Carens prices were expected to be close to those of the Hyundai Alcazar before of the price announcement. Kia India, on the other hand, pulled a rabbit out of their hat and astonished everyone with low costs. The pricing of an Alcazar ranges from Rs 16.34 lakh to Rs 20.15 lakh. All prices are in U.S. dollars and include sales tax. Demand for the Carens MPV has increased even more as a result of the aggressive pricing. According to the most recent information, Carens’ waiting period has reached 49 weeks, which is slightly over a year. The Prestige 6MT petrol 1.5 model, which starts at Rs 9.99 lakh, has the longest waiting period. The waiting times for all Kia Carens versions are listed below.

Carens, like Seltos, will be a front-wheel-drive vehicle.
