Review Summary
The Kia Carens is emblematic of the great leap forward Kia has made recently: it’s well built, well equipped, cheap to run and better-looking than many other MPVs.

Kia’s seven-seat Carens MPV is a low-key but capable option in the large MPV class.

Review Summary
A Ford Grand C-Max is more enjoyable to drive and a Citroen Grand C4 Picasso more stylish inside. However, the Kia Carens is cheaper than both these rivals and similarly practical. It makes a fine family car.

It’s definitely one of the best looking MPVs as well, and so if practicality’s your thing but you don’t want to compromise on style or desirability then the Carens is more than worth your attention.
