Kia is banking on the claim that Carens has the design and drive traits of a premium SUV but with the practicality of an MPV. Relying on its meteoric rise in the Indian car market since its debut here in 2019, Kia has been on a product offensive of sorts in recent times. While Seltos continues to be a volume driver and Sonet fares well in the sub four-metre SUV space, all eyes are now on Carens to build on the successes.

Kia Carens design highlights:

Carens will be made available in as many as eight colour options - Imperial Blue, Moss Brown, Sparkling Silver, Intense Red, Aurora Black Pearl, Gravity Grey, Glacier White Pearl and Clear White.

The vehicle skips the traditional tiger-nose front grille and has an all-new front fascia with sleek LED head lights and integrated DRLs. There is a chrome line in the middle while the front bumper and large air intake grille get three-stack vertically positioned fog lamps and a chrome accent as well. LED lights are at the rear of the car as well while it stands on sporty 16-inch alloy wheels.

Kia Carens cabin highlights:

Being a Kia, Carens comes loaded with a long list of features. The most notable of these is that six airbags would be standard across all variants.
