In the released interior and exterior photos, the car’s body seems larger and the new design has less curves than the predecessor, striving for a refined effect.

The new Rio, sold as Pride in South Korea, will be unveiled for the first time at the Paris Motor Show in October, ahead of its launch in Korea in the second half of next year, the carmaker said.
