Pickup Truck called Frontier(k2700) has also been launched by the company, which looks to have a promising future. Nevertheless, Grand Carnival is in the limelight for now. Let’s see how this new car performs in Pakistan. Stay tuned for more updates.

  1. It got a v6, better than honda selling a 1.5l low spec hrv for 4.2 million.

    Carnival costs almost same in most rhd markets as well and I'm sure they are not launching carnival to attract sale numbers, the real stuff is still to come.

  2. Do you even know how much a Toyota Alphard with up specs costs? Prices are very reasonable for this sized vehicle.

  3. Big day for the Pakistani automotive industry, we heartily welcome Kia-Lucky motors. The Grand Carnival is a solid car all around, yes it is priced at the higher end of the spectrum but it is perfectly justifiable for a car with a 3.3L V6 putting out 270 HP and a lot of modern tech on board. It does warrant another look to see how many features they bring to the table for PKR 4.7 million however, it is a perfectly reasonable price considering the strong engine, Kia's reliability record of late, the amount of features on board, the aggressive 4-year warranty and the fact that the 1.5L Honda HRV is priced at 4 million. I think Kia-Lucky is here to stay and nothing shows that better than their commitment to bringing quaility products like the Grand Carnival here.

  4. I think kafi saron ko roza lag raha hai.
    Because this pricing is completely appropriate. As a few have pointed out above, this has a 3.3l V6 with 4yr/100,000km warranty and alot of options since it will be a CBU. What else do you want?
    What else can you get in this price range? A vezel? CHR? (talking only from a pricing POV, i know they're not comparable)
    Let's not even talk about cars equivalent to the carnival since they will be 150,200% of this price.

  5. عوام اس لئے ناراض ہو رہی ہے کیونکہ یہ سوچ رہے تھے انکو مفت گاڑیاں ملنا شروع ہوجائیں گی۔

    پاکستانی عوام کے خواب بہت اونچے اور حقیقت سے دور ہوتے ہیں۔
