ANCAP Safety

The Kia Carnival was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in January 2021. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all variants.

Dual frontal, side head-protecting airbags (first, second & third rows), and side chest-protecting airbags (first row), and a driver knee airbag are standard. A centre airbag to minimise occupant injury in a far-side impact crash is not available.

Autonomous emergency braking (Car-to-Car, Vulnerable Road User and Junction Assist) as well as a lane support system with lane keep assist (LKA), lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK), and an advanced speed assistance system (SAS) are standard on all variants.

A full list of safety features and technologies can be viewed within the Technical Report (see download link).
