I am driving the Kia Grand Carnival since Nov 2018 and loving it really. MashaAllah.
Have done a road trip with family to Karachi and taken it to the North a couple of times as well.
Living in Islamabad and bought from Lahore.
The Fuel avg for me is 7-8 km/l in the city and 9-10km/l on the Motorway. This is much much better than Fortuner and Prado.
The comfort and luxury of the interior is unmatched compared to even Land Cruiser. 6 full business class seats and 2 smaller seats very comfortable for kids. Huge luggage space with a 4th row seat good enough for 3 kids hidden under the floor. This seat was solely added to declare it as a 11 seater van for Custom duty purpose otherwise it's price would have been around 2 crore like other imported luxury SUVs.
If you consider the price which is around 6 Million even now after all the increases I dont think one can get a better value for money than this.
Yes if you are looking for a status symbol only and not concerned about comfort and price or drive offroad a lot then go for Fortuner/Prado/Land Cruiser/Revo etc etc but if you want value for money, luxury, comfort and driving pleasure this is the one.
Final Disclaimer: No I do not work for KIA and neither I am looking for a job with them I am just a happy customer.
