2012 Kia Rio 5-Door Hatchback To Launch In Malaysia In Fourth Quarter For RM70K!

The 2012 Kia Rio five-door hatchback is launching in the fourth quarter of this year and it is demanding your attention with an expected price tag in the RM 70,000 range, which would make it the cheapest automatic car in Malaysia's non-national B-segment. Naza Kia Malaysia's CEO Datuk Hafiz Syed Abu Bakar announced this competitive pricing last week, so it should be trustworthy enough for buyers shopping in the B-segment to delay their purchases.

The pricing should be only a part of the appeal as the Kia Rio sports an eye-catching design, penned by Peter Schreyer just like the Optima K5 and the Sportage. We are not sure if the equipment level can be class-leading if the finalised pricing is as low as mentioned. Even so, Naza Kia Malaysia appears flexible on the specs and equipment, posting the question If we can bring the Rio to Malaysia, what specs would you LIKE to see? on its Facebook account only three weeks ago. For now, enjoy the 2012 Kia Rio official gallery below!
