What used Kia Carens MPV will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Kia Carens MPV?

The Carens is cheap to buy and cheap to run. Kia's dealers are among the least expensive for labour rates according to Warranty Direct, and replacement parts for the Carens are also very affordable.

The petrol engines return economy in the low to mid-30s, so they're below average for the class on fuel consumption, while the diesel can manage up to 43mpg. All models fall into insurance group 8 or 9, depending on the size of the engine.

You may want to budget for an aftermarket alarm, as none of the Carens range has one as standard. However, all come with breakdown assistance for the first three years of their lives.
