The all-new, fourth-generation Kia Rio will make its world premiere on September 29 at the Paris Motor Show.
The Rio’s new exterior and interior design was led by Kia’s design centres in Germany and California, in collaboration with the company’s main design centre in Namyang, Korea.
“Straight lines and smooth surfacing give the car a distinctive new character, while a longer front overhang and bonnet, longer wheelbase, and upright C-pillar give the car an even more confident and balanced appearance than its predecessor,” said Kia.
The Kia Rio is the Korean manufacturer’s best-selling model, with more than 473,000 sold around the world in 2015.
The next generation will enter production towards the end of 2016 for Europe, with production timings for the UK to be announced closer to launch.
