2012 Kia Rio

Last Updated:

Seems like there will be another good looking small hatchback to look forward to later this year.
And also a new front end design for Kia. Also shown in the KV7 Minivan concept this week at the Detroit show.

Here is the real thing testing in Europe.
Not as dramatic as the illustrations, of course.
But very promising.

  1. it will look modern like the Golf/Jetta. Knowing this is a Kia, it will look very good, and remain close to the sketch. It won't look as aggressive but thats fine.

  2. Obviously from looking at the renderings and the camouflaged car, it isn't going to have quite the appeal of the drawings. But I wouldn't hesitate to buy one if I were shopping in this class.

  3. The rendering looks like a Scirroco/PacMan baby got his first tooth. Not saying that's a bad thing, but I can't get it out of my head.
