KIA Carnival MUV Real-World Mileage Review - Kitna Deti hain
OUR CAR EXPERT : KIA CARNIVAL MILEAGE REVIEW
KIA has been on a roller coaster ride in India after the success of the Seltos. It won the hearts of the Indian car buyers but the focus of KIA is only being a more premium car-maker. That has been shown by the second product of KIA in India. It is the Carnival which was launched at the Auto Expo and is the most expensive car that KIA makes. It is also in a unique segment with no rivals at this price point. The Innova Crysta is much smaller and cheaper while the Carnival is much more premium in terms of luxury. While we have earlier spoken about the luxury and comfort, here we will talk about the mileage.
Mileage is something everybody wants to know because it enables a car to be a long distance cruiser. If a luxury car or a premium MPV has good mileage, it will be a good long distance car requiring less fill ups. The Carnival is powered by a 2.2l diesel engine which makes 200 bhp and 440Nm of torque. The gearbox is a 8-speed torque converter automatic and that is the only option with no manual being there. That is a good thing as the Carnival with this automatic is smooth and easy to drive. The Carnival is a big car and a relaxed automatic is what the car needs. The engine is enough to get the Carnival moving and it gets to big speeds easily with excellent high speed stability.
Now we are talking about mileage and here the official figure is 13.9 kmpl and that is decent for the size of the Carnival.
However what is in the real world mileage of KIA Carnival?
In stop go traffic it is single digits with 8-9 kmpl in the city. Drive it harder and it will drop further. During steady cruise, it will give around 10-11 kmpl in the highway. For such a massive car, a 10 kmpl mileage is pretty decent. In comparison an Innova also gives around 10-12 kmpl. Thus in standard driving conditions and keeping a steady throttle input will give you efficiency figures near the official of the Carnival plus despite the size, the efficiency is pretty good!
