New Kia Carens: preview sketches

Kia has unveiled two preview design sketches of the all-new Carens compact MPV, set to debut at the Paris Motor Show.


Compared to the current Carens, unveiled in 2006 and featuring a boxy, not up-to-date design, the new model has a more modern, dynamic and sculpted body.

Among the characterizing design elements are the cab-forward design, with a lower roofline, longer wheelbase, larger wheels (up to 18-inch) and chrome beltline accents.

According to Kia, the new model “will combine sporty looks with spacious functionality and an emotional appeal that is becoming a regular feature of Kia products.”
