What's the used Kia Carens MPV like?

There's nothing fancy about the Kia Carens - it's simply a low-cost way of transporting five or six people in reasonable comfort. The 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0-litre petrol engines are not especially refined, particularly when compared with a lot of the European and Japanese competition, and the 2.0-litre turbodiesel is not the most powerful or frugal.

There's also plenty of noise in the cabin courtesy of the engine, wind and road, so longer trips can be a trial of endurance.
