The Rio is a stylish supermini with plenty to offer in the practicality and performance stakes. Kia has a well-deserved reputation for creating high-quality cars with great value price tags, and the Rio is no exception. Boasting the marque’s industry-leading seven-year warranty, this car ticks a lot of boxes. There are four well-equipped trim levels to choose from: 1, 2, 3 and the limited First Edition.
The Rio has a sleek design with a coupé-like silhouette. Its balanced proportions and elegant curves give it plenty of upmarket appeal, enhanced by swept-back headlights and the distinctive Kia family tiger nose grille. LED daytime running lights wheels are fitted as standard across the range, with alloy wheels making an appearance on the 2 and above.
The Rio has a flexible interior designed to accommodate a family in comfort. The streamlined cockpit enjoys superior build quality, and the silver accents give the whole cabin a classy feel. There is also a 325-litre boot, making the Rio one of the most practical cars in its class.
Buyers have a choice of four engines – two naturally aspirated petrol units, a turbocharged petrol and a diesel engine. All engine options offer reliable performance but the turbocharged unit is the liveliest, delivering great driving dynamics. With its composed handling and smooth ride, the Rio is a rewarding car to drive. Opt for the frugal diesel unit and you will see CO2 emissions as low as 93g/km with returns of up to 80.7mpg combined.
Safety and Technology
Kia equips the Rio with plenty of advanced features as standard. The entry-level Rio 1 offers air conditioning and Bluetooth connectivity as standard and the 2 adds cruise control and a colour touchscreen with a reversing camera. Opt for the Rio 3 to enjoy an upgraded seven-inch touchscreen giving you access to satellite navigation and smartphone integration.
