LDV Mifa 2023: pricing and specs for Kia Carnival rival announced for Australia


The new Mifa will start from $53,990 before on-road costs and will compete with people movers such as the Toyota Granvia  

Say hello to the new LDV Mifa, a seven-seat people mover set to rival the likes of the Kia Carnival and the Toyota Granvia

It’s now on sale here in Australia. An eight-seater version will also be available from early in 2023. 

Three variants will be available for the Mifa, including Mode, Executive and Luxe trims. The entry-level Mode variant will start from $53,990 before on-road costs, while the Executive and Luxe variants will be priced from $63,990 and $72,990 respectively.

That puts the Mifa in very similar territory to the Kia Carnival but at a lower pricing tier than Toyota’s Granvia people mover. 

All Mifas are powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 160kW of power and 360Nm of torque. It’s mated to a eight-speed automatic transmission sourced from Aisin.

The Mifa joins a range of products in Australia including the D90 SUV, T60 Max ute and the Deliver 9 van.

What’s in store for the new LDV Mifa?

On the exterior, the Mifa has a redesigned front end with L-shaped daytime running lights. Several colours are available including metal black, pearl white, dynasty red and mica blue. 

A set of 18-inch alloy wheels are standard on the Mode, while 19-inch alloys are available on Executive and Luxe variants. 

Inside the Mifa, a 2-2-3 seating arrangement is standard, however an eight-seat variant will arrive next year.
