The company KIA plans to bring to the market model Rio 4 generation in the performance of Cross. It will be a slightly elevated hatchback with a protective plastic body kit around the perimeter of the body. This model was previously presented in China under the name K2 Cross, and it will go on sale as KX Cross.
Outside, the Kia Rio Cross 2018 will receive slightly modified bumpers, lining on doors and wings, roof rails and other wheels. In terms of dimensions, the five-door will be about 115 mm longer than the previous hatchback Rio 3, and also slightly wider than it.
In the cabin, the new model Kia Rio Cross will repeat the original sedan, although it is possible that the manufacturer decides to add such a modification to the special seat cushion or at least the nameplate, for now this is only a guess.
In the Middle Kingdom, for an upbeat hatchback, two petrol engines of 1.4 (100 hp) and 1.6 (123 hp) liters are offered, which are paired with a six-speed automatic, while the initial one can also be ordered with mechanics.
Note that in the market, the Rio sedan is a little different from the Chinese counterpart, so that probably a similar change will receive a five-door Rio Cross. The exact time of its appearance in our country and the price has not yet been announced.
