Kia Corporation has released sketches of the Kia Carens, which is set to have its global premiere in Gurugram on December 16, 2021. Key highlights of the Kia Carens are luxurious interiors, smart connectivity features, bold exteriors and generous space for all occupants including the third row ones.

Kia says the “Carens has been designed keeping in mind the evolved, unmet needs of modern Indian families who want to enjoy commuting together.”

The Kia Carens debuts the company’s new ‘Opposites United’ design philosophy in India, which “takes inspiration from the contrasts found in nature and humanity”. The exterior boasts high-tech styling details, including Kia’s unique Tiger Face design at the front, highlighted intake grille, LED headlamps, and daytime running lights (DRLs). The SUV-like side profile has a muscular stance.

The interior is designed to meet mobility lifestyle needs and daily usage in India. The wraparound dash design depicts a future-oriented image while giving an impression of wide and luxurious cabin. The chrome garnish applied to the doors enhances the overall premium feel. The 10.25-inch Audio Video Navigation Telematics (AVNT) is located at the centre of the dash, offering a modern ambience.

“The Kia Carens perfectly embodies our latest design philosophy, ‘Opposites United’, and it successfully combines sportiness with a sophisticated personality and style with unique aesthetics,” said Karim Habib, Senior Vice President and Head of Kia Design Center. “The Kia Carens is a true reflection on what today’s customers want from their three-row vehicles.”
