Kia Motors has introduced the 2023 Kia Carens in India, with a starting price of Rs 10.45 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The most recent version of the South Korean MPV now has an all-new powertrain and a few other changes to meet upcoming emission regulations.
Starting with the engine, the 2023 Kia Carens MPV replaces the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a new 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine that is not only more powerful but also meets the upcoming BS6 Phase 2 and RDE emission regulations.
This new powertrain produces 157.8bhp peak power and 253Nm torque, which is about 20bhp and 11Nm more than the previous 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine. While the 7-speed DCT is still available, the 6-speed manual transmission has been replaced by a 6-speed iMT.
A 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine with 113bhp peak power and 144Nm peak torque is also available, as is a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine with 114bhp peak power and 250Nm peak torque. Furthermore, both engines meet upcoming regulations.
Furthermore, the diesel engine loses its 6-speed manual transmission in favour of a new 6-speed iMT gearbox. Customers can also select a 6-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, the base petrol engine is now only available with a 6-speed manual transmission.
In terms of features, Kia has made the 12.5-inch digital instrument cluster standard across all variants, which was previously only available on the Prestige trim. Other features include a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple Car Play and Android Auto, UVO-connected car technology, a BOSE sound system, and more.
6 airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability programme (ESP), vehicle stability control (VSC), brake assist systems (BAS), Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), ISOFIX Mounts, hill-hold assistance, all-wheel disc brakes, and other safety features are included.
The new 157.8bhp, 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine is the most talked-about feature of the 2023 Kia Carens. As a result, we anticipate that the model will be a very appealing option for enthusiasts with large families.
