South Korean car brand KIA presented its KX3 Crossover at the Auto Show in Chengdu. Chinese modification of the new Kia Sportage, which is now called KX5, is positioned as a compact crossover and should impress car enthusiasts with quite nice appearance. Production model differs from the concept car in the fog lamps, bumpers, and radiator grille.

We can note among the updates two-tone body color with significantly enhanced rear lights, front fog lamps, an updated grille and bumper with completely new form. The most significant change includes improved air filtration system that enters the cabin. In the Chinese auto market the model will be sold with three turbo engines. It is 1.6-2.0 liter petrol atmospheric power plants, generating 125-160 horsepower. Also relatively new 1.6-liter turbocharged engine developing 160 horsepower is available. We can note that not too many SUVs can offer the same performance. For example, Renault Duster capacity reaches 140 hp.
