Summary

After 4 years of ownerships, still worth every cents,served me well without giving headache,spacious trunk for family travel, 3 years free service with parts and labour, Isnt a fast car within the time given 0-100kmh 10.50s but it cruise upto 220kmh and handling are below expected. A full tank of RON97 50L will take you average 630km.If you are speeding madness, this 1.6L NA are not for you, get higher 2.0 variant instead. Overall still statisfy my white ride, Kia K3 1.6 SX.


When looking for a used Kia K3, ensure the vehicle is well-presented and has a comprehensive service history, alternatively check out these immaculate examples of the Kia K3 on Carsome, which are offered with lucrative cash discounts and free tinting packages for a limited time.
