    It has only been a few short months since the Kia Carens was launched in India, but the MPV has garnered plenty of demand. So much so, that the waiting periods for the Carens have crossed the five-month mark for select variants.

    Phasing out the introductory pricing, Kia has increased the prices of the MPV’s entire range. Dealer sources also tell us that waiting period for the Carens base variant is as high as ten months at some locations.

    • Kia Carens price hike ranges from Rs 20,000-70,000
    • 1.5P Prestige & 1.5D Luxury+ 7S AT trims see Rs 70,000 increase
    • 1.4P Premium and Prestige+ AT variants have the lowest price hike

    As seen in the table above, Kia hasn’t uniformly hiked the prices of all Carens variants. While costs for some trims have only gone up by Rs 20,000 (1.4P Premium and Prestige+ AT), some others are seeing an increase of around Rs 70,000 (1.5P Prestige and 1.5D Luxury+ 7S AT) over their introductory launch price.

    The rest of the trims slot in somewhere between the above-mentioned prices. It is likely that Kia has also kept various hikes seeing the demand for each variant and the availability for it.
