Kia Carens Cars For Sale

The Kia Carens car is a compact MPV launched by the Korean motor manufacturer in 1999 and manufactured until 2019. Marketed under different names it is also known as the Rondo. With three generations available, the most prominent in the South African market will probably be the second generation (2006 – 2013) that boasted numerous facelifts.

The Second Generation is also much more spacious, it can seat seven adults with ease.

The Interior of the used Kia Carens was also taken up a notch with better quality hard plastics and durable upholstery.
