Kia Rio sketches revealed

Kia has released sketches of the next Kia Rio small family car.

The Rio is set to be unveiled at the Geneva motor in March and will go on sale in the autumn.

The car signals the design direction future Kia models will take, and the company hopes the new Rio's striking styling will encourage new buyers to the brand.

'The new Rio is the next big step in Kia's design revolution' said Kia's director of overseas marketing, Soon-Nam Lee. 'Down-sizing is becoming more and more of a trend these days and a car as attractive as the all-new Rio will help consumers make that switch.'

The Geneva motor show kicks off on March 1.
