Kia Rio K3 not available in 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 necessary for vehicles in Australia. Instead, the focus for the K3 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.
