Kia India has unveiled teaser sketches of Kia Carens, a premium and sophisticated model, which is poised to create a new class of recreational vehicles in India with its world premiere date on December 16. Kia Carens debuts the company’s new design philosophy ‘Opposites United’ in India, while targeting modern Indian families.
“The Kia Carens perfectly embodies our latest design philosophy, ‘Opposites United’, and it successfully combines sportiness with a sophisticated personality and style with unique aesthetics,” said Karim Habib, Senior Vice President and Head of Kia Design Center.
The Kia Carens has been designed keeping in mind the evolved, unmet needs of modern Indian families who want to enjoy commuting together, the company said in a statement.
“The bold design language takes inspiration from the contrasts found in nature and humanity. This design philosophy is based on five strong pillars. Bold for nature, Joy for reason, Power to progress, Technology for life, and Tension for serenity. Carens’ design is based on the ‘Bold for Nature’ theme and pays homage to nature’s perfection and simplicity while connecting to the brand’s new design direction,” Kia says.
Personifying youthfulness in its character, Kia Carens comes with luxurious interiors, smart connectivity features, bold exteriors and generous space for all occupants, including even the third row ones, the company says.
The exterior boasts high-tech styling features - Kia’s unique Tiger Face design at the front, strikingly highlighted intake grille, LED headlamps, and daytime running lights (DRLs). The SUV-like side profile takes a muscular stance and further underlines the strong yet refined style of the vehicle, the company claims.
Kia explains - the interior is designed to meet mobility lifestyle needs and daily usage preference in India. The high-tech wraparound dash design depicts a future-oriented image while giving an impression of wide and luxurious cabin. The chrome garnish applied to the doors enhances the overall premium feel. The 10.25-inch Audio Video Navigation Telematics (AVNT) is located at the center of the dash, offering a modern ambience.
“The Kia Carens is a true reflection on what today’s customers want from their three-row vehicles,” Habib added.
The company said that Kia Carens will debut in Gurugram, India, on 16 December. The world premiere of the Kia Carens can be watched digitally viahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISzBqlf7o2k.
