New Delhi: Kia India Kia Motor India is going to launch the new Karens MPV in our market very soon, for which the company has started booking from today. The Kia Carence can be booked by paying a token amount of Rs 25,000 and the company will launch this car in India in the coming few days. The estimated price of this MPV coming in 6 and 7-seater arrangement is Rs 16-18 lakh. In order to make the Kia Carens a cost-effective vehicle, the company has given a lot of features with it, so that this MPV will emerge as a strong option. In this news, we are telling you about the great features of Cairns, whose information has come to the fore recently.
Single-pane sunroof and rooftop AC vents
While almost all three-row cars are offered with a panoramic sunroof as of today, Kia has offered a single-pane sunroof with the Cairns. The reason for this is that AC vents have been installed on the roof for the passengers sitting in the second and third row on its roof. Kia believes that these AC vents are going to give much better cooling to the previous passengers.
Turbo-Petrol Engine, DCT with Paddle Shifters
The strongest of the three engine options available with the Kia Carence is the 1.4-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine that makes 140 horsepower and is mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox with a 6-speed manual. Its DCT variant comes with paddle shifters. In comparison, this feature is available only in the diesel variants of Mahindra Marazzo, while the petrol variants of Ertiga and XL6 come with paddle shifters.
Highest wheelbase and strong safety features
Kia India offers the highest wheelbase of this class with the carence, which is 2,780 mm. This simply means that the passengers will get a lot of space in the cabin of the MPV. 6 airbags, hill start assist, hill hold assist, TPMS and disc brakes are going to be available on all four wheels with the carence. Please note that 6 airbags are not available with any other vehicle in this class.

The interior of the Carens exceeds the premium
The Kia Carens will be offered with 64-colour ambient lighting, which will change the atmosphere of the MPV, a feature that is usually seen in luxury cars. Apart from this, an effective cabin air purifier has also been provided in the cabin of the car, which has become a big need in the era of this epidemic. Apart from all this, the company has made the MPV very good in terms of interior and the quality of the material used in it is also strong.
