Paris Motor Show 2012: Kia unveils new Carens

A new Peter Schreyer styled Kia Carens compact 7-seater MPV has been revealed at the Paris Motor Show, almost completing Kia's new look range. All but the Sedona large MPV now share the distinctive and very attractive Kia family look. It goes on sale in Spring 2013.

Completely new from the ground up, the new Carens is designed and engineered to meet the needs of modern families.  Built on an all-new platform, it delivers stylish, spacious practicality, with sleek aerodynamics, a cab-forward design, long wheelbase and up to seven seats. 

"The new Carens builds on the family-friendly versatility and functionality of its predecessor, and features more athletic and visually dynamic design," says Hyoung-Keun Lee, Vice Chairman and CEO, Kia Motors Corporation.  "This marks a dramatic shift forward for our MPV contender and brings the model in line with Kia's distinctive current design direction."

Appealing to families with an active lifestyle who don't want to compromise between style and practicality, Kia is confident that the all-new third-generation Carens will attract a new group of consumers to Kia showrooms around the world.

Alongside the new Carens on the Kia stand is the all-new Pro_Cee'd, also making its world premiere. They are joined by two models making their European debuts in Paris - the new 2.0-litre Optima Hybrid saloon promising a unique blend of performance and economy, and the new Sorento SUV with an all-new 2.4-litre 192PS GDI engine option.
