Kia once again surprised the public as they launched the newest member of their family – The All-New Kia Carens – on the 31st of May at Bonifacio Global High Street, Taguig.
Prior to the arrival of the All-New Carens, Kia has teamed up with DreamWorks’ animated film, The Croods, to introduce their newest member in a fun, unique and thematic way.
The All-New Kia Carens is a compact MPV that’s designed and engineered from scratch to meet the needs of modern families. With a design team winning a Gold Star Car Award by Wheels Magazine from Australia for the second consecutive year, as well as four prestigious ‘Red Dot’ design awards, the new Carens prides itself with sleek aerodynamics and a cab-forward design that coalesces contemporary and distinctive exterior styling with a fresh and trendy interior.
Offering customers in the Philippine market a diesel powertrain, up to seven seats and a wide variety of convenience features, the new third-generation Carens is set to draw even more customers to the Kia brand.
The new Kia Carens is a more compact yet more spacious vehicle than its precursor. Its overall height (1,610 mm) is the same as the Kia Soul and is one of the lowest in class, giving the model an especially sporty appearance.
While the new Carens is a family-focused vehicle, driver comfort in every model is assured, owing to the tilt-and-telescopic adjustable steering wheel, height adjustable driver’s seat and the adoption of an organ-type accelerator pedal pivoting on the floor and moving in a way that matches the natural motion of the human foot.
Other things to watch out for are the Kia Carens’ six-speed transmission and the running gear that guarantees to deliver responsive handling, excellent straight-line stability, and exceptional ride quality and refinement on a wide variety of surfaces.
