Next Generation Kia Rio Threatens Ford Fiesta ST
The Paris Motor Show is coming upon us very quickly and this is where car makers offer up future products along with concept vehicles. With this in mind this is where we are going to see the Kia Rio.
Kia hasn’t been able to hold back the excitement about the Kia Rio as they have launched an image of the vehicle. The Kia Rio hatchback is a great looking vehicle and we are hoping that the vehicle is going to offer up performance that matches the speedy looks of the vehicle.
We have also been treated to some spy photos of the Rio GT when the vehicle was out testing on the tracks while it is under development. The Rio GT is thought to be the top of the range trim and it is thought that it will offer up a 1.6 litre turbocharged engine with 4 cylinders, which should offer up 220 horses.
At the moment you should take this with a dose of salt of course as there hasn’t been any confirmation about the figures. Should Kia be able to offer up a Kia Rio GT that is high quality in the future, it could mean big trouble for the Ford Fiesta ST, which is the leader in the segment at the moment.
