Kia Carens Will Be Rs 70,000 Costlier
The Kia Carens have only been on the market for a few months in India, but the MPV has already generated a lot of interest. So much so that several Carens versions now have five-month waiting lists.
Kia has hiked the costs of the MPV’s whole range, phasing out the initial rate. According to dealer sources, the Carens basic model might take up to 10 months to arrive in some areas.
There are two petrol and one diesel engine options for the Carens. A 115hp 1.5-liter normally aspirated engine and a more powerful 140hp 1.4-liter turbocharged engine are among the fuel options. The 1.5-liter diesel engine produces 115 horsepower.
All three engines come standard with a 6-speed manual transmission, with the turbo-petrol and diesel engines also having the option of an automatic transmission — a 7-speed DCT and a 6-speed torque converter, respectively.
Premium, Prestige, Prestige Plus, Luxury, and Luxury Plus are the five trim levels available for the Kia Carens. Basics like AC vents for all three rows and a one-touch electric-assisted tumble feature for the second-row seat are standard on all models. The top-spec variant, on the other hand, comes with a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with linked car technology, keyless entry, cruise control, automatic temperature control, heated front seats, wireless phone charging, and a rear-view camera.
