Which used Kia Carens MPV should I buy?
We’d suggest you go for one of the diesel examples instead of a petrol one because they offer lower running costs and their greater torque copes with transporting seven people better. The lower-powered 114bhp version has the best fuel economy, but the 139bhp car isn’t that far off and is better for those who often travel on the motorway.
Every Carens comes with plenty of standard kit, but it’s 2 specification that offers the best value for money because it adds rear parking sensors, auto lights and wipers, privacy glass and power folding mirrors. If you go for the same trim in a post-facelift Carens from 2017 onwards, you get even more equipment, including a 7.0in infotainment system with sat-nav, a rear reversing camera and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.
