Kia anticipates the Paris Motor Show, where it will debut, and reveals today the new Kia Rio. The new Rio, without breaking with his predecessor, evolves in its design with a more aggressive front, more muscular side and almost vertical rear pilots with LED technology.
The new model leaves the 3 – door body to propose only 5 – door bodywork. The 2017 Kia Rio is 5 mm wide and 15 longer than the current model mm. The battle, meanwhile, grows 10 mm.
On board, the new Rio inherited from a dashboard brighter side and completely new design for the Rio. We say to the Rio because the general lines and ergonomics of the dashboard are very similar to those used in the Kia Sportage and Sorento, for example.
Instead of the old square buttons Rio a touch screen allows you to control audio functions, connectivity and navigation . This has reduced the number of buttons on the dashboard. Moreover, the use of black and metallic touches, give the dashboard and inside it a more premium than the current model.
The new Rio will be available with a range of upholstery black or gray, either textile or synthetic leather; a ‘Red Pack “that will give customers the option of black and red upholstery synthetic leather.
It is still early to know the details of equipment, but Kia says it will have the latest equipment of the brand in terms of security and connectivity. Similarly, Kia has not yet revealed the engines that will equip the Rio. However, it is very likely that we find the updated versions 1.2 and 1.4 petrol and 1.1 diesel, the current model.
