Kia has announced details of a range of upgrades to its Carens MPV, to refresh its appearance and functionality, improve in-cabin ambience, and update the safety and connectivity features on offer to buyers.
Kia’s designers have introduced a series of changes to the upgraded Carens, including revised front and rear bumpers, new rear light signature, and an updated ‘tiger-nose’ grille. Buyers can specify a new exterior paint colour, Mysterious Blue, as well as three new designs for 16-, 17- and 18-inch aluminium alloy wheels. Inside, the Carens’ seven-seat cabin adopts new seat upholstery and new metallic and gloss-black accents for a more high-quality interior environment.
The latest version of the Carens is available with Kia’s 7.0 or 8.0-inch touchscreen HMI (human-machine interface) with navigation, as well as Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for full smartphone integration. The Carens adopts a pair of new DRiVE WISE advanced driver assistance systems: Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert; and a Speed Limit Information Function.
Buyers can also specify a new JBL®Premium Sound system for greater audio quality throughout the cabin. The upgraded Kia Carens is now available to order from Kia dealers worldwide.
