EU spec. It does not appear to have the Russian front. I do not know EU trim levels to accurately access chassis codes. Way above my pay grade.

2012-2015 US codes are as follows:

LX: [DM]
EX/SE: [DN]

Russian built 2011 (2012 MY) utilize [CB].

I believe your Spirit uses the latter. When in doubt use the generic platform code [UB].

I don't know well these, but for example in Italy we didn't have any Spirit trim, but trims were EX, EX Plus and LX for 2011-13 (introduced here September 2011) and City, Active and Cool for 2013-17.

What's the point of using different chassis codes for each trim level?

[UB] isn’t used for American models.

Feel free to check VINs. Seems someone ran with misinformation and it was posted all over. VINs clearly do not show [UB] anywhere. Some platform codes are accurate on wiki and some aren’t.

Kia uses the 4th/5th digit for the chassis code.

E46 can't be found on any 3-Series VIN either, yet everyone uses it to identify this generation of the car. We use the more commonly known codes on a lot of cars, instead of the very specific ones you get only from the VIN. On most cars listed here it's not possible to tell apart the trims or engines and not just for the Kia Rio.

It's of course more accurate to list it that way but it would be impossible to figure out every engine/trim of each background car listed here. I also don't see the point of having lots of chassis code listings for cars that are essentially identical.

I see your point. I understand what you mean. I disagree completely as platform codes are not chassis codes. I guess then we need to ask antp to wave his wand if it is an issue.

I always strive for accuracy and perfection and if my efforts were in vain so be it. My efforts weren’t to cause issues but to accurately depict factual information.

The term "chassis code" was just intended to design some internal reference from the manufacturer that can be useful for referencing cars when the model name is not very precise or unknown in most of the cases (BMW, Mercedes, etc.), similar across generations (VW, Audi, Toyota, Australian Ford/Holden models, ...) or unify different names that differ from one market to another (old models of VW & Audi, again).
If it is just some obscure codes that depend on the trim/country, that has absolutely no use for us, and just gives more work to be filled in.
This field is not mandatory to be completed for all models/makes, it supposed just to be a complement to the model name if needed.
