It’s been weeks since the second quarter of the year has ended, but Naza Kia appears to be finally ready to bring the new Kia Rio into Malaysia. The company has released its first teaser video of the car, adding that the fourth-generation B-segment hatchback is coming soon.

Longer, wider and lower than before, the new Rio sports new, more mature styling, plus a classier interior that is said to be more ergonomic. Interior space has been increased thanks to the larger body and improved packaging, and the boot is also larger despite a shorter rear overhang. Under the skin, there’s a stiffer bodyshell and a retuned suspension system for more stable and responsive handling.

Despite being completely revised inside and out, however, the Rio will soldier on in Malaysia with the same engine and transmission as before – a 109 PS/137 Nm 1.4 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine mated to a four-speed automatic gearbox. Kia has said that a five-speed auto is in development, but has yet to confirm a timeline for its introduction, and added that there might be an increase in price.
