The 2014th edition of the Paris Motor Show has also seen the debut of the updated Kia Rio and Venga.

Besides pulling the wraps off the one-off Optima T-Hybrid Concept, during the French automotive event, Kia has also decided to introduce the updated versions of the Rio and Venga, during the same salon. The 2015 Rio is now getting different front and rear bumper, two fresh body paints, restyled fog lights, chrome surrounds for the air vents, DAB digital radio, audio video navigation system with a 7-speed display and a carried over engine lineup, including four units ranging between 75 HP and 109 HP, connected to a 5- or 6-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.

The 2015 Kia Venga has been also tweaked on its exterior design and we can now see the LED daytime running lights, the chrome trim between the taillights, new wheel designs in 16- or 17-inch size, two new seat trims in the cabin, darker metal trim, updated center stack fascia, optional heated steering wheel, the above mentioned audio/video system and the same engine lineup, ranging between 77 HP and 128 HP, connected to a 6-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic. The two vehicles will go on sale in Europe next year.
