Kia Motors has announced its all-new Carens compact MPV will make its world premiere at the forthcoming Salon International del Automovil de Madrid. The Carens will be revealed to the world for the first time at the bi-annual Spanish motor show, held in the capital’s Parque Ferial Juan Carlos 1 exhibition complex from 25 May.
Releasing a design sketch of the new vehicle, Kia confirmed that the all-new Carens, larger in all its main dimensions than the existing vehicle, will be available with seven seats for the first time in Europe. The rear seats fold down flat into the boot floor when not required.
Underlining the importance of the European marketplace to Kia, the Carens launch will be the sixth new model - following the Picanto , Rio, Sportage , Sedona and Magentis - to make its debut at a European motor show.Published 2 April 2006
