Not Sure, Which car to buy?

Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    BMW 3 Series

    • Styling. Low, sporty and all things fun! M Sport variant looks delicious.
    • Punchy engines. Pick the petrol or the diesel, both promise to please with performance.
    • Quality. Interior now feels like a scaled-down 5 Series in earnest.

    Kia Carens

    • Looks unique, in a good way.
    • Good presence with generous exterior dimensions
    • Lots of practical elements integrated into the cabin
    • Available in 6- and 7-seater configurations
    • Turbo-petrol and diesel engine options
    • Automatic transmission option with both engines

    BMW 3 Series

    • Silly feature omissions: 360° camera, keyless entry, Android Auto - all missing.
    • Low seating and tight kneeroom means it’s less than ideal for the chauffeur-driven.
    • Most of the 480-litre boot is taken up by the spare wheel.

    Kia Carens

    • Missing some premium features
    • Looks more like an MPV, than an SUV
    • 16-inch wheels look small on the overall large side profile
