Kia India has hiked the prices of select models in its range by up to Rs 1 lakh. This is the first price increase levied by the automaker in 2023, and here we tell you how much the increase will be at the model level and new showroom prices.
Starting with the Carens MPV, all variants powered by the 1.5-litre petrol engine have become expensive by Rs 20,000, while the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol versions get a uniform price increase of Rs 25,000. As for the diesel variants, the ex-showroom prices have gone up by Rs 45,000. Thus, the new Kia Carens prices start at Rs 10.20 lakh and go up to Rs 18.45 lakh, both prices ex-showroom.

Regardless of the variants, all diesel versions now require an additional Rs 50,000. Meanwhile, the petrol and turbocharged petrol variants are more expensive by Rs 20,000 and Rs 40,000 respectively.
