As many as 7,738 Kia Carens were booked on January 14, the very first day of reservations. This is the most number of bookings for the carmaker in India, besting the Sonet and the Seltos.

The Kia Carens will be available in five trims: Premium, Prestige, Prestige Plus, Luxury, and Luxury Plus. While the MPV is based on the Hyundai Alcazar, it has a distinctive design. For context, the Alcazar looks more like an extended Creta, but the Carens seems like a blend of an SUV and an MPV.
