India — After the world premiere teaser appeared for the latest 2022 Kia Carens, this car finally arrived in India, Thursday (16/12/2021). As previously predicted, the latest generation of Carens is no longer a minivan.
At first glance, its appearance is now more directed to a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Even so, the interior is still configured with three rows of passenger seats.
Therefore, the latest Carens 2022 continues to target consumers who need a family car.
The latest safety features are also embedded in the product, which went on sale in early 2022.
“With its bold design, advanced features and industry-leading safety systems, Kia Carens is set to create a completely different new segment and industry benchmark for family cars,” said Ho Sung Song, President and CEO of Kia Corporation.
Flooded with Latest Features
It was explained that Carens was present as Kia’s first product in India to be equipped with the Hi-Secure Safety Package.
It includes six airbag, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Hill Assist Control (HAC), Downhill Brake Control (DBC), Brake Assist System (BAS), Highline TPMS, and disc brakes for all wheels.
Interestingly, these features become standard equipment on all variants.
The manufacturer itself calls this car as recreational vehicle. The reason is, the latest Carens 2022 is designed to be able to meet the mobility needs of its users both on a daily basis or when used on vacation.
“Kia is honored to launch Carens in India, a place where new ideas and innovations emerge. We are confident that Kia Carens will provide a memorable experience for modern families, whether in their daily life or while on vacation,” continued Ho Sung Song.
In a statement, Kia said the new 2022 Carens will be available in a choice of petrol and diesel engines. There are also various transmission options, including 7-speed DCT and 6-speed AT.
In addition to being marketed in India, the manufacturer also said it would market the latest Carens 2022 in a number of selected countries.
