So I just kind of noticed this the other day. In both front wheel wells, there's this small cover that can be detached separately from the rest of the wheel well. There doesn't seem to be a thing behind it other than the front bumper fog lights.

However, I also noticed that (for the GT-Line) the space below the fog lights can be taken out separately as well. It could be a way to route airflow to the wheels that way.

Do you think there was a duct to the wheels for the 2021+ (DL3) Kia K5 before? I ask this because while I was at the dealer earlier today getting my oil changed, I noticed the 2021 Sorento, 2021 K7 (Cadenza), and the 2021 Forte GT-Line all had a duct there from the front leading to the wheels. Here's a pic of the Forte GT-Line wheel well to see what I mean.

So I had a loaner 21 k5 lxs while my 22 k5 gt line was being worked on. I also noticed on mine that little cover was still in tact like yours while on the loaner it was gone and open. 🤷🏻‍♂️
