How disappointing. Most of these colours are old Kia paint from previous year models. Clear White is just what is states. A White Paint better suited for a Utility Truck or Police vehicle. Even Hyundai offers a luxurious soft "off white" on its Tucson SUV. The trend now is most upscale cars is going away from the old traditional drab ordinary (white) but different hues of creamy white. No offering either of a light metallic Frosted Glass Green like Ford offers on its new Focus either. What happened to the Light Metallic Silver Blue? A dynamic new vehicle like the 2012 Kia Rio5 needs a few non traditional colors besides, Dark Grey, Silver Grey, Utility White,Black, Dark Blue,Electric Blue, and Beige. Guess I will have to pick from one of the above since I love the looks of this car regardless. A Stand Out vehicle deserves a few non traditional Stand Out Paint Colors too.

all the colours with a ** are pearl Metallic, * metallic. With the exception of Clear White, Midnight Black, Signal Red all the other colours are new to the Canadian market for the 2012 Rio. Don't forget in the US they tend to not use the same colour name descriptions as we do in Canada and not necessary all the same colours.
There are three new colours on the 2012 Soul "saddle brown" (pearl metallic); "Misty Green" (metallic); "Olive Green" (metallic).
I presume you are from the US as you have not filled out your location in your profile.

Your correct, I`m located down at the "end of the road" in Key West, FL 90 miles from Cuba, which curiously Canadians can visit but American citizens cannot unless they are Cuban and have relatives living on the Island, but thats another matter. I won`t go (there) because the "politics" of the matter really irritates me to no end. That said, on the matter of the Color availability for the upcoming new 2012 Kia Rio, I do realize that Canada often gets different model trim, content, and colors that the US never has access to. Using the color names you provided, a Google searched showed most have already appeared on previous US version Kia`s. I might be wrong, hopefully I am. I really was looking forward to a (White) Rio5, but it appears its going to be the same boring utility white that Kia has used before. I`ll have to find another color selection. I`m personally really tired of Black, Dark Grey and Silver Grey which are the top selling colors of (every) brand vehicle as well as some shade of White. Oh well, the car still looks fabulous.

here's a one page summary of the main features of the 2012 Rio 5 for Canada. MSRP has not yet been announced.

close. This one blows the socks off of anything else in it's size range. The Ford Fiesta is the closest serious competitor, I would think, and the Mazda 2. But this one looks the best, can't wait to see one in person here in Idaho!

Looks like Canada is going to get its 2012 Kia Rio5 earlier then Kia USA. kia/media.com has no information on either trim level, options, or prices. Either they are waiting till the last moment to release the details or its going to be late Fall or Winter for US residents. Local Kia Dealerships said they have received (no) advance media materials and are still taking delivery of 2011 Kia Rio`s being dropped off by car carriers. You would think that Kia Canada and Kia USA despite having some trim & color differences and prices would be rolling out this highly anticipated Model about the same time, guess that does`nt appear to be the case.

don't feel so bad, Kia Canada has not posted any of this on their website either, looking at their website you wouldn't even know there was a new model coming out.

conwelpic, Well safe to say that your (source) for all your "classified" information must be kept secret. Assuming your Canadian, I`m not sure if you would be eligible to get into the US Justice Department`s, "Witness Protection Program" and secretly given a new identity and living location. Maybe Canada has a similar program. Guess us American`s, if we survive the current "Debt Ceiling Crisis", will just have to be patient and await Kia Motors America to reveal specifications,option packages, and prices of (our) version of the 2012 Kia Rio5 whenever they decide to do so. The 2012 Hyundai Accent is going to be a "hard sell" once it`s sibling, the Kia Rio5 finally arrives. Hyundai aught to start rebates and low cost financing immediately (before) Kia launches its new 2012 Rio, IMO.
