What’s new on the Kia Carens Facelift?

  • for now, only the rear end of the Carens facelift was visible and heavily camouflaged but still, we were able to make certain changes from a distance.
  • Looking at the spy shots, we could say it will feature a redesigned taillamp setup with a new LED pattern as this was the only part left uncovered.
  • Other expected changes include a reworked rear bumper, revised alloy wheels, a brand-new front grille, and a revised headlamp setup.
  • On the mechanical front, it is expected to come with the same 1.5L NA petrol engine pushing 115hp, a 1.5L turbo petrol engine pushing 160hp and a 1.5L diesel mill averaging about 116hp.

  • We can also expect to see a first-in-segment ADAS safety tech.
