While the car that was spied testing was heavily camouflaged, we do expect the Kia Carens to boast an aggressive front fascia. For starters, the car is expected to be offered with a large and dominating tiger nose grille upfront while we may see sharp LED headlamps on either side. The lower half of the bumper may also have a sporty appeal.

Many of the body panels are expected to be shared with the Seltos

The side profile is expected to be largely dominated by machine-cut alloy wheels and the crossover is expected to boast features such as chrome door handles, chrome window garnish, and roof rails. The brand may also equip the Kia Carens with a large sunroof. Moving to the rear, we expect large LED tail lights to be offered along with the even more chorme. Many of the body panels may remind you of the Kia Seltos.

What about the cabin?

Similar powertrain options are expected to be offered with the upcoming Kia 7-seater SUV that power the Kia Seltos. These include a 1.5-L petrol, a 1.5-L diesel, and a 1.4-turbo petrol. Needless to say, all these engines are offered with a manual as well as an automatic gearbox. These engines not only offer impressive performance but in addition to this, also offer commendable refinement levels and fuel efficiency figures. However, more details can only be confirmed once Kia releases official spec sheet.
