These two MPVs are the only choice people have if they wish to buy a premium MPV around this price range.
In this interesting video, we get to watch Toyota Innova Hycross and Kia Carnival owners having discussions about each others’ cars. This is a great way to know about the pros and cons of each of these MPVs. Someone who has lived with the car is the best person to know the minute details. Therefore, it makes sense to listen to these owners before you opt to go for either of the two. In general, the Carnival is geared toward the higher end of the market compared to the new Innova Crysta.

Innova Hycross and Kia Carnival Owners Debate
The video has been uploaded by Shyam Arora on YouTube. Firstly, let us talk about the Carnival owner who experiences the Innova. He is impressed by the interior but says that there are a lot of hard plastics on the dashboard and door panels, but the features are better since this is the latest car with all the tech and gizmos. There is no sound from the AC. For the second row, he says that it is decent but the sheer space on offer on the Carnival is almost incomparable to any other car. The seat comfort is good. In terms of driving, he feels that the steering is light and the engine is smooth.

For the next part, the Innova Hycross owner sits in Carnival and immediately feels the space on offer. The quality of interiors is decent and the storage space around the central armrest is quite impressive. The rear seat comfort is second to none. Also, there is a lot of boot space which is not something you could say about most 3-row cars. In terms of driving, it feels a bit too heavy in city conditions because of the hydraulic steering and the dimensions of the MPV. Moreover, the diesel grunt is there which is not the best for the passengers.

After both these car owners experience each others’ vehicles, the Innova Hycross owner is satisfied with his car and would stick to it. The situation with the Carnival owner is slightly more complicated. He feels that in this current version, if he is not getting discounts, he might not purchase it again. That makes sense since the asking price is already quite high and the new version is not available. Hence, it is a few years old car without the latest tech and features and boasts a large premium over something like an Innova. Also, the Canival comes with a diesel mill while the Innova Hycross has a hybrid engine.
