Kia India Riding On Caren’s Success

The recently launched Carens is turning out to be a top choice amongst the customers. Kia has hit it out of the park with cars, both in terms of pricing and offering an overall package. Kia positions the Carens as neither an SUV nor an MPV, but a Recreational Vehicle, as Kia likes to call it. In terms of features, the car is loaded as per the 2022 standard. The demand for three-row vehicles SUVs is on the rise in India. And Caren’s competitive pricing is definitely helping Kia in a price-sensitive market like India.

Moreover, Carens also gets multiple powertrains and trims options. This aids in expanding its target audience, thus amplifying the sales. With Carens in its portfolio, Kia will expect the sales trajectory to reach new highs in the coming months.
