Kia is going from strength-to-strength. Having ditched the old-day image of low-quality materials and uninspiring styling, the Korean marque is now a key player in the UK family car market.

Used Kia Carens are available from as little as £4,000 on

And it’s cars like the Carens MPV that have cemented this position. Aside from its appealing styling – the work of Audi TT penman Peter Schrayer – the Carens appeals to families with its practicality, spacious cabin and a generous selection of toys, guaranteed to take the sting out of even the longest schlep to visit the grandparents.

It’s even backed up by Kia’s industry leading seven-year warranty, which could see you enjoying the Carens long after your little ones have flown the nest.
