The Kia Carens is radically changing in style. Reduced dimensions, apart from the wheel base which is longer, more contemporary lines, more generous and better thought-out interior space, this model can accommodate up to seven persons thanks to a third row of seats which can be folded away under the floor. The Carens has a more robust structure and more generous equipment. The speed regulator and limiter as standard for instance, automatic parking, lane deviation alarm, xenon lights… Where engines are concerned, the 1.7 CRDI makes its appearance in 115 and 136 bhp versions, with stop&start. P-Tronic already has an additional box unit suited to this engine. The more powerful of the two can be allied to an automatic gearbox with steering wheel paddles, the basic model receiving a 6-speed manual box. Two petrol engines will also be on offer.
