New crossover Kia KX7 2018-2019 years – photos and videos, the price and bundled. Technical characteristics and feedback of the owners of the sibling brother Kia Sorento Prime , novelties Kia 2018-2019 for China.

Just want to note that, perhaps, the new Kia KX7 will get to Russia, but in the face of the updated Kia Sorento Prime. It is interesting that representatives of the Korean manufacturer persistently keep silent about the prospects of the novelty’s release to other markets, evasively explaining that Kia KH7 is intended exclusively for China. Production of the machine has already started at the Dongfeng Yueda Kia Automobile plant (Dongfeng Motor, Yueda) in Jiangsu, China.

The new Kia KX7, with all the external similarity to the sibling brother Kia Sorento Prime, differs from the fellow with a more expressive and original front part of the body and solid stern. At the same time, the body of the KX7 crossover is 50 mm smaller in length and the wheelbase is 80 mm smaller than the Sorento Prime model offered in the Celestial under the name Kia Sorento L. It is an elongated Sorento (the model is not manufactured in China but imported from South Korea) is designed to replace the new crossover Kia KX7.

That’s how the full picture with the novelty was drawn, and it became clear why the representatives of Kia motors are not in a hurry to talk about the prospects for the new crossover model to enter other markets. Just Kia KX7 is a simpler version of the Kia Sorento Prime (Kia Sorento L), offered in China for a price of 237,800 yuan.

When reviewing the Kia KX7 body on the side, we reveal the smaller second-row doors and the more compact rear part of the body with a different roof rack than the version of Kia Sorento Prime (Kia Sorento L).

The feed of the novelty flaunts the original plafond lights and a massive bumper, supplemented by trapezoids exhaust nozzles.
