Hello everyone. Just wanted to say hi from Brunei! Unfortunately there is not much information about Carnival owners on this side of the world. So this forum have been a huge help with everyone sharing their knowledge and experience owning the car. Thanx!

Brunei salesman helped with installing the sidestep and window visor. Both are sought after accessories on this side of the world.

Wow! This is very unique (and more attractive) compared to the U.S. version. It also has a lot more features, running boards, exhaust tips, an additional lower brake light, and the front grill looks more aggressive on the lower portion. Cool Carnival!

Thanx. However, we also are missing some features which are standard in the US like the digital instrument cluster. We only have the analog odometers even on the highest spec carnival. Also no blind spot indicator/sensor which is standard in almost every other KIA model. Win some and lose some I guess :confused:

Welcome to the forums! It’s great to see non US models and the differences. What led you to purchase a Carnival?
Thank you for the welcome. I actually owned the pervious generation carnival. Family was growing and with 2 kids, the carnival ticked every box I wanted from an "MPV" aka van. That was 3 years ago and now with the new generation model, KIA really made a step up in terms of design, build quality and technology on offer. However what I missed from the previous gen carnival are the extra storage spaces and cubby holes! It had drawers and extra storage (for toys and hotwheels) which are missing from the current generation. I guess the current one is designed for families with grown-up kids with iPads and not hotwheels.:ROFLMAO:

congrats great to see another fellow Bruneian here, too bad lah inda dpt all those safety features such as BSM which Sorento has. I heard from Australians that RHD variants are affected (not enough time to make the conversion) because of covid. Btw, your carnival ada clunking noise msa turning the steering wheel?
