Kia Carens receives huge response from Indians
Recently Kia India opened bookings for its upcoming Kia Carens. The car has been booked by nearly eight thousand customers in the first 24 hours since the reservation window was opened by Kia India. Kia Carens is a three-row vehicle that is all set to be the company’s fourth product for India after Seltos, Sonet, and Carnival.
The booking window for Kia Carens was opened. The company informs it received 7,738 bookings within the first 24 hours. The car can be booked for a minimal amount of ?25,000. Kia is planning to launch Carens at some point next month.
It should be noted that Carens is an India-specific model which was first showcased to the world in December. The car will compete in the sub ?20 lakh, three-row vehicle market with Hyundai Alcazar, Tata Safari, and Mahindra XUV700 as its main rivals. Kia is banking on the claim that Carens has the design and drive traits of a premium SUV but with the practicality of an MPV.

Carens will be launched in as many as eight color options – Imperial Blue, Moss Brown, Sparkling Silver, Intense Red, Aurora Black Pearl, Gravity Grey, Glacier White Pearl, and Clear White.

There is a chrome line in the middle while the front bumper and large air intake grille get three-stack vertically positioned fog lamps and a chrome accent as well. LED lights are at the rear of the car as well while it stands on sporty 16-inch alloy wheels.
The Kia Carens come loaded with a long list of features. The most notable of these is that six airbags would be standard across all variants. The car will be offered in six as well as seven-seat layout, the Carens gets large main infotainment and driver display screens as well as ambient lighting, wireless phone charging, sunroof, among other highlights.
The Kia Carens will be available in five trim levels – Premium, Prestige, Prestige Plus, Luxury, and Luxury Plus. The Kia Carens will also be available with petrol as well as diesel engine options with a toss-up between manual and automatic transmission – 6MT, 7DCT, and 6 AT.
