Kia Carens 2013 price and specs announced

The all-new Kia Carens MPV will cost from £17,895 when it goes on sale next month

Prices and specifications for the all-new Kia Carens MPV have been announced, starting from £17,895 on the road.

The Carens will be available to buy from 1 May, with the entry-level ‘1’ specification getting a 133bhp 1.6-litre GDi petrol engine. All cars come with seven seats, LED daytime running lights, electric and heated door mirrors, air-conditioning and cruise control, as well as electric rear windows, and Bluetooth and iPod connectivity. The same spec is available with the 114bhp 1.7-litre CRDi diesel engine, which is capable of returning 60mpg and costs £19.295.

Mid-specification ‘2’ cars add 16-inch alloy wheels, tinted rear windows and chrome trim. Rain-sensing wipers, electrically folding mirrors, rear parking sensors, and separate driver and front passenger climate-controls are also standard. Petrol models cost from £19,195, while the 114bhp diesel starts at £20,595. In addition, the ‘2’ is available with a high-power 134bhp diesel engine and automatic gearbox that’s priced from £21,995.

Completing the range is the flagship ‘3’ specification. This is only available with the more powerful diesel engine and manaual gearbox, and costs £23,895. Standard equipment mirrors the ‘2’, but adds 17-inch alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, heated leather seats and rear-seat sunblinds. A reversing camera and a special front wiper de-icing system are also included.

The new Kia Carens also features Brake Assist, which helps apply the brakes to ensure maximum braking efficiency in a sudden stop. Vehicle Stability Management is also standard, working with the car’s Electronic Stability Control to adjust the amount of steering assistance needed in an emergency.

As with all new Kias, the Carens comes with the company’s industry-leading 100,000-mile warranty, covering the car for the first seven years of ownership. It’s also available with Kia’s Care-3 all-inclusive servicing package, which covers the car for three or five years, for £329 or £609 respectively.
