Hot on the heels of new Verna (Accent), here is the brand new Kia Rio to be officially unveiled at Paris Motor Show next month. Think it looks more grown up than current Rio hatchback (which was on sale for a short period of time locally). Curious to see how the 4-door saloon model will turn out to look like. Hope to see C&C bring in both 4 and 5-door model when it eventually arrives here.

The last Rio was really quite excellent... I took a few looks at it at the showroom. Spent quite a bit of time sitting in the car and feeling around. It had a lot of features and had a premium compact hatch feel inside. Of course the price was the same as the mid-range Forte so I couldn't see how they could sell it in our market.

If C&C decides on the same strategy don't expect to see any on the road... Korean badge plus premium price... no go in Singapore.

nice front n rear lamp designs w simple interior n controls; hope the audi-like golfball-like gear knob is for auto instead of manual.

Kia Rio (previous one): L 4,050, W 1720 H 1455 WB 2570

Polo: 3972 x 1682 x 1453, WB 2470

 

RIo slightly bigger all around.

 

For comparison, Golf: 4255  x 1799 x  1452, WB 2637

 

As far as WB is concerned Rio is closer to Golf than to Polo.

Rio will have 5 door? Don't remember the previous Rio having a saloon model for quite sometime already but it would be good to have more choices [thumbsup]

 

That said, will it undercut the K3? It's normally this reason for local ADs not to bring in a lower end model so as not to eat into the sales of a bigger sibling.

length n width closer to polo while wb closer to golf. Good to know it's overall toward golf size. Another key point would be bonnet length wc affect cabin spaciousness.

Current Rio has 4 door version overseas, available in Malaysia iirc. Would have been a decent alternative to Toyota Vios, Honda City and Nissan Almera if available locally. Which is why hoping if there are to be a 4 door version for this new generation, C&C would bring it in and with a good balance between features and price (clear distinction from Cerato Forte K3 EX).
Shouldn't be like the current Accent, not significantly far off in terms of pricing from the Elantra but features are lacking in many areas.

Best of both worlds then right? Easier to maneuver the car (outside smaller) yet more spacious inside :)

4 door as in a sedan? Don't think i would like that at all...for small hatch when made into sedan looks quite off for me. Look at Mazda 2 sedan....

To be honest i think i slight;y prefer the previous Rio. This Rio looks a bit, erm, "mature" which is itself not a bad thing. Just that i always felt the Rio was position as a young person's/boyracer wannabe fun car.

Boyracer also evolve ma.. Now manracer lol

Taste is always individual.

But I agree that sedan may not look as nice like mz2 sedan although mz design looked much better than previous - it doesn't look like patching a boot to a hatch.

Then again if design not mature enough can't compete in current mkt. Just look at similarly mature designs of other makes.

The previous version was decked up with 17 inch rims... looks really fierce lor... I'm sure if this one is properly dressed up it will look sporty too.
