Kia Motors Corporation’s joint venture in China, Dongfeng Yueda Kia (DYK), today unveiled the KX3 concept in Guangzhou, previewing a C-segment SUV that Kia envisions to offer exclusively for the Chinese market.

Kia_KX3_1Making its global premiere at the 2014 Guangzhou Motor Show, Kia’s latest concept illustrates what a compact SUV from the Korean brand could look like in a rapidly growing segment of the Chinese car market. Kia Motors has yet to confirm whether the KX3 concept will be put into production.

Kia_KX3_2The KX3 concept blends an SUV silhouette with sporty looks, featuring a coupé-inspired glass area, small rear spoiler, gently rising belt-line and muscular wheel arches. At 4,260 mm long, with a wide 1,765 mm body and generous 2,590 mm wheelbase, the KX3 concept ensures that passengers benefit from plenty of cabin space. The raised body, at 1,630 mm in height, offers a commanding view of the drive ahead – on- and off-road – while the concept’s large 400-liter cargo area is completely flat for added practicality.

Kia_KX3_3The concept model is powered by Kia’s high-tech 1.6-liter turbo gasoline direct injection (T-GDI) engine, paired with an advanced seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT). The four-wheel drive powertrain, backed up by the T-GDI engine’s strong performance and high fuel economy, lets drivers enjoy greater stability in all conditions.

Kia_KX3_4The cabin is designed to offer a high level of refinement and comfort, while Kia’s latest in-car connectivity technology – with easy-to-use smartphone functionality – will satisfy the needs of young-at-heart Chinese drivers. It promises a high level of standard equipment, and a wide range of options, to ensure the greatest possible value to buyers.
