Kia has recently announced the official price list for the Carens MPV in the United Kingdom, which is now available from 17,985 GBP.
According to the South Korean based automaker, the new Kia Carens is actually smaller in height and in width than the model it’s replacing, but it has a longer wheelbase and lower seats, which means that the space in the cabin has increased. The new Kia Carens is undercutting some of its rivals like the Ford Grand C-Max or the Renault Grand Scenic, and the model is now available to its future customers in the UK from 17,985 GBP, with its class-leading 7-year warranty and the Care-3 servicing pack, covering the first three years of ownerships for 329 GBP.
The entry-level Kia Carens is using a 1.6 liter petrol engine, which is producing a total output of 133 BHP and 165 Nm of torque, mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The model is getting stop/start technology and the fuel economy stands at 44.1 mpg while the CO2 emissions stop at 149 g/km. The diesel units are using a 1.7 liter engine, and they are coming in two outputs, with 114 BHP and 260 Nm of torque, priced at 19,295 GBP, which is returning 50 mpg and emitting 124 g/km of CO2, and the 134 BHP and 330 Nm of torque, mated to an automatic six-speed transmission.
