Kia Carens History
The Kia Carens has been produced over three different generations to date. The first generation (1999-2002) had the more traditional MPV look. The second generation (2002-06) has the more ‘car-like’ look and the third generation (2006-present) looks much like the previous version. This is the current version on the market.
The American and Australian version of this vehicle is called the Kia Rondo which was not introduced until 2007. It was quite popular to begin with but sales soon declined in the US, and it was discontinued in 2009. It is still being sold in Canada though.
The Kia Carens is available in 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0L petrol and 1.6 and 2.0L engines in diesel. The most economical of the available engines is the 1.6L diesel which offers up to 49mpg.
