Kia Rio K3 not making it to Australia

The upcoming K3 model, unfortunately, will not be available for purchase in Australia. This is due to the fact that it will not be manufactured in right-hand drive, which is the standard for vehicles in Australia. Instead, the focus of the K3 will be on developing markets that have less stringent safety and emissions standards. These markets include Latin America, the Middle East, and South-East Asia.
