Kia Rio sedan ready for New York debut

Kia is gearing up to unveil its 2012 Rio sedan at the 2011 New York Auto Show. The booted Rio will sit in the Kia range beside its hatchback sibling (pictured) that debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in early March.

Four powertrains will be available on the Rio in some markets with two gas and two diesel mills in the works. A likely high volume seller is a 1.4-litre gasoline four-cylinder unit, this mill produces 80kW of power and 135Nm of torque, mated to either a six-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission.
