Love being teased? If so, take a sneaky peek at the preview pictures of the new Kia
Carens. We have to rely on these completely for now, as this multi-purpose vehicle must
remain under wraps before its premier at the Paris Motor Show on September 27th 2012.
What we can tell from the images is that the new Carens is more attractive than the out-
going version. Check-out the sharp front, sculpted sides, and modern rear for proof. It also
has a lower roof, longer wheelbase, and larger wheels than its predecessor. Oh, and this
tease is “conceived around the theme of dynamic space” too. Errrr, what does that mean?
The new Kia Carens is likely to inherit its predecessor's strengths.
As such, this family
workhorse should have plenty of room for five people or seven in certain forms. We also
expect the boot to be cavernous, particularly when the rear seats are folded flat into what
- in high specification guise - should be a nicely finished and well equipped interior. Kia
is capable of producing vehicles that handle properly too, so expect a composed on-
road experience when this little tease finally emerges. Furthermore, Carens prices are
likely to be low and the whole range will be backed-up by an industry leading seven year
manufacture warranty. So, I can hardly wait for the Paris Motor Show. I hate being teased.
