Kia India to launch Ertiga Rival 7 Seater MPV In 2022
Kia India to launch Maruti Suzuki Ertiga / XL6 Rival 7 Seater MPV In Early 2022. Will it be Called Carens?
Yesterday Kia confirmed that is launching an all new product by early next year. That all new product is the all new Kia MPV that the car-maker is currently said to be working on. It might be a mix between an MPV and a crossover like the Maruti XL6 also. 7-seater cars are currently in demand and since Kia has said it is not getting into the hatchback space or the sedan space, the MPV/crossover segment is the place where they will head onto next. The new MPV would be a proper 3-row model with ample space for all three rows including even the third row. It will have the traditional Kia styling details like the Tiger nose grille plus would have an interior shared with the Seltos including a high features list. However we expect the top-end versions to have a 6-seater lay-out including a captain seat set-up. Unlike the Carnival, it will not have sliding doors though as it will have standard rear doors. Being based on the same platform as the Seltos, the new MPV would also share the 1.5l petrol and 1.5l diesel with CVT and torque converter automatics to be offered. There would be no turbo petrol on offer though. This new MPV would rival the Ertiga, XL6 and Marazzo in India with prices to start at around 10 lakhs. This would be the fourth new launch from Kia and the second new MPV after the Carnival and may be called Kia Carens
