    • Its A Convertible From Lexus.. And That's All We Know


    Lexus' showing for the LA Auto Show this week is something very appropriate for the California weather. The luxury automaker released a teaser for the LF-C2 concept. Its obvious that the concept is a convertible, but for what? Speculation ranges from a convertible version of the RC to a topless version of the LF-LC.

    Whatever the concept may be, we won't have to wait much longer. Lexus is planning to reveal the concept tomorrow.

      Previous Page Next Page Kia is teasing the next-generation Rio subcompact a month before its official debut at the Paris Motor Show.
      In the sketches, the next-gen Rio looks to be more aggressive and sharper. Key details to take in include a longer front and swept-back c-pillar. The design comes from a collaboration of Kia's design studios in California and Germany. Inside, it looks to be an evolution of the current Rio.
      Engines will likely include three and four-cylinder engines running on diesel and gas. There is also a Rio GT that will feature tweaks to the suspension and engine. 
      We'll have more details when the Rio makes its debut at Paris next month.

      Paris World Premiere For All-New Kia Rio
      The all-new, fourth-generation Kia Rio will make its world premiere on 29 September in Paris, at the 2016 Mondial de l'Automobile.
      The Rio's progressive new exterior and interior design was led by Kia's design centers in Germany and California, in close collaboration with the company's main design center in Namyang, Korea. Straight lines and smooth surfacing give the car a distinctive new character, while a longer front overhang and bonnet, longer wheelbase, and upright C-pillar give the car an even more confident and balanced appearance than its predecessor.
      The all-new Rio will offer buyers class-leading practicality and safety technology, the latest connectivity features, and more assured and engaging ride and handling characteristics.
      The Kia Rio is the Korean manufacturer's global best-selling model, with more than 473,000 sold around the world in 2015. The next generation will enter production towards the end of 2016 for Europe, with production timings for other regions to be announced closer to launch.
      Kia's 2016 Mondial de l'Automobile press conference will start at 14:45 CET on 29 September. Kia's stand will be located in Hall 3 of the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles.
