The Rio is an important offering from Kia. It is the automaker’s best-selling model around the world. Come this September, the fourth generation Kia Rio will be revealed at the Paris Motor Show.

Ahead of the car’s debut, Kia has dropped some sketches to whet our appetite. While the Rio hatch sketched here likely won’t make US shores, which typically has just the sedan variant, we do see some thoughtful design cues that will look great across the lineup.

Granted, Kia is not re-writing its Rio book just yet. Much looks the same, but Kia designers have further refined the car’s styling. Or, in simpler terms. It looks handsome. The automaker says the new Rio will have better handling, safety and connectivity, but we are going to have to wait for specifics.

What do you think of the Kia Rio? Are you excited for the rumored Rio GT? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
