Our intrepid friends over at Top Gear Philippines has managed to sneak out some juicy information about the all-new Kia Rio. It's going to be launched soon. On January 19, 2012 to be precise. If the reports are all true, Columbian Autocar Corporation (CAC), the official distributor of Kia automobiles in the Philippines, has already pencil-booked that date for the Rio's launch.

The same report indicated that the all-new Kia Rio will remain with two engine choices: 1.2-liter (86 horsepower, 120 Nm of torque) and 1.4-liter (106 horsepower, 135 Nm of torque) 4-cylinder engines and two transmission options: a six-speed manual and a four-speed automatic.

The top-spec Rio is said to carry features such as a chilled glove box, cruise control, rear parking sensor, Bluetooth connectivity and even a push button engine start/stop button. The range-topper will have a 1.4-liter engine mated to the 4-speed and will have a 5-door hatchback body.
