It is the third generation of Kia's MPV since 1999, again usable as a seven-seater, but for 750 euros extra. Otherwise the cheapest Carens is placed at just under 20,000 euros. Unfortunately, you can't get exactly what you want, have to take combinations such as roof rails and seat heating. After all, the panorama roof for almost 1,000 euros is available separately.
Four aquipment variants don't make the buyer the decisions easy. After final decision, you own a quite well-made car with a lot of space inside and a flat floor, if needed. Compared to its predecessor, it has become even a bit shorter, but increased in the wheelbase.
For the VW Touran on the market since 2010, it is a real competitor. After all, VW has now a new model now. The Kia would be the one with the largest luggage compartment, it there were not the Touran with more load height. When it's about the price, the Kia wins clearly, especially with seven years warranty. But its entry-level engine is losing a lot. Inspite of direct injection a down-sized naturally aspirated engine in a van is no longer up-to-date.
Good for those who needs a car for more kilometers and can therefore access to one of the two diesel engines. The modern design of the Carens you see in a video of 2016 above and below 10 times briefly and with some humor other advantages of the car. 04/16
