looks a bit bolder in body design than the old one. I think it'll be a hit with consumers worldwide.

If the production car looks like this (sans 18" wheels), and it drives well, Kia will sell a ton of these cars. It's a great-looking car--much nicer than the Mazda3 5-door IMO.

there's the issue of sticker price. Will it be raised significantly?

Wait a second... Is the Five door shown going to be in addition to the sedan and Cinco... The Hatch back shown has a much smaller cargo area behind the rear seat than the current Cinco. That is the strong point in the Cinco. It can haul a lot of stuff with the rear seat up and even more with it down... The new hatch looks like it is in the Scion Xa and Chevy Aveo range for cargo room behind the rear seat. Kia, don't screw this up
#9 of 613 Kia will introduce this car

at the NA Auto Show in Detroit on January 11, 2005. Should be fun to see how it will look. I'm talking about the 4-door sedan model, the 5-door(Rio Cinco)will debut in March of 2005, I believe in Europe. We'll start with this one, though...it looks great, the pictures of the yellow one linked in post 5. Take a look. Kia will score nicely with this Rio. 1.5L 4 cylinder motors and a longer wheelbase, wider track and more torque and power delivered to the wheels is what Kia is promoting in this new rig. Gonna be fun to check it out!
