Text: Understand the original Zhang Kai of Che Di
A few days ago, overseas media exposed a set of brand-new KIA K3 spy photos, which can be regarded as a brand-new model. Although the new K3 in spy photos covers a large area of camouflage clothing, from the details, the front face still retains the air intake grille structure, and the headlight style is flatter than the current model. It is reported that the new K3 will be unveiled in overseas markets in 2025. In China, the 2023 K3 has just been listed, and the guide price range is 112,900-143,900 yuan.

Compared with the 2023 KIA K3 sold in China, the new K3 in spy photos adopts a flatter headlight group, and the upper part of the headlight group is a daytime running light area. In addition, there is an air inlet in the center of the bottom of the front bumper, and we guess that the grille shape on the front face may be adjusted. For reference, the 2023 K3 sold in China also offers seven appearance colors.

On the side and tail of the car body, the brand-new K3 in spy photos has a slip-back design style, and the roof gradually declines from the B-pillar, which, together with the waistline of the car body gradually rising, creates a relatively sporty car body posture. In terms of dimensions, refer to the 2023 K3, with the length, width and height of 4666/1780/1450 mm and the wheelbase of 2700 mm respectively. Compared with FAW-Volkswagen Bora at the same level, the 2023 K3 has an advantage in wheelbase, and we guess that the body dimensions of the new K3 will be fine-tuned on this basis.
At present, Kia has not disclosed the power information of the new K3. Referring to the 2023 models sold in China, the whole system provides a 1.5-liter naturally aspirated engine or a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine. Among them, the maximum power of the 1.4-liter turbocharged engine is 140 horsepower, which is 10 horsepower higher than that of the old model. It matches the seven-speed dry dual-clutch gearbox, and the fuel consumption of WLTC under comprehensive working conditions is 5.8 liters /100 kilometers; The 1.5-liter naturally aspirated engine has a maximum power of 85 kW and a maximum torque of 144 Nm, matching the continuous variable transmission gearbox, and the fuel consumption of WLTC under comprehensive working conditions is 5.55 liters /100 km.
