Hot hatch version of the Kia Rio?

Maybe you've seen photos or drawings of the upcoming Kia Rio (which looks awesome, frankly). Today, rumors of a hot hatch version of the Rio. Could it happen? According to Autocar, it could happen ... at least in Europe.

However, in the U.S., looking at the upcoming hot hatch landscape, it might just make sense here, too. First off, you've got Chevrolet announcing there will be a 1.4-liter turbocharged version of its upcoming Aveo replacement, the Sonic. You've got Ford all but confirming there will be a hot, turbo version of the Fiesta. You've already got a force-fed MINI Cooper. We'll see.
