The 2014 Kia Carens has just been launched in the UAE. The small minivan-type people-carrier car thingy is the latest model to get the new corporate styling.
The new Carens can be had with a 132 hp 1.6-litre in LX and EX trim, or a 150 hp 2.0-litre in LX and two EX trims. All models get a 6-speed automatic, front-wheel-drive, fog lamps, cooled glovebox, CD/MP3 stereo, Bluetooth, roof rack and keyless entry. Base models get 16-inch steel wheels and a vinyl steering wheel. Higher trim levels get 17-inch alloy wheels, leatherette-wrapped steering wheel, parking sensors, cruise control and more. Only the top model gets a panoramic glass roof.
All models get ABS and only one airbag, except for the top model, which gets two front airbags to go with that glass roof.
Interestingly, prices start at Dhs 65,000 and top out at only Dhs 75,000, as per what we’re told.
