The MPV segment in the country has just welcomed a new remember in the form of the Toyota Innova Hycross. While it's a very promising vehicle, one cannot overlook the fact that the Kia Carnival too is a very premium offering in the segment. Let's take a look at how these 2 MPVs compete against each other on paper.

Toyota Innova Hycross Vs Kia Carnival: Dimensions and Designs

The Toyota Innova Hycross is still recognizable as an Innova but with quite a bit more of an SUV-like theme. It sits 4,755mm long, 1,850mm wide and 1,795mm tall. While the Kia Carnival is 5115mm long, 1985mm wide and 1755mm tall.

The bodywork of the Innova Hycross sees more creases than before along the sides and on the bonnet, although the functional boxy shape and large glass area continue in a more refined, again SUV-themed manner with the large 18-inch wheel. The flat MPV-style boot lid has been replaced with again more SUV-like design cues like the slated windscreen and beefed-up bumpers, the two-part taillamps are now very similar to Toyota's other SUVs.

The Kia Carnival has body-coloured bumpers, sleek LED headlights, ice cube LED fog lamps, shark fin antennas, and other features. It also has the company's characteristic tiger-nose grille with chrome inserts.

Toyota Innova Hycross Vs Kia Carnival: Powertrains

The Hycross uses a 2.0-litre Atkinson cycle petrol motor that puts out 154PS and 190 Nm that pairs with a 113PS and 206 Nm electric motor with an e-CVT in the mix for a combined 186PS. The Innova Hycross will be a petrol-only offering for the first time now and lower-spec models could get a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol with 174PS and 202 Nm, again paired with a CVT.

The Kai Carnival will continue to feature the 2.2-litre CRDi diesel motor that makes 200PS and 440 Nm of torque and will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Toyota Innova Hycross Vs Kia Carnival: Features

The Innova Hycross' interior looks like a more contemporary space with a flat horizontal design, a large free-standing 10-inch touchscreen with a slim panel to AC control and a dash-mounted gear lever. The instrument cluster is new too with a new 7-inch MID as is the steering wheel. The interior is done up in a brown and black colour theme with silver highlights.

There are seven and eight-seater seating configurations with the second-row seats being available with leg rests. The third-row space has also been enhanced. The features list has been significantly enhanced with a panoramic sunroof, cooled seats, powered driver's seat, ambient light, electronic parking brake, wireless charging, four USB C-ports, second-row climate control, auto-hold, electronic parking brake, connected tech, rear sun shades and drive modes. The Toyota Safety Sense ADAS functions have been added.

Over and beyond the Prestige trim, the all-new Limousine variant of the redesigned Kia Carnival comes with a slew of premium amenities. Luxury 2nd row VIP seats, premium Nappa leather, a 10.1-inch dual touchscreen rear-seat entertainment system, a smart pure air purifier and a smart power tailgate are some of the new additional features.

The fully equipped Limousine Plus variant hosts additional features like Harman Kardon premium 8-speaker sound system, electronic parking brake, 10-way power driver seat, driver seat ventilation, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, premium wood garnish and Highline TPMS.

The Kia Carnival now comes standard with 18-inch Crystal Cut Alloy Wheels on all trim levels, emphasising the vehicle's commanding appearance. Prestige, Limousine, and Limousine+ will now have Premium Leatherette Seats (with VIP Seats). The bolsters of the redesigned Carnival's VIP seats have exquisite diamond-shaped quilting, which provides more support, comfort, and enhances the overall appearance.
