Kia Enriches Carens’ UK Lineup with New Top Edition

Following the UK market launch of its new generation Carens in the beginning of the month, Kia has enhanced the lineup of its compact minivan with a new top of the line trim model dubbed ’3 Sat Nav’, which is now available for customers to order in dealerships.

If you’re familiar with Kia’s trim range naming strategy (1, 2 and 3), the name of the new edition is pretty much self-explanatory.

It is based on the high spec ‘3’ model that comes with leather seats, dual zone climate control, full length panoramic sunroof and a bevy of safety features, adding a seven-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system and an upgraded seven-speaker audio system integrated into the center console.

Kia notes that the new audio system also includes an eight-channel external amplifier and sub-woofer along with the AUX, USB and iPod connectivity.

On the road prices for the new Carens ‘3 Sat Nav’, which is available exclusively with the 1.7-liter CRDi diesel unit delivering 134bhp and paired to a 6-speed manual transmission, start at £24,845, with the metallic paint option charged at £495.
