It looks pretty interesting. Btw, here a more direct link to a pic of the Kia Carens for those that want to take a quick look. Talk later.

#3 of 11 It looks like a minivan

#4 of 11 It reminds me (like the Hyundai Lavita)

of my 1986 Colt Vista. I think there needs to be more of this kind of vehicle and fewer full size minivans and suvs.

I was surfing the web and ran across a pic of the Hyundai Matrix (not to be confused with Toyota's Matrix)- it looks much better than the Lavita.

Lavita is much more modern. The interior looks sweet.
I've seen a Carens CF in Korea, and they used this really famous actor.. but why the heck am I saying this? Hmmm.
Bring over the Lativa, I say..

but I think the Sedona van is a great start for Kia in that market. If Kia wants to have a cheap car for sale in the US why not start reimporting the Pride, it's the old Ford Festiva, they still make it in 3-door and 5-door versions, the Mazda 1.3L engines are still being made, they could make a nice hot hatch with the 2.0L engine from the Protege...hmm...maybe add 4WD, make it like a miniature 323 GTX...hmm...well, I can dream, can't I?
#8 of 11 I think the LaVita is the Matrix

Toyota copped the Matrix name in the U.S.
#9 of 11 Matrix

I don't know.. wasn't the Lavita released later than the Matrix?
#10 of 11 I'm pretty sure the Matrix

is the newer of the two. Regardless, Hyundai still beat Toyota to the name game.
#11 of 11 Lavita, Matrix, FC

The Lavita name is used in Korea.
The FC name is used in Europe.
Where is the FC for Lavita used?
