A smart, practical supermini, the new Kia Rio is a car with abundant style and character. With a range of trims and customisation options, it can be specified to your exact requirements, while a seven-year warranty ensures you’ve got a companion you can rely on for many miles to come.
One of the Rio’s key advantages is its size: being small and nippy, it can weave through traffic and slip into tight spots with no trouble. That said, its compact exterior hides a spacious cabin, which has ample room for four to relax.
Depending on the trim you choose, you’ll find an array of paint options and unique alloy wheel designs, as well as a selection of upholstery choices and interior finishes. Inside, you and your passengers will stay comfortable thanks to air conditioning, and with a cockpit oriented around you, you’ll find all the controls and information you need within reach.
A range of nimble petrol engines is on offer, with base models sporting a 1.25-litre 83bhp unit that’s capable of returning up to 51.4mpg on the combined cycle. There are two 1.4-litre options for ‘2’ trim and above, while GT-Line variants are fitted with a powerful 1.0-litre, 118bhp option that whisks you from 0-60mph in 9.8 seconds while emitting as little as 117g/km of CO2. Whichever engine you choose, you’ll find the ride keen and confident, while responsive handling ensures tricky manoeuvres are made simple.
As a modern city car, the Kia Rio comes fully prepared, with technology and safety features to satisfy even the most discerning driver. Air conditioning and Bluetooth with Music Streaming come as standard alongside LED daytime running lights, while stepping up to ‘2’ trim gives you a seven-inch touchscreen with DAB radio and a six-speaker audio system.
Entry-level safety kit includes airbags, Electronic Stability Control and Vehicle Stability Management, with ‘2’ models adding Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist and Lane Departure Warning.
