The Kia Carens is a premium seven-seater MPV from the South Korean carmaker Kia, which competes directly with other popular MPVs in the country, such as the Hyundai Alcazar, Maruti Suzuki XL6, and Toyota Innova Crysta. While it is a great car in itself, the lower variants of the Carens come with fewer features and a less premium interior. To remedy this issue, the owner of a particular Kia Carens got it completely transformed with premium leather upholstery, an upgraded audio system, and other vital features.
The video of this modified Kia Carens has been shared on YouTube by Vig Auto Accessories on their channel. The video starts with beautiful shots of the vehicle from all angles on the outside and inside. Following this, the owner of the shop and the presenter of the video introduces the vehicle as the Kia Carens GT-Line variant.

He states that the car is named the GT-Line variant because, instead of standard Kia Carens alloy wheels, the MPV gets the Kia Seltos GT-Line variant’s diamond-cut 17-inch alloy wheels. He further adds that on the exterior, the car gets genuine window visors from Kia, and they have also applied five layers of Meguiar’s Deep Crystal Ceramic Paint Coating. He stated that the owner did not want to spend extra for PPF, and the car had plenty of scratches, so they went ahead with this ceramic coating.
Following this, he shows the main attraction of the car, which is the high-quality premium customized interior. The presenter states that they have completely transformed the interior of the car with this three-tone interior. He mentions that the car gets rustico tan leather color seat covers with black elements. The entire car is finished in the combination of rustico tan, black, and factory beige color. The lower parts of the door are beige, and the upper portion is wrapped in the same tan color. He then shows the pillars of the car, which are also finished in black.
The presenter then adds that the roof of the car has been finished in black suede as well to give it a more premium look. He then takes a seat in the front of the car and states that they have also painted the main dashboard of the car in high gloss black to tie it with the gloss black door inserts. Following this, he changes the location and mentions that the car has also received a full audio upgrade with a high-quality premium system from Sony. He states that the car gets Sony’s ES Series speakers and components along with the XM-4ES amplifier. He also shows a Maruti Suzuki Ertiga in his workshop where they have installed the same audio setup.
Towards the end of the video, the presenter shows the car in the dark where he states that the car also gets OSRAM Automotive high-end projector headlamps. He states that the owner had tried different variants of the Chinese knock-off LED lights, but none gave the car the quality that he wanted.
