The fourth-generation Kia Rio has been spied testing for the very first time.

Set to debut later this year, the new Kia Rio will receive a new body that looks rather different than the current model. Although the spy photos show a heavily camouflaged prototype, we do see LED daytime running lights that helps give the new Rio a more distinct appearance. Unfortunately, the camouflage does do a very good job keeping the new design of the Rio hidden, but that is expected, considering this is the first time spy photographers have caught it testing.

Expect the new Kia Rio to also benefit from new powerplants, although the popular 1.6-liter GDI engine will likely carry over. The current Kia Rio received a facelift in 2014 and was recently named the overall car owners regret buying the most according to Consumer Reports‘ annual owner satisfaction survey. Only 40 percent of current Kia Rio owners said they would purchase the vehicle again and the compact was the least satisfying car overall in the latest survey. Hopefully the Korean automaker can improve the Rio enough to stay away from getting that award again.
