Not only does the just-launched Prestige Plus (O) variant make a sunroof more accessible to potential buyers of the Kia Carens, it also brings along an array of higher-end features

Kia Carens

Kia has launched the Prestige Plus (O) variant for the Carens, which is based on the Prestige + variant of the MPV. The new variant has made a couple of higher-end features more accessible than before. Let's take a look at the new variant and what it packs.

Coming to the front, the Prestige plus (O) variant gets LED DRLs, body coloured front bumper and chrome finishes on the front grille giving it a touch of premiumness. That said, it still continues to get halogen headlights.

In profile, you get to see the 16-inch dual-tone alloys, wheel arch and side moldings, body coloured door handles and a chrome finish below the windows running across the length. However, it misses out on chrome finish for the door handles and chrome accents on the door.
