Why skip the Carens Luxury?

The Luxury trim is not available with an automatic transmission and the premium over the previous variant feels a bit steep. For a fully loaded experience of the Kia Carens combined with the convenience of an automatic gearbox with both petrol and diesel engines, you should be looking at the top-spec variant instead.

Variant

Verdict

Premium

Well-equipped for safety but lacks other basics, preferable to skip to the next variant.

Prestige

Best variant with the 1.5-litre petrol-manual, worth considering on a tight budget.

Prestige Plus

Recommended for premium features that add value for the price. It is also the entry-level petrol-automatic option.

Luxury

All the premium comforts you’d need but for a steep premium.

Luxury Plus

Buy for 6-seater layout and choice of diesel-automatic.
