Kia Motors is gearing up to launch the facelifted version of the Carens MPV in India next year. Recent images of the test mules provide a clear view of the refreshed design, which seems to draw inspiration from Kia’s new all-electric EV series of cars and SUVs.

Sleek New Design Elements 🔥

Front Facelift:

  • The headlamps have been redesigned to feature more angular units.
  • An upper LED eyebrow and a main unit positioned below, similar to the globally sold Kia EV5.
  • The two elements form a single assembly, replacing the split headlamp design of the current model.


Side Profile:

  • Minimal changes with new alloy wheels being the most noticeable update.

Rear Enhancements:

  • New light clusters and a redesigned bumper.
  • Squared-off light units suggesting a design akin to the Seltos and Sonet.
  • New rectangular tail lamps connected by a full-width light bar.


Upgraded Interior Features 🛋️📱

Inside the cabin, Kia is likely to update trims, upholstery, and the feature list of the MPV. Expect all existing features to remain, including:

  • 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system
  • Bose audio system
  • Sunroof
  • Ventilated front seats
  • Connected car technology


Additionally, the Carens might receive updates like a new digital instrument cluster similar to the one found in the Seltos and Sonet. The test mule also had camera modules on the wing mirror, indicating that top models may come equipped with a 360-degree camera for enhanced safety and convenience.

Powertrain and Performance 💪⚡

The facelifted Carens is expected to continue with the current lineup of petrol and diesel engines:

  • 1.5L petrol engine
  • 1.5L diesel engine
  • 1.5L turbo-petrol engine


All three engines are likely to be available with both manual and automatic gearbox options, providing flexibility for various driving preferences.

Competitors in the Market 🏁

The updated Kia Carens will continue to compete against rivals such as the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and XL6, aiming to offer a more premium and feature-rich option in the MPV segment.
