New Kia Rio design sketch

The lovely people at Kia Ireland have given us some sketches to show the world. Now I know what you’re thinking, we’ll never see this on the road but wait!
This little b-segment car will make its global debut at the Geneva International Motor Show on Tuesday, March 1, 2011. The current Kia Rio was the company’s third best-selling vehicle in overseas markets during 2010 with sales of more than 205,000 units, “Downsizing is becoming more and more of a trend these days and a B-segment car as attractive as all-new Rio, with its driver-oriented cabin and interior trim options, will no doubt help consumers to be more comfortable making that switch. New Rio is the ‘next big step’ in Kia’s design revolution and we anticipate this model becoming even more popular than the current vehicle,” comments Soon-Nam Lee, Director of Overseas Marketing, Kia Motors Corporation.
We’ll wait and see the car in Geneva.
