Kia couldn’t wait until the 2016 Paris Auto Show to introduce the world to its all-new, fourth-generation Rio. The company released the first official pictures today.
Design of the new Rio was led by Kia’s design centres in Germany and California, in close collaboration with its global design headquarters in Namyang, Korea.
The signature Tiger Nose grille is now thinner in height and wider across the front of the car, flanked by U-shaped, LED-accented headlights. In terms of size, the new Kia Rio is 15mm longer than its predecessor and 5mm shorter in height.
Inside, the redesigned dashboard is now angled towards the driver, and at its centre is a “floating” human-machine interface with a new infotainment system and a high-resolution touchscreen to power the Rio’s audio, navigation, and new connectivity features.
Look for more details and pictures to follow the Kia Rio’s world premiere on September 29th.
