The Kia Carens still puts the fun into functionality, but from late 2016 enjoys even more style and technology than ever
The Kia Carens is ideal for an active family life on the road. Still with seven seats and an interior that has been designed to make light of everyday motoring, the new Carens boasts updated styling for a bold and distinctive look and an interior ambience that makes it even more of a joy to live with. Improving the MPV’s excellent functionality even further, safety and connectivity features have also been introduced or improved. The Kia Carens is now even more perfectly suited for an active family life.

But it’s not simply a higher quality look and feel for the new Kia Carens. Both 7.0- and 8.0-inch touchscreen interfaces with navigation are available, along with Kia Connected Services powered by TomTom® and rear-view parking camera. The new infotainment system also incorporates Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for full smartphone integration, while a new JBL® Premium Sound system, which features a subwoofer, external amplifier and six speakers, is available on selected models.
