Today we have the first official pictures from Kia of its KX3 production version available for the China car maket. The China-only small turbochargered SUV was revealed a month ago in a concept form at the 2014 Guangzhou AutoShow.
This Kia mini SUV use the same engines than his brother, with the only difference that is abailable with a 1.6 Turbo GDi engine delivering 200 hp. Optionally, this engine could be fitted with the latest 7-speed Dual Clutch automatic transmission (DCT).
Probably also include in near future a family of diesel CRDi engines, from the U2 engine family, the 1.4 & 1.6 with 90 and 110 hp.
Looking at the pictures, the car looks like a small Sportage, using same style-designed taillights, fenders, but also has similarities between the lastest models from Citroen (front end).
