Facelifted Kia KX3 celebrates Chengdu premiere
The restyled Kia KX3 crossover series is currently exhibited at the Chengdu International Motor Show which opened earlier today, August 31, in the city of Chengdu, China.
In its next iteration, the China-only KX3 sports a new radiator grille (like those of the Kia Cadenza and Kia Optima), two tailpipes instead of one, and chromed stripes under the windows.
Neither the dimensions nor the interior received any modifications.
The CUV now ships with a 1.6-liter naturally-aspirated gasoline engine with 125 hp (93 kW) under its command. It can work with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Whether a turbocharged engine will also be available is unknown right now.
Two trim versions of the car will be released, but the manufacturer doesn’t provide any further details at the moment. The base trim will cost U.S. $16,000, while the top trim will list for U.S. $19,500.
