Kia Motors Corp. on Thursday launched an upgraded K3 subcompact to attract customers with more features and simplified trims.

The 1.6-liter K3 subcompact went on sale in the domestic market earlier in the day, the country's second-biggest carmaker said in a statement.

Kia reduced the number of trims of the diesel-powered K3 to four from six and of the gasoline version to three from six. It added improved features such as 16-inch alloy wheels and an advanced air filter system, to make the sedan more attractive to buyers.

The latest K3 is priced at between 15 and 22 million won ($13,000- $20,000), similar to the previous model. (Yonhap)
