Premier made a re-entry in the passenger car market in India during end of 2009 and now Premier Auto LTD (PAL) is considering launching a new facelifted version of the Rio mini SUV by October, 2011.
The new Facelifted Rio gets bigger headlights which look similar to the Fiesta classic, new taillights, re-designed front and rear bumper, rear spoiler, front grille and a set of new alloy wheels. It is referred as Zotye Nomad II in China, The upgraded vehicle is also offered with beige interiors.
The company is working on the Rio update and told our friends at Motobeam that it will be ready in the next 2-3 months time. The Rio would get a engine which would comply with BSIV emission norms. Possibility of the Fiat 1.3 liter Multijet engine powering the Rio is high. Expect better quality plastics and overall fit and finish in the new Rio.
