One of the grilles will have a horizontal design with chrome inserts delivering an elegant look with a more premium finish. On the other side, the second grille design will be an aggressive, SUV-style grille with dual color tones.

This part will be featuring a faux skid plate, L-shaped fog lamp housing and A-shaped cut-out for slim lower intake. The rear bumper also showcases a faux skid plate along with sleeker light reflector housing. The new upcoming next-gen Carnival features sleeker headlamps with daytime running light flow in order to form the border of the radiator grille and has a single full-width tail-light instead of conventional separate tail-lights coming in the current model.
