Several images of Kia's facelifted 2010 Rio/Pride have surfaced on the web.

The updated model features a redesigned front end with an aggressive air-intake, more prominent fog lights, and Kia's new grille. More importantly, the biggest change appears to be the availability of colored body cladding. While we cannot be certain all models will receive a monotone appearance, we can only hope so.

Modest changes also occur in the interior. The biggest difference is a redesigned center stack which houses a new radio and an improved climate control system. Other updates include a new steering, a revised instrument cluster, and stainless steel pedals.

Look for the facelifted Rio to start arriving at Korean dealerships within the next few weeks while US arrival is expected towards the end of this year or early next year.
