Kia Carens interior

The budget origins of the Carens are more easily spotted in the interior.

Style

Piano black details give the car a more upmarket feel

Piano black plastic and soft-touch materials go a long way into making the atmosphere in the Carens more upmarket. However, areas that let the side down are the build quality that is still slightly behind German rivals and the design that is quite dark and gloomy.

The Carens does pretty much everything you want apart from mirror your phone's screen

Infotainment

Watch our Kia Carens interior and infotainment video review

If you want the full works you have to go high up the model range for the ‘3’ models that get sat-nav. The system is a touchscreen but it’s fairly responsive and a bit quicker to find a route to your destination than the system in a VW Touran so it’s pretty good even if the graphics are a bit dated.
