Paris World Premiere for All-New Kia Rio

Exciting times are approaching for Kia, with the all-new, fourth-generation Kia Rio set to make its world premiere on 29 September in Paris, at the 2016 Mondial de l'Automobile.

The Kia Rio is the Korean manufacturer's global best-selling model, with more than 473,000 sold around the world in 2015. And this popular vehicle is about to get even better with progressive new exterior and interior designs, led by Kia's design centres in Germany, California and Korea.

Straight lines and smooth surfacing give the car 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.

The next generation will enter production towards the end of 2016 for Europe, with production timings for the UK to be announced closer to launch.
