Kia Carens Now Gets Digital Instrument Cluster As Standard

Earlier, the Kia Carens Premium base variant was only available with a twin-dial analogue instrument cluster with a digital multi-information display (MID). Now though, Kia offer an all-digital instrument cluster right from the base Premium variant all the way up to the top-spec Luxury Plus variant of the Carens MUV.

However, it is worth mentioning that the digital instrument cluster of the Kia Carens isn’t a full-colour LCD display. It uses a 4.2-inch multi-colour display along with digital readouts for engine RPM and vehicle speed.
