New Kia Carens makes global debut in Spain - Kia Motors Australia (867 words)
Consumer clinics with Carens prototypes confirmed that a significant percentage of today’s compact MPV customers in many parts of the world would welcome a larger vehicle that could seat up to seven people – provided that any increase in overall length was kept to a modest level.
Kia is offering European Carens customers a choice of one diesel engine and one gasoline engine (both Euro4 compliant), with manual gearboxes or automatic transmissions, so they can choose the power train that best suits their motoring needs.
Kia expects the New Carens to be a high-volume seller and targets sales of 150,000 units globally in 2007.
