For the unchanged base price of 20.000 Euro is now the lifted Kia Carens can be ordered. The compact van with up to seven seats was visually reworked on the outside and inside, in addition to new assistants such as blind spot and cross traffic warnings. In addition, the smartphone connections Apple Car Play and Android Auto are now available. Unchanged will be the Carens either with a 99 kW / 135 PS strong petrol or the 1,7-liter diesel in the power levels 85 kW / 115 PS and 104 kW / 141 PS to have. The basic equipment includes air conditioning, cruise control and audio system.
The Carens had it particularly heavy in the battered Van segment. Over the course of the year, new registrations fell by 21 percent year-on-year to just under 2.000 vehicles. The entire van market shrank in the same period by 0,4 percent on just 200.000 cars. (Holger Holzer / SP-X)
