Kia Carnival achieves 5 stars after another round of updates

The leading independent vehicle safety advocate, the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP), has released a 5 star safety rating for the updated Kia Carnival following several safety-related improvements to the popular people mover.

The 2016 safety rating applies to all variants of the Kia Carnival manufactured from December 2015. Kia Carnival V6 petrol variants built prior to this date retain a 4 star ANCAP safety rating.

“After a disappointing 4 star result for the Carnival in March last year, Kia has worked to implement a number of safety improvements which have seen the vehicle reach the 5 star mark,” ANCAP Chief Executive Officer James Goodwin said.

“A number of design changes to the Carnival have seen the score in the frontal offset test increase substantially and consumers should feel confident the updated vehicle offers significant improvements to safety,” he said.

The frontal offset crash test result increased from 10.48 to 14.29 points out of 16.

“There continued to be some issues with intrusion into the driver’s foot well area and pedal movement however, the risk was reduced compared to the previously tested model,” Mr Goodwin said.

The Kia Carnival is the first model to meet ANCAP’s 2016 requirements and be awarded a 2016 datestamped safety rating.

ANCAP is supported by all Australian and New Zealand motoring clubs, the Australian Government, the New Zealand Government, Australian state and territory governments, the Victorian Transport Accident Commission, NRMA Insurance and the FIA Foundation.
