Kia has just added a touch of exclusivity to its Carens lineup with the introduction of the new X-Line trim. The Carens X-Line is set to cater to the needs of discerning Indian families who seek a combination of practicality, premium features, and an exclusive driving experience. This exciting addition starts at an enticing price of 18.94 Lakhs and is available in two variants, the Petrol 7DCT and Diesel 6AT, both configured as 6-seaters and priced at 18,94,900 and 19,44,900, respectively (ex-sh).
One of the standout features of the Carens X-Line is its distinctive exterior and interior design enhancements, specifically tailored to the X-Line styling. The exterior boasts a captivating Xclusive Matte Graphite exterior color, setting it apart from the crowd. The Carens X-Line’s interior is equally impressive, featuring an Xclusive Two Tone Black and Splendid Sage Green theme. These design choices aim to provide an elevated driving experience.
For the passengers in the rear, Kia has included an exclusive Rear Seat Entertainment (RSE) Unit for LH (left-hand) rear passengers. This entertainment system offers a wide range of features, including access to podcasts, screen mirroring, Pinkfong, and various other entertainment and news apps. What’s more, the RSE unit can be effortlessly controlled via a remote-control app installed on the user’s smartphone, ensuring convenience and entertainment for passengers on the go.
Mr. Myung-sik Sohn, Chief Sales and Business Officer of Kia India, commented on the introduction of the X-Line trim: “The distinctive identity of our products has helped us become an aspirational brand, and X-Line’s popularity among new-age consumers has elevated it to the next level. We are seeing a lot of new-age buyers considering distinctive and exclusive products while making purchasing decisions, so we decided to extend this trim to our India Car of The Year – Kia Carens. We already have a growing Carens family of 100,000 customers, and the X-Line will significantly expand it.”
