The new Kia Rio made its debut earlier this month, at the 81st Geneva show. Falling in line with the new Kia identity, the Rio now sports the family DRG as well as certain design cues from other models in the range.
The Rio is a significant leap forward over the outgoing car in all areas, adopting a more Germanic feel. The quality, finish and detailing of the Rio is not far behind its European rivals. In addition to this added quality, the B segment car has grown in all directions. Most importantly gaining around three inches in length, which can be found between the wheels, boosting interior space.
The Rio will also sport an extensive range of fuel-efficient and low-CO2 engines, from a 1.1-litre diesel unit to an all-new, high-performance 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine.
