The Kia Rio is nearly four years old, so it isn’t necessarily old enough to be needing replacement. But that isn’t stopping Kia from moving forward with a next-gen model since the company just released some teaser sketches of one.

Posted on the automaker’s global press site, the new official renderings provide us with a very concrete look as to what to expect visually with the fourth-generation Kia.

The next Rio’s design is described to be a result of a collaboration between Kia’s two satellite design centers in Germany and California, and the main HQ in Namyang, Korea. Both are ultimately led by the one and only Peter Schreyer.

The Kia Rio is the automaker’s best-selling model and to no surprise, it isn’t revolutionary in anyway means. Instead, to keep the formula consistently successful, Kia evolved the fourth-generation model to be as good as the outgoing car, but with all the latest and greatest updates.

Expect the new Rio to berevealed on September 29, at the 2016 Paris Auto Show.
