Kia prepares to show off new Carens at Paris
Wednesday 25 July 2012
Kia has announced that it will launch the latest Carens at the Paris Motor Show.
The current version of the Carens, Kia's small-to-medium-sized people-carrier, is a solid enough effort but has had the misfortune of being over-shadowed by the company's star car of recent times, the first-generation cee'd, which was launched almost immediately after it and hogged all the glory.
Now, though, it looks as though the Carens might be able to grab a bit of the limelight for itself; early teaser pictures for the new model suggests that it has much lower, sleeker shape than the old one and Kia says it also has a longer wheelbase, which bodes well for interior space.
Kia has made huge strides since the last Carens was introduced, so expect the new one to be a much more serious rival for cars such as the Ford C-Max or Volkswagen Touran.
