Kia readies Rio ahead of 2016 Mondial de l’Automobile
The all-new, fourth-generation Kia Rio will make its world premiere on 29 September in Paris, at the 2016 Mondial de l’Automobile.
Kia said the Rio’s progressive new exterior and interior design was led by its design centres in Germany and California, in close collaboration with the company’s main design centre in Namyang, Korea.
The organization stated on Wednesday that the car’s straight lines and smooth surfacing give the it 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.
It is expected that the new Rio would offer buyers class-leading practicality and safety technology, the latest connectivity features, and more assured and engaging ride and handling characteristics, Kia said.
Kia Rio, Korean manufacturer’s global best-selling model, with more than 473,000 sold around the world in 2015, is expected to enter production towards the end of 2016 for Europe, with production timings for other regions to be announced closer to launch.
