Kia Motors Corp.'s K3 GT sedan showed off its impressive characteristics at a media test-drive event held on Nov. 22, 2018 near Seoul.
During a 160 kilometer drive that took two hours from Paju to Namyangju, north of Seoul, the K3 GT with a peppy 1.6-liter turbocharged engine proved that acceleration is one of its main virtues, along with quick and precise steering response, solid braking and generally good handling that made driving a pleasure.
Its long hood, steeply raked windshield and fastback roofline, together with muscular wheel arches mated with 18-inch alloy wheels and tires, gave the vehicle an athletic look.
When the K3 GT's throttle was pushed down hard, there was almost instantaneous response and acceleration.
The braking generated confidence, cornering was predictable and the steering was nicely weighted even at high speeds of over 180 kilometers per hour. (Yonhap)
