The fourth gen of the Rio has been redesigned on the inside and out – with more straight lines and smooth surfacing.
At the front, the grille is thinner and wider, and the headlamps have become skinnier and more sculpted than on the previous model. Meanwhile, at the back, the windscreen is now nearly vertical, and the rear lamps are thinner, with an arrow-shaped LED light. However, while the details are getting thinner, the car itself has plumped out a bit, expanding width by 5mm (to 1,725mm).
It’s not just the width that’s growing. The fourth-gen Rio has a long bonnet, a longer front overhang, 10mm longer wheelbase, and a shorter rear overhang than the outgoing Rio. In total, that translates to a car that's 15mm longer (making it about the same length as a Ford Fiesta), as well as 5mm lower.
