New Kia Rio Teased Ahead of Geneva Debut

Kia has released the first official sketches of the next generation Rio, that according to the automaker marks “the next big step” in the company’s ongoing design revolution.

New Rio is longer, lower and wider than the existing Rio and features Kia’s signature grille, swept-back headlights and distinctive character line which rises out of the front wheel towards the rear-end.

Described by Kia’s Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, as ‘sporty and elegant’, the B-segment newcomer has a swept-back profile and a character line rising out of the front wheel which gives it a sense of movement and fluidity, even when stationary. Inside, new Rio will offer a feeling of quality typically associated with larger, more expensive models.

The new Kia Rio will make its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
