Well, I believed that the engine is the heart of the vehicle and no offense meant to toyota innova D4D owners, it may have the other features but from the feedback of others, the defect of the engine, minor or otherwise, would mean troubles in the day to day operations

I still have the 05 Innova G D4D till now, no problems ever since.. Except the time when they had a recall back in 07, something to do with the rear axle..

good choice on picking the innova...though I agree that the carrens would also be a pretty good choice, for me it would boil down to resale calue and spare parts availability, which for me should be big considerations when purchasing any car

The Carens drives like a car but need more room... the Toyota takes the spot...

If this is a battle of the powerplants, the Carens CRDI would win hands down.

same here. toyota wins, no doubt, since they know what the people need. i'm not saying kia doesn't, they just don't do it as well as toyota.

Twas a difficulty for me,a woman, finding a vehicle which can accommodate more than 5 passengers especially when there are visitors from abroad or from the province and at an affordable cost but at the same time I don't look a driver of a car pool or a v-hire.I also don't want to be in a very girly attire and then hopped in or come down in a macho vehicle.More than its physical attributes,my mechanic friends really admired the CRDI,VGT engine of Carens,its interior,aircon and other added features, value for money daw.  after a long analysis...Carens na!

oh no! the base model kia carens now climbs the 1million peso mark,for the similar amount of money you can get a high-end innova g diesel,the kia loses a bit of its value for money so for me it's the innova

 :-\I THINK WE ARE COMPARING AN APPLE TO AN ORANGE... CARENS IS A REAL MODERN WAGON UNI-BODY DESIGN WHILE THE INNOVA IS A CHASSIS TYPE VEHICLE USING PLATFORM OF HILUX. LOOKING TO ENGINE PERFORMANCE, CARENS HAS A LOT OF EDGE IN TERMS OF FUEL EFFICIENCY AND POWER PLUS USING MUCH ADVANCE DIESEL ENGINE TECHNOLOGY "crdi". CARENS CAN BE SEEN IN EUROPE BUT INNOVA I DONT THINK SO... SINCE THE INNOVA MARKET IS FOR SOUTHEAST ASIA ...WHY??? BECAUSE INNOVA IS FOR ASIA ONLY AND WILL NOT PASS IN EUROPEAN STANDARD AS A WAGON....NO OFFENSE TO INNOVA USERS BUT THIS IS A GOOD WAGON WELL SUITED FOR PHILIPPINE MARKET AND ROAD CONDITIONS.

I'd still go for the Kia Carens...More value for money and cheaper...and good-looking.... :)

but is it really worth it?
