The Kia Carens is a seven-seat MPV that has been engineered for a combination of space, comfort, and versatility. As a family vehicle, it is capable of managing the demands of daily life, while also holding the potential for the most adventurous journey.
The body of the Carens is shorter and narrower than previous models, but features an increased wheelbase which allows for a still more spacious interior. The exterior styling emphasises the vehicle's sporty nature, with a wide and sharply contoured bumper giving a dynamic visual impression. Including body-coloured exterior door handles which highlight the overall shape of the vehicle, while higher trim levels allow for stylish chrome door handles to match the chrome window surrounds. The Kia's distinctive 'tiger nose' chrome front grille sits between the wide headlights, giving the Carens a characteristic presence on the road.
The interior of the Carens has comfort as its priority. The cabin is formed from the highest quality materials, and has an ergonomic design from Kia to ensure that the Carens experience offers the ultimate in comfort.
The steering wheel and the gear shift are leather-trimmed, and air conditioning is included as standard. The seats of the Carens can be folded and lowered in a high number of combinations, providing a maximum of 1,650 litres for storage and luggage. Bluetooth® with voice recognition and music streaming is also included, allowing for hands-free mobile phone calls to be taken safely within the vehicle.
Two diesel engines and one petrol unit are available, you can choose between six-speed automatic and manual transmission. The less powerful 1.7 litre diesel unit delivers combined fuel economy of 60.1mpg and low CO2 emissions of just 124g/km, with its more powerful counterpart delivering maximum torque of 329Nm, along with economy figures that are nearly as impressive (56.4mpg and 132g/km). The petrol engine, meanwhile, offers 133bhp as well as refinement to match its diesel counterparts.
Kia is uncompromising when it comes to safety features, with six airbags featured as standard to protect the driver and all passengers. Vehicle Stability Management works with the Motor Driven Power Steering to ensure the vehicle is stable during braking and cornering, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) enables the driver to have control of the vehicle at all times, even during unexpected or hazardous driving conditions. A reversing camera is also integrated into the dashboard, and combines with reversing sensors to create consistently safe parking situations.
