|   Sunday, October 23, 2016
With a fluent aspect both outside and inside, the new Kia Rio is presented for the first time worldwide through an exclusive set of images. The world premiere will take place on October 29th at the 2016 edition of the Paris Motor Show.

The design of the new Kia Rio was led by Kia design centers in Germany and California, in close collaboration with global design center in Namyang, Korea. The emergence of the new Rio is defined by straight lines and smooth surfaces, giving the car a distinctive look that inspires confidence.


On the front side, the new Kia Rio wears the latest evolution tiger-nose of Kia’s grille, now thinner in height and wider in the front of the car. Also, the headlights with integrated bi-xenon function are thinner and better drawn than those on its predecessor and boast new LED lights in the shape of the letter U.
The frontal part modifications of the car, which include the fog lights positioning outside the bumper, are thought to confer more power overall appearance.

From the profile, the fourth generation Kia Rio is longer, with a more balanced posture thanks to a longer bonnet, a wheelbase increased by 10 mm (to 2,580 mm), the thinner and vertical C-pillar, as well as the shorter posterior. Overall, the new car is 15 mm longer than its predecessor (now reaching 4,065 mm long) and 5 mm shorter in height (1,450 mm). The straight well-defined lines stretch the entire length of the car, giving it a stronger and confident look.
The new Kia Rio will offer drivers an interior space with a modern design that includes a more ergonomic dashboard than its predecessor.

Like the exterior, the straight lines extend for the whole width of the dashboard, offering greater looks for the cabin and the feeling of space for all occupants.
The dashboard is now oriented towards the driver, having at its center the new infotainment system, floating device HMI (human-machine interface), which has a touchscreen with high resolution. It equips the audio system, navigation and connectivity system of the new Kia Rio. The new HMI interface has allowed reducing the number of existing buttons on the center console.

The new Rio is available with black or gray upholstery fabrics or the artificial leather upholstery variant in black or gray colors. Also, a package of equipment called Red Pack is available which offers artificial leather upholstery in black and red combination for potentials buyers.
The new Kia Rio will offer a degree of practicality at the highest level, the latest safety technologies and connectivity as well as a more exciting level of handling and driving.

Kia Rio was the best-selling model of the Korean manufacturer globally, with more than 473,000 units sold in 2015. The production of the new generation will begin in late 2016 for Europe the timing of production in other regions set to be announced closer to the release date.
Kia’s press conference at the Paris Motor Show will start on the 29th September at 14:45 local time.
