Kia Carens vs Hyundai Alcazar: Distinctive Characteristics

The Korean cousins are stuffed to the gills with physical characteristics. Nonetheless, when we compare the Kia Carens with Hyundai Alcazar, it is observed that there are a few characteristics that the Kia Carens does not have. 

 

The Kia Carens come loaded with a sunroof,  roof-mounted air conditioning vents, which limits the size of the sunroof to a single pane unit.

Another omission is the center console, which is reserved for second-row passengers. The Hyundai Alcazar comes equipped with a center armrest with storage, two cup holders, even a wireless charger, but the Kia Carens is simply equipped with a foldable thin armrest. 

 

In addition, the Hyundai Alcazar is equipped with a blind spot warning monitor, which is neatly integrated into the vehicle's digital instrument cluster.

The Kia Carens also have 4 stage speed control for the back air conditioning vents, whereas the Hyundai Alcazar only has three-stage speed control for the third-row passengers.

One advantage Kia Carens has over the competition is the extensive list of safety measures that come standard across all models. 

 

The Kia Carens included six airbags, disc brakes on all four wheels, rear parking sensors, a tyre pressure monitoring system, ABS, VSC, downhill braking control, and ISOFIX child seat mounts, among other safety and convenience features. 

 

Additionally, depending on the variation, there are three distinct interior themes from which to choose. 

 

Is the Kia Carens a better bargain than the Hyundai Alcazar in this comparison? All of this trickles down to the cost of acquiring the Kia Carens.
