The Kia Joice, or Kia Carstar, is a 7-seat compact MPV produced between 1999 and 2002 by the Korean manufacturer Kia Motors.


Kia co-developed the vehicle with the Hyundai Motor Company. The Joice shared the same platform as the Hyundai Santamo. The vehicle had a 2.0-liter gasoline engine that produced between 120 and 139 horse power.[1] In 2001, a facelift was introduced for the European market.
