THE all-new, fourth-generation Kia Rio will make its world premiere at next month's Paris Motor Show.

The Rio's new exterior and interior design was led by Kia's design centres in Germany and California, in close collaboration with the company's main design centre in Namyang, Korea.

Straight lines and smooth surfacing give the car a new character, while a longer front overhang and bonnet, longer wheelbase, and more upright rear pillar give the five-door car a more standout and balanced appearance than its predecessor - a rival to the likes of the Ford Fiesta.

The all-new Rio comes with practical and safety technology, the latest connectivity features, and Kia says it delivers a more assured and engaging ride and handling characteristics.

The Rio is the Korean manufacturer's global best-selling model, with more than 473,000 sold around the world in 2015.

The next generation will enter production towards the end of 2016 for Europe, with production timings and prices for the UK to be announced closer to launch.
