If the Rio is a copy of the I20 then that's very good.
Hyundai I20 is very good car.
And I would have a new Rio very very easily.

They are the same car underneath after all, just like an i30 is a Cee'd, i10 is a Picanto and so on.

Indeed.
But the trick was before is that they looked different.
The new Rio looks like a rebadged I20.

Looks a bit to polo'ish for my liking. Maybe trying a bit too hard to be European?

Thought it looked like an Audi!
But that's not necessarily a bad thing.
If you sell to Europe then looking like a Polo is going to be numero Uno on the list.

I agree that dynamically kia want their cars to be like the top European ones. But looks wise I hope they don't copy too much. I liked the last Rio shape, was very different.

the dashboard looks cheap compared to the current model and def vw on the outside, wait for the £1000 to £2000 price increase and no discount

Bmw have lost staff to Koa over the last 3 or 4 years.
Even a engineer from BMWs mtec division is now at Kia.
