    Replacing the HTK+ automatic variants available earlier, Kia has now introduced automatic transmission options on the HTX variant with both petrol (120PS 1.0-litre turbo) and diesel engines (115PS 1.5-litre diesel). Additional features introduced on the HTX variant include electronic stability control, hill launch assist, vehicle stability management, brake assist, 16-inch alloy wheels, rear door sunshade curtain, traction modes (automatic variants only), drive Modes (automatic variants only), and paddle Shifters (automatic variants only).

The HTX+ variant is available only with a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine paired with 6-speed iMT and a 1.5-litre diesel engine mated to a 6-speed MT.
