As revealed above, the Kia Carens’ naturally aspirated 1.5-liter petrol engine, which is only available with 6-speed manual transmission, is the least efficient powertrain among all, while the diesel engine with manual transmission is the most efficient, followed by the diesel-AT and turbo-petrol-DCT combination. Interestingly, the turbo-gasoline and the oil burner offer better mileage than the Kia Seltos, which also get the same engine options.

Talking about the acceleration, the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol unit with manual transmission is the fastest here that can complete the 0-100kmph sprint in 10 seconds.
