Enhanced Kia Rio will appear at Paris Motor Show

30th September 2014

An enhanced version of the ever-popular Kia Rio will appear at the Paris Motor Show later this week.

The new Rio will have a new style grille, front bumper and headlights, three new alloy wheel designs and a new rear bumper. On the inside of the car, there will be a newly designed centre stack and chrome accents added to the interior.

There will be a choice of four fuel-efficient engines, which will be delivered via a five speed or six speed manual gearbox, or a four speed automatic transmission.

Michael Cole, chief operating officer, Kia Motors Europe, said: "The Kia Rio was our best-selling vehicle worldwide in 2013, with a total of 471,000 sales, and among our top-three sellers here in Europe. Improvements to this model are of major significance for our brand.

"The Rio retains the core attributes that have proved so popular with owners and enhancements to the 2014 model include a slight visual makeover, giving it a fresh exterior and interior look."
