New Kia Rio and Picanto Debut In Geneva

Kia Rio live in Geneva

Kia Rio live in GenevaKia released first details about the new Rio and Picanto earlier this year, so there isn’t anything breaking here – just little more details and new photos.

The fourth-generation Rio features a bolder design and is now in line with the rest of Kia’s product range. The new model is longer by 20 mm, wider by 25 mm, and lower by -15 mm compared to the previous model, and features a wheelbase extended by 70 mm to 2,570 mm.

Under the bonnet four different engines will be available – two petrol units and two diesels. The 5-door version will go on sale in the UK from September with the 3-door model following in early 2012.

The new Picanto features a similar design as the Rio, and will be available with three engines and two different transmissions(automatic is optional only with the four-cylinder engine).

For the first time the Picanto will be offered for with a choice of 5-door and 3-door body styles. Sales of the new Picanto will start later this year.

For more details about both models take a look at the press releases below.
