The Carens MPV is available in five trims with choice of three engines

Kia debuted the Carens towards the end of 2021 but only recently announced the introductory prices for its MPV offering. It is available in five variants and with three engines: two petrol and one diesel. The Carens enters the segment as a premium model with a range of premium features.

Premium

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

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

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

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

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