Kia Carens unveiled in India; a three-row SUV for larger Families
11 months ago
On Thursday, Kia Carens made its world premiere and after its official launch, it will become the fourth product from Kia after the Seltos, Carnival and Sonet. The three-row Carens from Kia India is designed to appeal to big families that still desire an SUV body style in a car. Kia India will manufacture Carens at the Kia plant in Andhra Pradesh’s Anantpur.
Kia Carens have the Tiger Nose grille that is found on many of its siblings. But there is a clear focus on a confluence of design elements that typically define a recreational vehicle and a conventional SUV. Large wheel arches, chrome garnish, straight lines and LED light technology define the outside.
According to Kia, Carens has the longest wheelbase among three-row SUVs in its segment, resulting in an additional interior room for passengers. On the car’s front fascia, LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, an H-shaped humanity line with elegant chrome trim, and LED fog lamps to flank a massive grille with chrome accents are included.
Kia Carens will be available in Silver, Brown, and Blue in three new colours.
Kia Carens engine and transmission:
Kia Carens will get three drive modes and be powered by both petrol and diesel engine options. There are manual, six-speed automatic and DCT gearbox options.
Kia Carens cabin and features:
There’s lots of storage space for bottles and even an umbrella, and the upholstery is a light mix of beige and indigo. Air fresheners may be hung via a specific clip, and Kia spotlights in the second and third rows add to the experience. A tray with slots for various tech-based gadgets such as tabs and phones is also included in the second row. The vehicle will come with ventilated front seats, a smart air filtration system, and Kia Connect app integration.
For better dispersion of air, the rear AC vents have a diffuser functionality and then there is a one-touch tumble function on the second-row seats for easier in and out for passengers in the last row.
The cabin is enhanced by an all-digital instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and UVO connects capabilities. This car now features an Over-the-Air (OTA) software update option. Another highlight of this vehicle is the BOSE premium sound system, which features eight speakers throughout the interior.
