Kia Visto.jpg

Kia Visto/Hyundai Santro. 1999 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door sedan. F/F, 798 cm³ (I3 OHC), 999 cm³ (I4 OHC). Hyundai expanded Kia into a new market: a sub-1000 cm³ minicar. Based on the Hyundai Atoz, the Visto was more conventionally styled, and exported as the Hyundai Atoz (or Atos) Prime, in some cases replacing Atoz. Narrow, built to a price, and not the most refined, though not as spartan as one might think. Deleted in Korea in 2003, though it remains in production in Pakistan, where it launched in 2000, as Hyundai Santro. Replaced by a reskinned Hyundai Santro Xing in India in 2003.

Manufacturing locations: Ulsan, Korea; Pakistan

Marque: Kia | Predecessor: Hyundai Atoz | Successors: Kia Morning (SA), Hyundai Santro Xing
