Kia Carens gets 5-star safety rating from Euro NCAP

Article by Anita Panait, on September 26, 2013

Euro NCAP has awarded the all-new Kia Carens compact MPV with a five-star safety rating. The rating came after the Carens gained high scores for Adult Occupant Protection (94 percent), Child Occupant Protection (76 percent), Safety Assist equipment (81 percent) and Pedestrian protection (64 percent). The Carens is one of only two compact MPVs that were awarded five-star ratings in the 2013 Euro NCAP tests.

Benny Oeyen, Vice President Marketing and Product Planning at Kia Motors Europe remarked that since the beginning of the new Carens’ development program, their engineers were dedicated to creating a compact MPV with the “very best structure and safety technology” to protect drivers and pedestrians. He remarked that the Carens being able to get the highest rating in Euro NCAP that has become tougher in the last five years is a testament to Kia’s ongoing commitment to improving vehicle safety.

Euro NCAP has awarded the Carens maximum point scores for side impact protection against a barrier, child protection for 18-month old infants, front seat whiplash protection and protection for pedestrians’ legs.  Euro NCAP noted that the Carens comes with a ‘belt-up’ reminder for all seats and a driver-set adjustable speed limiter.

It also noted that all of the child restraint types could be properly installed and accommodated in the Carens. The Carens boasts of standard safety equipment like six airbags (front, front side and curtain), seatbelt reminders for all occupants, ESC (Electronic Stability Control), HAC (Hill-start Assist Control) and ESS (Emergency Stop Signalling).
