Kia Rio K3 not available in Australia

The upcoming K3 model will not be available for purchase in Australia. This decision is due to the fact that the vehicle will not be manufactured with right-hand drive, which is necessary for driving in Australia. Instead, the focus will be on developing markets that have less strict safety and emissions standards. These markets include Latin America, the Middle East, and South-East Asia.
