Hyundai Staria Vs. Kia Carnival — Two Can Play This Game

The demand for full-size Multi-Purpose Vehicles (MPVs) in Pakistan is quite small. As a result, only a few large MPVs have ever been launched here.

Recently, Lucky Motor Corporation Limited (LMCL) debuted the Kia Carnival in Pakistan. The enthusiasts praised the MPV’s futuristic design and modern features which also helped its sales.

Hyundai Nishat has thrown in the ‘brand-spanking-new’ Staria MPV to the mix.  It is also incredibly futuristic-looking and promises impressive features, which begs the question — can it break the monopoly of Kia Carnival?

Let us have a thorough look at both vehicles and find out:

Exterior Styling

Kia Carnival

The latest model, while still a minivan, carries a lot of influence from the SUV design. With a slightly longer wheelbase and shorter front and rear overhangs, the vehicle looks much more poised and aggressive for an MPV.

The front now features a longer and straighter nose. It also has Kia’s patented ‘Tiger Face’ front grill which spans across its width, sleek new headlights with Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) integrated into the sides of the front grill, a large and beefy bumper with a silver trim piece for a fine finish.
