Spec showdown: Kia Grand Carnival vs. Toyota Innova

Spec showdown: Kia Grand Carnival vs. Toyota Innova

The Kia Grand Carnival boasts a Euro-inspired design accentuated with a restyled "tiger-nose" grille that's the signature of  Kia.

The minivan/MPV gets a high-performance engine and expansive and exquisite interior accentuated by chrome and wood interior accents. 

It also has an electronic stability control (ESC) function that instantaneously controls brake pressure, specifically during specific driving conditions like braking, acceleration, and sudden turns.

Yet how does the Kia Grand Carnival stack up with another MPV, the popular Toyota Innova? This Toyota vehicle emphasizes powerful performance, comfortable seating, an upscale interior, and cutting-edge safety technology.

We pit the Kia Grand Carnival 2.2 EX AT 7-seater and the Toyota Innova 2.8V Diesel A/T variants in a spec battle below.
