After strong starts in India and South Korea, the Kia Seltos has been introduced in China at the 2019 Chengdu Motor Show.

However, for the Chinese market it will be sold under a different name, the KX3, and will be taller and longer than the Indian-spec Seltos.

The Indian-spec Seltos is 4,345 mm long (171 inches), 1,800 mm wide (70.8 inches), and 1,645 mm tall (64.7 inches) with 2,630 mm wheelbase (103.5 inches). The KX3 is 30 mm longer (1.2 inches), 25 mm taller (1 inch), and has a 20 mm longer wheelbase (0.8 inches).

The Kia KX3 comprises of additional features like adaptive cruise control and larger panoramic sunroof compared to the Seltos retailed in India. The top-spec trims are equipped with 17-inch double five-spoke alloy wheels and the interior gets a horizontally-positioned 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and other connectivity features such as navigation.

The new generation Kia KX3 derives power a G4FL 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, which is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 115 horsepower. It is paired with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed CVT automatic transmission driving the front wheels.

In global markets, the Seltos is also offered with 177 PS 1.6-litre turbo motor, 149 PS 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated unit and a 136 PS 1.6-litre diesel engine.

I wonder if this means we're going to see a bigger version of the Seltos in other markets. Hopefully this isn't a Chinese exclusive.
