India, one of the fastest-growing carmakers in the country, rolled out the
first customer car of the three-row recreational vehicle, the Kia Carens, from
its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh.
Kia Carens is the latest 'Made-in-India' offering from the company, which
combines the sophistication of a family mover and the sportiness of an SUV in
one to make it a compelling value proposition and the best choice for modern
Indian families. Furthermore, the Kia Carens is all set to create a segment of
its own. The Kia Carens has been tested across multiple terrains, and simulated
conditions before the company announced the mass production of the car.
Carens will be manufactured in India and will be exported to over 80 countries.
Following the world premiere in December, the Kia Carens will be officially
launched in February 2022.
on the occasion, Tae-Jin Park, Managing Director and CEO, Kia India, said, “We
are all about inspiration at Kia, and with the Kia Carens, we bring to the
table a whole new set of value propositions aligning with requirements of the
new-age customer. I am very excited about the beginning of this new journey.
The Kia Carens is the fourth product we are rolling out in India. Our teams
have worked tirelessly to bring out a product that truly reflects and resonates
with modern Indian families. When
customers think of a Kia, they expect best-in-class features, distinct
design identity, and unmatched ownership experience– which is truly reflected
in the Carens.”
Kia Carens comes in petrol and diesel powertrains combined with multiple
transmission options, including the 7DCT and 6AT. The car also comes equipped
with a host of features such as the next-generation Kia Connect app with 66
connected features, flexible seating options, features such as the Sliding Type
Seat Under Tray, Retractable Seatback Table, the Rear Door Spot Lamp, and the
Bottle and Gadget Holder in the third row. The vehicle also offers generous
space in the third row, making it a complete family car. The Kia Carens comes
equipped with the Robust 10 Hi-Safety package as standard across all trims,
including 6 airbags ABS, ESC, VSM, Hill Assist, DBC to name a few, making it
one of the safest vehicles on Indian roads.
