The new 2015 Kia KX3 is apparently production ready. Images leaked online last week and it is one sharp looking ride. The KX3 is joining the smaller SUV market, measuring 168.1 x 70 x 64 inches, the KX3 will be segmented right below the Kia Sportage SUV.
The KX3 in its full production form is remarkably close to the schematics it originally leaked with at the Guangzhou Auto Show earlier this year.
Quirk Kia is hoping we will be able to spot the new 2015 Kia KX3 near Boston sometime soon. Information online suggests that China will see this new model in March 2015. When the release time comes, the new 2015 KX3 will be competing with small SUV’s and crossovers such as the Nissan Juke, Chevrolet Trax and Volkswagen Tiguan. So check back here, or on our website, for the latest information.
Performance Sneak Peek:
The 2015 Kia KX3 is said to offer two peppy and fuel-efficient 1.6L gasoline four-cylinder engines. The naturally aspirated engine generates 123 horsepower, while the turbocharged 1.6L T-GDI delivers around 200 horsepower. The turbo engine will be coupled with Kia’s new 7-speed DCT, while the naturally aspirated engine will be available with either a 6 speed manual or automatic transmission.
The 2015 Kia KX3 looks and sounds like a promising contender for the smaller SUV market. But what do you think? Pricing will likely start at $17,500 and range up towards $27,295. What else would you like to see in this model? Optional all-wheel-drive? Large displays? Panoramic sunroof? Or something else altogether? We’re curious what you think, so let us know!

The new 2016 Kia Sorento is about to get a facelift and body drop. And over at Quirk Kia in Braintree, we’re ready to see it in person. Are you?
The next generation Kia Sorento crossover body will be longer, lower and have more interior space. A larger and more defined grill, joined with advanced headlights sharpen the already distinguished face of the large SUV. This popular Kia has seen two big updates over the years since 2002, and after the 2014 L.A. Auto Show in November, it’s become clear that this generation has the potential to be the greatest Sorento yet.
The large crossover market is competitive, with a lot of players, everyone can see that. But Kia brings a lot to the lot with this one. The new 2016 Sorento has a wider stance and expanded wheelbase for more cabin space that seats up to seven. The seven seater is a clincher option for some buyers, and an added convenience for others. Stylistic updates include but are far from limited to, sculpted surfaces complemented by a luxurious wraparound dashboard, fine leather seating, soft and plush surfaces, and a crystal clear infotainment system. It’s obvious that Kia is going for a sophisticated yet edgy look on this new cost effective large SUV.
Kia has stated that the new 2016 Sorento will be available in five different trim levels, giving consumers plenty of options when choosing their next Sorento. Bluetooth, all-wheel-drive, a Smart Power Liftgate for hands-free opening and a height adjustable hatch, 14-way power seating, and different engines round out some of the technology going into this new Kia model. A GDI 2-liter gasoline fueled four-cylinder turbo, as well as a strong V6 are two of the potential engines.
For safety features, this new 2016 Kia Sorento receives wider D-pillars, Surround View Monitor, adaptive cruise control, and lane assist as well as optional blind-spot detection.
The new 2016 Kia Sorento will go on sale in the United States in the first half of 2015. If you’re near Boston, come visit us at Quirk Kia in Braintree MA. We’re excited to get this new model in, and are more than happy to help you find your next Kia. But what’s your opinion on this all new Sorento? Which features stand out to you? We always enjoy connecting with customers, so feel free to get in touch via our Facebook, or stay up to date on inventory and our awesome monthly promotions.
