The new Kia K3 is presented as a four-door sedan, which is expected to be followed by a five-door hatchback. Compared to the previous Rio sedan, the new K3 is larger in size. It is 4545mm long, 1765mm wide and 1475mm high. The wheelbase has been increased to 2670 mm. This increase leads to an increase in the luggage compartment to 544 liters (Rio’s volume is 480 liters).
