PT KIA has introduced its latest addition to the range, namely the 6-seater Kia Carens 1.5L IVT with captain’s seats and sunroof for a more luxurious look.
PT Kreta Indo Artha (KIA) completes its line of passenger cars with the presence of the latest type of Kia Carens. This medium MPV gets a new variant with more comfortable captain’s seats through the 6-seat Kia Carens 1.5L IVT type which provides another alternative for Indonesian family cars.
6 seater edition
After introducing the 7-seater 1.5L Carens and 6-seater 1.4T, Kia fans in Indonesia have a new choice. The 6-seat Carens 1.5L IVT offers a premium drive with all the signature Kia features.
While the 1.5L type was previously available with 7 seats, this time the type offers a captain’s seat on the second row bench seat. It features a luxurious and premium look, especially since all types of Carens have received sunroof and wireless charger or wireless charging capabilities.

It’s even more sophisticated because the second row of seats features one-touch fumble, where the seats will fold instantly when the consumer presses the top button. Offers a more practical arrangement for third row seats.
“We always try to meet the needs of consumers in Indonesia by presenting suitable and high-value products,” explained Ario Soerjo, head of marketing and development division of PT Kreta Indo Artha, in his official statement.
The features are still fascinating
The Kia Carens itself is a sporty style MPV that offers unique Kia style on the outside. Including the front with a touch of Kia Signature Tiger and Digital Radiator Grille and 16-inch diameter wheels.
Inside, other features include an 8.0-inch infotainment screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, three driving modes (Normal, Eco and Sport) and the Idle Stop & Go function that works to improve fuel efficiency during the driving. Type-C charging is also present in all seat rows to increase driving convenience.
Apart from the seats, there is no significant difference with the 7-seater type
There is no significant difference between the 6-seater 1.5L IVT and the 6-seater 1.4T. However, this new model features a 1.5-litre Smartstream Gamma II engine with an output of 115PS at 6,300rpm and maximum torque of 144Nm at 4,500rpm, mated to an IVT (Intelligent Variable Transmission) with 8 speeds.
The price for the 6-seat Kia Carens 1.5L IVT starts at IDR 414,600,000, or IDR 7 million more than the 7-seat type. Thereafter, the Kia Carens 1.4T 6-seater priced at IDR 467,000,000 will still be marketed, but through spot orders for consumers who want this turbocharged model.
