The fourth generation Kia Rio features a new yet recognizable design. The highlights of the exterior are swept back projector headlamps with U-shaped LED DRLs, wider ‘tiger-nose’ grille and redesigned taillamps with arrow-shaped LED light signature. The B-Segment car is 15 mm longer, 5 mm wider and 5 mm lower than the outgoing version. The wheelbase also has been extended by 10 mm.

The interior features a new dashboard, instrument cluster, centre console, door panels and floor console. The dashboard houses a new ‘floating HMI’ (human-machine interface) touchscreen infotainment system and lesser buttons than before.
