New Kia Rio revealed

This is the new Kia Rio, which will be unveiled at the Geneva motor show next month.

The car is set to go on sale in September and will come in both three- and five-door forms.

Sources say the new Rio is longer, lower and wider than the model it replaces and will have a bigger boot.

Expect a choice of petrol and diesel engines, including a 1.1-litre diesel with emissions of 89g/km and a 1.2 direct-injection petrol unit.

More details will be revealed at the Geneva motor show, from March 1.
