When you think about buying a new car, you probably think about American made models or models that are coming from countries in Asia. But, these are not the only countries that are known for making cars. Russia is also making its mark in the auto industry. They are doing this with their line of KIA vehicles. New 2017 KIA Carens is one of the first vehicles from this line.
2017 KIA Carens Exterior and Interior
KIA doesn’t make as many new car models as other manufacturers. They are known for making quality and then sticking with it. Once they get their lineup where they want it to be then they stick with it. This means that you don’t see ten new models a year out of them. You usually only see about 2 new models released every year. They have had great success with their SUVs. This year they are moving more into a small family hybrid vehicle. This doesn’t mean that it runs on hybrid fuels. This hybrid is more akin to the outback that we saw in years past. It is a cross between an SUV and an MPV.
This provides many advantages for families. You have more leg room and storage space than a simple small car would offer. 2017 KIA Carens is great for people who have several kids or for those family road trips to Grandma’s.

You also can choose to go with a diesel engine that offers 1.7 GDI of power.
