Today, more and more automakers are developing their own line of SUVs, as these models are in high demand among customers.

And the company Kia in this case is no exception. Moreover, the Korean brand produces not only midsize and large crossovers, such as the Sportage and Telluride, but also compact ones.

The latter includes Kia Seltos, which, by the way, is available in our country.

The unstable economic situation in Russia has led to the fact that a number of manufacturers have left our country, and others have «frozen» their business because of problems with components.

Kia is in the second category. However, in the near future, supply chains will be improved and those brands that decided to stay in Russia will be able to gain an additional advantage by selling their products in new segments.

Thus, the designer of the automobile portal supposes that Kia company could increase the interest to its models, if it would introduce an exclusive model — the cross-coupe Kia Rio 2022-2023 to our market. That’s what he showed on his renders.

We should say that the Korean brand has all opportunities for production of such car.

The cross-coupe could be built on the basis of actual Kia Sonet, but the company will have to retool its own Avtotor plant for that.

On the other hand, the model could be based on the architecture of the Rio sedan. In this case, the manufacturer will have to slightly modify the car’s body.

And this option seems more realistic.  As for the appearance of the new Kia Rio 2022-2023 cross-coupe, there are indeed many similarities with the sedan of the same name.

In particular, the car has got T-shaped headlights and grille in «Tiger nose» style.

The model has an increased ground clearance and slightly modified form of the body.

The interior of the new cross-coupe has not been declassified on the renders, but it is not expected to differ much from the sedan with the same name.

Besides, a serious modernization of the interior may greatly affect the price of the parkette, and this will affect its sales figures.

Most likely, under the hood of the car will be placed the same engines as the sedan.

We are talking about 1.4-liter and 1.6-liter motors with 100 and 123 hp. A manual transmission and an automatic transmission can cooperate with them.

It is not excluded, that the model may receive a 177-horsepower turbo-unit on 1.6-liter from Seltos.

Thus parketnik definitely won’t get a four-wheel drive system, as it will lead to internal competition between two cars.

As for the price of the novelty, its price tag should not be much higher than the base sedan.

Most likely, the cross-coupe could be priced by the manufacturer at 1.6 — 2.2 million rubles.
