Kia stuns with new Rio

2005-01-05 12:17

Although there is still little detail about this sedan, which is a complete new model, it is known to be more spacious than before.

Its length is similar to its predecessor, which is 4.24m, but the car's wheelbase has increased with 9 cm to 2.5m. This results in much improved interior space.

The car features a 1.6-litre engine with a power output of 81 kW while torque is 145 Nm at 4 500 r/min.

Kia will unveil a hatchback derivative of the Rio at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
