Engine & Power of Kia Grand Carnival:
The third generation of Grand Carnival is run by a 3470 cc 3.5 liters DOHC 24 valve V6 engine that generates a horsepower of 270 hp at 6400 rpm and torque of 330 Nm at 5000 rpm. It offers an eight-speed automatic transmission only. It moves with an amazingly gracious sense of ease despite its big and heavy size because of its silky smooth acceleration and cruising manners. The suspension of the minivan is no doubt kept very smooth keeping rough stuff away and letting you cruise around the town nicely. The cabin is very quiet keeping the outside noises and engine noises out of the cabin and letting you enjoy your ride even in a noise-free ambient even at 100 kilometers per hour. Handling of the car is very decent managing its heavyweight at high speeds but stability control will be at risk when carving corners at a fair bit of speed. Grand Carnival becomes a bit thirsty when driving in bad city traffic and provides not more than 4.5 kilometers per liter but it increases on highways providing 9.9 kilometers per liter.
