Kia's new Carens in the flesh
12 April 2006

Kia has released the first official images of its new seven-seat Carens, due to be launched at the Madrid motor show next month.

The final product doesn't quite match the dramatic, chunky mini-MPV outlined in Kia's pre-release drawings recently. But the Korean firm has come up with a neat, inoffensive design that will probably appeal to the Carens' core market.

Details are still relatively scarce on specification and equipment, although Kia is promising both petrol and diesel engines.

Our Verdict

Ford S-Max 2006-2014

The Ford S-Max a highly accomplished car, but it needs to be cheaper when demand for MPVs is being eradicated by the high-riding SUV competition
