Kia has launched the new Kia Carens MPV ahead of its debut at the 2012 Paris motor show on September 27th. The Carens is based on the latest Kia Ceed.

Kia will offer five- and seven-seat versions of the new Carens: Kai doesn’t have any plans to rename the bigger-capacity MPV, much unlike its rivals the Renault Grand Scenic and Ford Grand C-Max.

Exterior: KIA Carens for 2013 shares the successful new Kia family styling of the current Kia range.

It looks fresh, sleek, cab-forward design, lower roofline, longer wheelbase, larger wheels and chrome beltline accent. The redesigned model features the new “tiger nose” front end and a rear spoiler. With this new design the Carens targets the Ford S-Max in Europe.

Interior: Inside the vehicle is similar to latest Ceed, with similar options.

Engine: It will be available with the 1.6-litre diesel and petrol units; the 1.4 petrol engines may not be offered.

The Kia Carens is built on a new platform. The new Carens has been conceived around the theme ‘dynamic space’. It continues with the design renaissance of the Korean automaker.

Kia did not reveal its future product plans for the Carens on Wednesday, but it is believed that the new Carens replaces the current model and the larger Sedona.

“This marks a dramatic shift forward for our MPV contender and brings the model in line with Kia’s distinctive current design direction,” said Hyoung-Keun Lee, Kia CEO, in a statement.

Earlier Kia shelved its Sedona minivan for the 2013 model year, but is expected to revive it in the U.S. in 2014.

It does on sale in early quarter of 2013. Kia will reveal full pricing and specification details for the new Carens closer to its March 2013 on-sale date. It’s expected to start at around £16,000.
